London: Easter Garden at St John Vianney's

The Easter Garden

The Easter Garden

The Easter story has been brought to life at St John Vianney's church in West Green Road, north London, with a special garden designed by parish priest Fr Joe Ryan with help on the from some parishioners.

Fr Joe writes: "The Upper Room: The Last Supper: Reminds us of the last meal Jesus had with his disciples and the gift of the Eucharist/ the Mass. He said: "Do this in memory of me".

The Three Crosses: Jesus died on Calvary to redeem all humankind. He was crucified between two thieves.

The Flowing Water from Calvary reminds us of the blessings/ graces given to us through the waters of Baptism. It symbolises our New Life in Christ and out welcoming into the life of the TRINITY, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Empty Tomb: 'Jesus has Risen, he goes before you into Galilee!' Here is the truth that Jesus has overcome suffering and death itself - it is our promise of eternal life.

The Easter Garden reminds us of New Life - New beginnings because of all Jesus has done for us. It is the Good News we need to live every day!"

Thanks to artist Alice Robertson for telling us about the garden.
