Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Through his healing, his death and resurrection, we know that Jesus came to heal us and give us life. Jesus faced down sin in a way that led to greater harmony and wholeness. We are facing down the Coronavirus by reaching out to those who are self-isolating and social-distancing themselves; a process that is making the whole community (or better) our family stronger. It reveals the deep care and love we have for each other. Celebrating mass without your presence is emotionally distressing although I feel your spiritual presence even more strongly. The generosity and help you give to so many is a true sign of hope for the future. Despite the suffering and evil caused by the virus, the days and weeks ahead will be filled with God’s blessing for each of you – those you serve and those you love. We can proudly proclaim together: God reigns! God reigns! God reigns!

Yours faithfully,

Fr. Justin AA (Parish Priest)
