PARISH MAGAZINE /AAY, 1908. EASTER. Iu was very gratifying to find that the numbers who attended Church on G-ood Friday are increasing and satisfactory to see that numbers, specially young men, evidently on a holiday, had broken their journey and took part in a Three Hours' Service at Holy Trinity Church. The Three Hours' Service was impressively conducted by the Eev. D. W. Evans, whose addresses were a great help to those present. Easter Day was bright, and the congregations were very large, as were also the number of communicants, and we feel grateful for a very happy day; the blessings of which we trust will be per¬ manent. We take this opportunity of thanking the Rev. R. W. Clarke, the Rev. D. W. Evans, the Rev. W. P. Whitting- ton, the Rev. J. P. Rogers, and the Rev. P. H. Rees for valuable help during Holy Week at Eiaster. EASTER DECORATIONS. The Churches were beautifully de¬ corated for Easter.
