BREAM VICARAGE
17 March, 1926

MY DEAR FRIENDS AND PARISHIONERS,
Good Friday will soon be here. It is the day on which we think of our Lord on the Cross, bearing our sorrow and our sins, for us and with us. Let me appeal to you to come to the services on this sacred day.
Easter gives us a new hope. It will be a happy Easter if we have taken our station at the Cross.
A good Holy week means a happy triumphant Easter. God grant that we may pass out from our Easter Communion with a new happiness, unconquerable hope, and the gift of an unending life.
Owing to the space beneath the picture of the Church on the Magazine Cover not now
being required for advertising purposes, I have rearranged the parish matter and feel sure that this rearrangement will meet with general approval.
Your sincere friend and Vicar,
Wm. J. JOYCE
