Congratulations to all who helped to make Holy Week special in St. Michael’s. It is a very special time of year for all Christians and a reminder of what living the Christian Way of Life is all about, and where our inspiration comes from – The Risen Jesus. Thanks to all who prepared our church, participated in the liturgies each day and by your presence made a difference.
On behalf of Frs Eugene, John and Liam we wish a Happy and Peaceful Easter to all.
