 SUNDAY APRIL 28th Second Sunday of Easter


A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.



We believe but did not see the rising of the Lord. Alleluia! Let us praise the risen Lord Jesus Christ.



Almighty Father, you have given your only Son to die for our sins
and to rise again for our justification:
grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness
that we may always serve you in pureness of living and truth;
through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.



Lord God our Father, through our Saviour Jesus Christ
you have assured your children of eternal life
and in baptism have made us one with him:
deliver us from the death of sin and raise us to new life in your love,
in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,

by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.


TODAY’S READINGS – (Page 898/900)

First Reading                         Acts 5:27-32

The apostles find the strength to speak the gospel of the risen Lord, despite the dangers. The power of the Holy Spirit has turned them into people of action.


Second Reading                     Revelation 1:4-8

A message to the early church in Asia about the power of Christ and the fact that God is from the beginning until the end of time the Almighty one.


Gospel                                                St. John 20:19-31

Thomas the blunt one! Who could blame him for struggling to understand what others had told him. The idea that Jesus was alive was truly amazing and there would be more signs to come.
