A Message from Fr Dan: The Ascension of the Lord

This weekend we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension, when Jesus Christ in the presence of his followers, ascended into Heaven. People often ask the question, ‘but where is Heaven?’. In the past we had a rather simplistic idea, that earth was here and Heaven was somewhere up there in the clouds. We thought of…

A Message from Fr Dan: Prayer
