St. Mary Magdalene’s Church, Essendine – April 2022

Easter Greetings from St Mary Magdalene’s Church, Essendine. 

I hope you are all well and managing to stay warm and enjoying the Easter holidays. It is so lovely to see all the lambs out in the fields. I’m sure we are all looking forward to some warmer weather so we can get out into the garden. As sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine, it would be a lovely sign of support if we all plant some sunflowers in our gardens this year. 

Our prayers this month are with all the Charity workers and volunteers looking after the refugees around the world. We pray especially for the people of Afghanistan and Ukraine. May they receive a warm welcome wherever they chose to settle. 

To all those who are ill at home or in hospital our thoughts and prayers are with you.
