PARISH MAGAZINE APRIL, 1910. HOLY WEE|K AND EASTER. Though, there remains a great deal to be done, before we realize as we ought to the truths taught during Holy Week and Easter and gain for the season such an observance as its dignity and importance claim, we are, however, thankful for signs that we may hope that some progress is made in the right direction. The atten¬ dances at t'he special services have been as compared with former years good, and we are very grateful for the helpful in¬ structions of our special preachers during Lent and Holy Week, especially must we mention the Dean of Bangor, who in addi_ tion to giving instructions during Lent conducted the Three Hours' Service in Holy Trinity Church on Good Friday. We are thankful also for the marked in¬ crease in the number of communicants in our Churches, and we are glad to be able to state tihat there was not only an in¬ crease in each Church, but also in each section—the Welsh as well as the English. We pray that all this may mean a corres¬ ponding progress in the inward spiritual life of all our members, which we trust will also have a corresponding influence upon our life and our work in the service of our Risen Lord. EASTER DECORATIONS. Notwithstanding the early date of Easter Sunday this year and the difficulty of obtaining flowers, we were glad to find that the Churches were beautifully de¬ corated for Easter and the good taste in which the decoration were done was gener¬ ally noticed by those who attended the Churches.
