Sharing the Easter Story

As we welcome the vacation​, the Easter celebrations and activities enable a sharing of the Easter Story in our families and friends.  The Easter Story enables us to follow the last days of Jesus’ life before his resurrection.   It is an important time in the Christian calendar and reminds us of the sacrifice Jesus made.  

During Holy Week, our focus is on God’s love for all and what it means to be people who are full of hope.   This same message, being ‘people of hope’, has been shared often by Pope Francis to us over the Lenten Season, and is one that continues to inspire us.   We are reminded that all the symbols of Easter, the chocolate eggs and rabbits, are signs of new life and connect us to the underlying meaning of Easter, in the rising of Jesus to new life.

Easter is a time for reflection, renewal, and hope.  I wish you all a very happy and holy Easter Season, and an enjoyable vacation period. 

I look forward to welcoming you all to Term 2 on Monday 15 April 2024.
