Finally, on Easter Sunday afternoon, we get to rest after all the ceremonies. Our priest needs lots of help and support to make sure they happen, even in simplified form, so we have been flat out the whole weekend. Even today, after 8am Mass we held the traditional Easter egg hunt and games for the community along with stew and rice breakfast and frozen cups of fizzie drink, which they buy to make up the ‘parish’s’ contribution to Project Compassion. Sounds like we might have made about $1500 out of that.
Above pic shows Fr Nicholas, in the red shirt, drawing the raffle with the usual gaggle of kids.
During this week I will try to put together more images of life here.
Off now to see the locals’ fishing competition up at the barge landing ramp on the coast.
Lots of love to all and Easter blessings
from Mum and Dad.
