1st April 2018 – Easter Sunday

      Easter Garden, Christ The King Church, Turner’s Cross

At Easter when the Alleluia resounds again, we celebrate the Risen Christ, the centre and fulfilment of the universe and history. The one who was mocked and killed is King of Kings, is Lord.  He is the first born from the dead, risen as he said, the source of our hope as we journey through this valley of tears.  Pope Francis says the Christian belief in the Resurrection of Christ and in our own resurrection at the end of time is more than just wishful thinking, but rather is confidence in something certain
