To my dear St. Nicholas community – my sisters and brothers in faith,
This is the feast which surpasses all feasts. This is the feast that brings us the fullness of joy and and the fulfillment of God’s divine promise to us, God’s children: the resurrection of Jesus the Christ from the grave brings us New Life and a share in Paradise.
I wish to share with you my fullest and deepest blessings and my love which, first and foremost, is rooted in Our Lord and graciously and willingly shared with each and everyone.
Happy Easter. Celebrate and rejoice, my friends . . . Jesus is alive and His reign shall last forever and ever.
Your brother and friend,
Vicar, St. Nicholas Episcopal Church
