An appreciation of the Easter Services--
Dear Father and Deacon Tommy,
Anne and I were so impressed by this years Triduum and Easter services that we feel we must make some expression of our appreciation. Clearly that success was gained only by time consuming planning, effort and hard work, by you and your excellent team of dedicated parish volunteers, I would ask you to thank them all, on our behalf. As a parish we are so lucky to have such a group of willing workers to enhance our worship. I have been told that many churches have commented upon the loss of interest in Lenten and Easter services. Nobody witnessing the attendance, execution and organisation of ours could possibly suggest that applied at St Andrew’s. It was all very impressive and heart warming.
You all deserve our thanks and our prayers.
Dick and Anne Docherty.
