Message from the Rector

This Easter will be unlike any we have experienced in our lifetimes.
I’m struck by the number of Easters when I’ve walked into the church—watched all of you flood through the doors, and how I never saw that as part of the miracle of Easter. Many of us have been privileged to come to Easters past from lives of safety and comfort, with easy cries of “Alleluia” on our lips, this year, we are not so privileged.
It is true that individually, or in groups, we may have come to Easter with grief or pain foremost in our hearts, and our Alleluias have been more of a whisper than a shout, but this year, we are all in places of loss, anxiety, sadness, grief, and uncertainty.
This year is just different.
