What Easter means for me
There are many ways of stating the meaning of Easter. The way I prefer is this: Easter means that the best things in life will
never be lost. Those first followers of Christ had found in Him their highest hope and their deepest faith. God knows that most of them ʻ…left everything at once to follow Himʼ. To them Jesus represented everything that life ought to be. He was love. He was courage. He was kindness. He was integrity. He was truth. He was the best of everything. On a fateful Friday afternoon, the followers of Jesus saw their highest hope and their deepest faith wrapped in a winding sheet and placed in a tomb. But early in the morning on the first day of the wee, they went to that tomb and found it empty. He was alive again, and so were their hopes and dreams!
In regard to the Easter Offerings envelopes given by Parishioners to the working priests of the parish at Easter time (sometimes called “The Easter Dues”) this may help. You’ll find the brown envelopes for this purpose in your household envelope box, and it is dated 5th April. The special brown envelopes can be dropped into the collection box at the door, to the collectors in the porch or into any collection basket on Easter Day. Should you fail to find this special brown envelope at home, any brown
envelope will suffice, but make sure it has your regular envelope number on it (or yourname).
Thank you for your generosity.
