Church of England Diocese of Blackburn Accrington Saint Mary Magdalen

Easter Message

7 Apr 2020, noon



After the Hosannas of Palm Sunday, we are working our way through this dark and sombre week, following Jesus through the events in Jerusalem – the Last Supper, the washing of the Disciples’ feet, Jesus’ arrest and interrogations and eventual crucifixion on Good Friday. Let’s remember through all this that the power of God was in full flow.

However we are feeling at the moment in our present situation, let us remember the same thing. God is here with us! Let us find resilience and strength in his wisdom. We will arrive at ….


A day of rejoicing at Jesus’ resurrection. A day for thankfulness and celebration.

As HM the Queen broadcast on Sunday, the time will come when we will be able to meet again as a church family – with sincere thankfulness and rejoicing.

Until that time comes, please continue to pray for, and on behalf of, our church community. To know that others are doing the same as us is reassuring, comforting – and powerful!

If you need ideas for prayers, readings services on line, do look at the Coronavirus section of the Diocesan website (

Meantime, KEEP STRONG!



With Best Wishes for a Blessed and Happy Easter!
