We tell your story
Holy Week is a time filled with lots of opportunity for worship, prayer, reflection and experience. I encourage you to use the great days of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Eve and Easter Day as “holy days” so that on each of these days you can listen and hear God speaking to your hearts and minds.
May you journey well with Christ in this holy week.
Rev Cannon Ian Howarth is the Rector of the Anglican Parish of St Paul's Kyneton and St John's Malmsbury and is the team leader of the Central Highlands Cluster.
