Easter Message 2024 - Diocese of Kilmore

We celebrate Easter, the rising of Jesus from death, as the Springtime of growth watered by the rains, emerges, and begins to blossom into the beauty and diversity of new life.

During Easter, may we take time in the presence of our loving God to be reminded how the waters of our baptism calls us to a mission and a purpose in life.
As the rain and snow water the earth to give growth (Is. 55:11), may our time with God’s Word yield the growth of justice, and peace in our world.
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.
+ Martin Hayes, Bishop of Kilmore
