Easter message from Father Simon

Dear Parishioners,

I wish you all a happy and holy Triduum.   Unfortunately I cannot be with you as I have an infected ulcer, but will be with you in prayer.   However, my main concern is that the ceremonies go well and that you enjoy this happy and holy feast.

God bless you all.

Father Simon
