Secretary office roof leak—For the time being it appears our roof leak has been fixed. This is great news for your church secretary!
Shrove Tuesday Men’s Pancake Supper—had a lower attendance this year. This may have been due to the desperately freezing cold temperatures that night. It was suggested that we do more advertising for next year’s event.

An Easter Poem
Children searching in the courtyard
For treasures hidden among the rocks
Early morning dew on the grass
Seeping through their shoes and socks
Their eyes shine brighter as they find
Candy colored treats for them to keep
It’s a special day, but do they
Really understand what it means
Yes, it’s a day of joy and love
A day that’s overflowing with glee
But it’s a day that was given
As a gift for both you and me
We call this occasion Easter
Because Jesus returned on this day
So the flowers would bloom and rise
And the children could run and play
God does not love us because we are valuable.
We are valuable because He loves us.
By Fulton John Sheen
