A Collect for Easter Day
Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Birthday blessings to Eliza Johnston and Ligouri Tewes. Anniversary blessings to Oliver and LeAnn Johnston.
Warmest regards in Christ,
Reverend Charlie
