PARISH MAGAZINE AAY, 1909. EASTER. We again refer with thankfulness for the privileges accorded to us on Easter Day, and indeed for the improvement visible in the attendances in Church dur¬ ing Lent and Holy Week. The large and increased attendances at the celebrations on Easter were very encouraging, and we take it, a hopeful sign that all the congregations during the day were excep¬ tionally large. We trust that the lessons of the great Festival will be more and more realized from year to year with the result that we all may become more faithful servants and followers of our ever-living Lord. We all thank the special preachers whose sermons and addresses during Lent and Holy Week were so full of helpful teaching and spiritual encouragement. DECORATION'S FOR EASTER.
