Easter in Rochester

Fr Thompson writes: On behalf of my people and I may I say how we have been overwhelmed by the messages of love and prayerful support which we have received from all parts of the ACC, and from without, following the desecration of our chapel. We are especially very moved and give grateful thanks to our Episcopal Visitor, The Rt Revd Rommie M Starks and friends in his Diocese of the Midwest for their generosity in assisting us to purchase a new tabernacle for the Chapel.

On Good Friday and Holy Saturday some of us were able to travel to St Augustine's Church, Canterbury to be with the Bishop and Vicar General for the Liturgies on those holy days.

On Easter Day some of us took shelter from the snowfall, in the church porch, the only part of the building we currently have access to, an act of fellowship celebrated a service of Holy Communion from the Reserved Sacrament. (Photo on our Gallery page.)
