O HAPPY DAY

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. We believe this picture says everything about Easter day at Grace. From the youngest to the oldest, it was enjoyed by all!

Many thanks to each and every person who helped make Holy Week truly special.

Easter was truly a beautiful day celebrating the good news that the Lord has risen! Alleluia.
