SECOND SUNDAY OF EASTER - 7th April 2024

My Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Alleluia! Christ is risen. He is risen indeed. Alleluia! 

The great joy of the Lord’s Resurrection continues. Even though we cannot see God, we are encouraged by the triumph of Christ’s Resurrection and we profess our faith that God will raise us too. Alleluia! Christ is risen. He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
