Welcome back to Term 2, I hope you enjoyed the Easter break with the wonderful weather over this time. It is great to be back after a sabbatical in Ireland it gave me an opportunity to reflect on my own faith and connect with an amazing group of people. I believe that I will be able to share some of my learning through conversations and other activities at St Joseph’s. Easter is a time for celebration and reflection. As Christians today we are called to live, proclaim and celebrate Jesus’ victory over death by resisting all those forms of death and violence that saturate our society and not only unjustly take the lives of innocent people, but can desensitise our spirit and damage our belief in freedom and justice for all. There are constant hints of resurrection in our daily lives, foretastes of our ultimate resurrection. These are found daily in our downs and ups, our sorrows and joys, our worries and relief, our disappointments and successes. Easter Sunday offers an opportunity to celebrate all our small, personal “resurrections” and unite them with Jesus’ Resurrection. It offers us renewal to be people of faith, hope and love in our home and in our community.
