Notices for Week of 30 April 2023

Notices: Easter 4, 30 April 2023

Good day dear friends, 

In today’s Gospel we are invited to enter into abundant life through Christ, who is the Gate. When we are conscious of being IN Christ, it is WITH Christ that we enter through the Gate into the Life and Love that is the eternal flow of the relational life of God.

Spirituality is about the life long transformation of our consciousness, of becoming aware that Life is through, with in Christ and as Christ. Taking the time to get to know Jesus as the Shepherd and the Gate is the Way to this loving realisation. 

It is the way to rich, deep and abundant Life. It is the experience of Easter. Allelulia!


Father Gerald+
