TO THE HARBOUR PARISHES
We seek to be an inclusive, welcoming, caring, worshipping Christian community in which the values and teachings of Jesus are lived, shared and celebrated.
Easter Sunrise over Cork Harbour
What a beautiful sunrise we witnessed this morning over the still waters of Cork Harbour. It was almost as if nature itself were proclaiming the Resurrection of Christ that we celebrate this Easter morning.
Basil Hume once wrote that 'Hope is the great gift of Easter!' We wish that gift of hope to all our parishioners this Easter as we continue to struggle in challenging times.
In her diary during World War II, Anne Frank wrote: 'Where there is hope, there is life. It fills us with courage and makes us strong again.' May the resurrection of Christ that we celebrate this Eastertide fill us with courage, renew our strength and help us to trust in better days to come.
Happy Easter to everyone.
