Good Friday
Reflection:  Jesus carries his cross outside the city to a rubbish dump.  This beautiful park was once a rubbish dump; but it has been transformed, resurrected, by years of hard work. Food scraps were composted and turned into soil, every tree you see was planted, energy was generated.

From the sun and wind, water was captured, conserved and recycled.   After many years of dedication the soils returned to fertility.

Prayer:  Jesus, you carried your cross alone, yet you reached out to the marginalised: the refugee, the unemployed, the mentally ill.  Grow in us the compassion to love and serve the marginalised and dispossessed.

Easter Sunday 21st April  10 a.m. 
A celebratory Easter Sunday Service, to be led by Rev. Coralie Ling.

All gatherings held in the CERES Learning Centre, along the path from the Lee Street entrance, CERES Environmental Park in East Brunswick.  see google map and site map CERES_Site_Map_Web
