The parish staff and I wish you a grace-filled Holy Week and a blessed Easter !
The message of Easter is fullness and newness of life. Jesus rolls away the stone of discouragement, dread, doubt, defeat, fear and death. He allows the life of joy, peace, love, and light to permeate, so that there could be new beginnings. Christ invites us to journey with him to experience the same.
During this Easter season at St Julie's, 21 elect (2 adult and 19 children) will be baptized and fully initiated. Together with them, 8 adults will celebrate their First Holy Communion and Confirmation. We also have 213 children and youth celebrating their First Holy Communion and Confirmation. We celebrate with them and congratulate them! Our prayer is that each of them will roll away the stone of discouragement, dread, doubt, defeat, and fear to live their life from the fountain of love.
I pray that you and your family will experience the joy of this blessed Easter !
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia !
God bless you all !
