It is with a sad heart that I must also watch the Easter ceremonies online. Last weekend the COVID app on my phone informed me I was a close contact with someone who tested positive. I had a COVID test and thankfully it was negative. However, the guidance from the HSE is that I must restrict my movements for 14 days.
I’m deeply indebted to Fr. Liam and Fr. Christian who have very kindly agreed to lead the Easter Services. I’m very grateful to all the Parish Staff, our group of volunteers who work on a daily basis to ensure the Church is sanitised and safe and all who decorated and prepared the Church and Liturgies for Easter.
The Easter message is one of hope and joy and we are called to try to face this difficult time of pandemic with the humble power of love that Jesus showed.
I wish you all a very Joyful, safe and healthy Easter and please God we can look forward to a brighter and hopefully more normal summer.
Take care and God Bless,
