A message from Dr. David Malloy, King's Principal:

On this Easter weekend, I’d like to wish all those in the King’s community who are celebrating, a very happy and blessed celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This most important time on the Christian calendar gives us greater hope and promise, something we all so desperately need right now.

This weekend, one of our faculty in Religious Studies, Professor J.K. Kato is featured in an article that discusses faith and how it can give us hope during the pandemic. It was published in the London Free Press and I want to share it with you today.

Dr. Kato was asked by reporter Dan Brown if faith has a function. His answer gives me strength to carry on during this new shutdown, "Faith's role is to give us an optimistic attitude to life, an attitude that 'believes' that life is worth living in spite of everything."

I would like to commend and thank the King’s Campus Ministry team for continuing to share and celebrate, despite great challenges, the message of Easter this weekend. Fr. Béchard and his team had to make a significant change to their Tridiuum celebrations very late on Thursday, reducing in-person participation to just 15% capacity at the Chapel on the Mount. 

Thanks to technology you can join Easter weekend Mass through the following online links:

Saturday, April 3, 2021; 9 p.m. Easter Vigil (Livestream) on Facebook or YouTube.

Sunday, April 4, 2021; 11 a.m. Easter Sunday (Livestream) on Facebook or YouTube.

On behalf of my family, Valerie, Brigid, Bronwen, Gaelan and Lynn, Connor, Sarah, and baby Bruno (and Adh!), I’d like to wish the King’s community a very happy and blessed Easter. As well, Sunday night marks the end of Passover for those in the Jewish community. To all who are celebrating, I wish you Happy Holidays this weekend. We hope each and every one of you are able to relax and recharge over the long weekend. 

As always, take care of yourself, each other and we have faith that this place will be back together again in the fall.
