Easter at St Disens

Blessed with fine weather, Easter this year saw the solemnity of Good Friday’s Walk of Witness in remembrance of Jesus’ crucifixion move to the joy of celebrating his resurrection on Easter Sunday.  A day that was made more special, as we also had a baptism.  Congratulations to Luke.  And in between there was the fun of our Eggstravaganza, including a grand Easter Egg hunt.  Our thanks to all who helped out over the weekend and also to those who decorated the church for Easter – it looked its very best.  Our thoughts and prayers, however, are also with all those caught up in the bomb attacks in Sri Lanka.
