THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER

VESTIBULE DISPLAYS

Many thanks to Claire Scullion for the Lenten / Easter tableaux which were set out for us in the Atrium of the Church. Thanks also to those who arranged the flowers and plants in the Sanctuary to highlight the significance of the Resurrection of Our Lord. Holy Week also required so much extra work for those who clean, or work in the sacristy, the choir, organists, the welcoming ministry etc. We are deeply grateful to all who have contributed so much.
