BEACONSFIELD PARISH NEWS
This weekend we celebrate the Feast of Christ's Ascension into Heaven, the crowning of His Easter victory over sin and death. While on one level the Ascension meant bidding a farewell, in reality it is about a new way of the Lord Jesus being presented to us with the power of the Holy Spirit. We remember Him sending out His Disciples, and we remember His promise to stay with us until the end of time. So today is a joyous day, a day to look upwards where Christ sits in glory at the right hand of the Father. Our destiny is to share in the glory of Christ.
