Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song."

Pope at Easter Vigil: Roll away the stones that crush hope

"Why do you seek the living among the dead?” is the recurring theme in Pope Francis’ homily during the Easter Vigil Mass in St Peter’s Basilica, as he challenges us to roll away the stones of sin and discouragement. Click here to read more.


Fr. D'Sa's Weekly Reflection

April 21, 2018 – Easter Sunday

The other day I was kidding with Fr.  Rowell, saying that we may need to postpone the Easter celebration because his chicken coop wasn’t ready.  No coop…No chickens and hence No Easter eggs.

Is Easter all about Easter eggs? We all accept the fact that an egg holds a miraculous life hidden within. Similarly the sealed tomb of Christ on Good Friday had a life buried in it. After three days the living Christ rose from the dead.

Alleluia! The Lord has indeed Risen. We rejoice in the victory of our Savior over suffering and death. Christ through His cross and resurrection has destroyed the power of sin and death. Christ has altered the meaning of grave / tomb in their entirety. During Easter, we sing His praises for the promise of our new life in Him. We will observe this feast for the next fifty days and reflect on the ultimate purpose of life.

At the Easter vigil we will be welcoming our newest members into the Church. It has been a holy opportunity for me to walk with them on their journey of learning the truths of our faith. The RCIA team has been instrumental in leading them into full communion with the Roman Catholic Church. A word of appreciation is given to the team members.

I wish to extend my sincere and prayerful Easter wishes to every one of you. May the Risen Lord enlighten your minds and hearts with His joy and peace.

Please pray for me and Fr. Rowell and Deacons Tony, Frank and Dance who serve our Parish. Be assured of our humble prayers.   

Happy Easter!

Fr. Bernard D’Sa
