Read SA-NT Bishop David Altus’ message that has been published in The Advertiser for Easter 2020.
A few weeks ago so many things seemed unthinkable. So much has happened in such a short time. Our world has been turned upside down by a virus, something so small we can’t even see it, but we have seen its effects overseas and now here too.
This Easter will be very different for all of us. Thankfully technology is helping us through these tough times and we thought we would share some ways that will help you stay connected this Holy Week.
We are sure there will be many stories of hope to come out of our churches during this crisis. As we move forward in the coming months, please keep us informed about what you are doing and how you are reaching out to others in this time of need.
