Bishop of Kilmore highlights importance of new life this Easter

A local bishop has highlighted the importance of "new life" this Easter Weekend.

Bishop of Kilmore, Martin Hayes released a statement to Northern Sound ahead of this Easter Weekend. 

He highlighted the importance of taking time in the presence of God this Easter in a bid to remind us how the waters of our baptism calls us to a mission and a purpose in life. 

In a statement issued to Northern Sound, Bishop Hayes said that as we gather in faith at Easter, may we "rejoice" in being "nourished by the celebration of our Risen Lord and so be hopeful for the future."

He added that as the rain and snow water the earth to give growth, may our time with God's Word yield the growth of justice, and peace in our world.
