Happy Easter, Everyone! 

May heaven be praised, may God be adored.

Everything is changed for I have seen the Lord!

 First of all, a big welcome to any visitors to the Church today to celebrate this great event of Easter. Everything is indeed changed, particularly our understanding of ourselves and of our future.


What a joy it has been – so far(!) – to celebrate Easter here at St. John Fisher. We have been able to journey with the Lord on a Way that led him through suffering and death to joy and new life. That journey also describes our path and our calling through difficulties, through suffering and yes, through death to joys and to new life. We place therefore with Him.

 Let me thank everyone involved: The stewards, the readers, the cleaners, the altar servers, the sacristans, those who have led the Stations of the Cross, those in the music ministry, the person who produced our Easter Garden, and of course those responsible for the wonderful floral display.

I also offer my personal thanks for your Easter offering, your gift to me.

 In case you weren’t here last week let me repeat my notice about the card we received from King Charles. When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth died we compiled a Book of Sympathy and sent it to Buckingham Palace. We got a reply from King Charles last week. He writes: 

It was so very kind of you to send such a wonderfully generous message following the death of my beloved mother. Your most thoughtful words are enormously comforting, and I cannot tell you how deeply they are appreciated at this time of immense sorrow. Charles R

The card is on the sanctuary if you’d like to see it, next to the Easter Garden.                                                                             God Bless,           Fr Doug

Coffee and tea are served in the hall every week following the 10.30 Mass and all are welcome.  We are looking for 2 more people to join the Coffee Rota – this would mean once every 6 weeks. Do please consider joining the Rota to help the existing volunteers – please contact Anne Rayer.  (07855 785331)
