Happy Easter everyone!
We had a fantastic climax to our Holy Week last night at the Easter Vigil and this morning at Easter Sunday Mass. Last night we were baptizing three adults - Ceri, Dan and Tia. Everything went very well and there was a lovely happy atmosphere. One of the highlights was that when I gave a kiss of peace to the new Catholics I received a lipstick imprint which remained on my right cheek throughout the rest of Mass - much to everyone's amusement!
This morning 10.30am was a Family Mass, which Christ the King do very well - thanks to the kids' caring direction by Marie and her team. Well, it was excellent imho (that's "in my honest opinion" for those who don't know). Below is a picture of the altar cloth that was brought up at the Preparation of the Gifts. One ex-teacher commented as he left "11 out of 10 for getting 400 people smiling as they leave Church". Alleluia!
Many, many thanks to all in our 3 Churches who have worked so hard together to make this a very special Holy week and Easter!
