Service: Easter 2018 Foolish?

From Thursday, March 29th, 2018 until Sunday, April 1st, 2018

Easter in 2018 falls on April Fools’ day.  Some may think this appropriate as the Easter message can seem like deep foolishness, a crucified king and talk of a resurrection.  Yet for Christians this story is the power and wisdom of God, showing both his very nature and how we are to live.

To not think about such things would be foolish.

This will be a major emotional event attended by the Governor of Tasmania, Her Excellency Professor the Honorable Kate Warner AM, the Lord Mayor, other dignitaries, senior Defence Officers in full uniform, members of the ex-service community and the Department of Veterans’Affairs.  The Rev’d Chris Bowditch, Chaplain of 12/40 Royal Tasmanian Regiment will be speaking.

All members of the public are cordially invited to attend and a special invitation is extended to ex-service personnel.  After placing of the official crosses, the Field is then open to members of the public to the place small wooden crosses following the service.

On ANZAC Day, the crosses will be placed at the Hobart Cenotaph where they will form an integral part of the ANZAC Day commemorations.

The Field of Remembrance model adopted on the concept of Mrs CJ Pope, widow of Rear Admiral Pope RAN.  In 1952 Mrs Pope, assisted by the War Widows’Guild, organised the first Field in the grounds of St Andrew’s Cathedral, Sydney by courtesy of the Cathedral Chapter, and with the encouragement of the Dean, The Very Reverend Dr S Barton Babbage.  Similar Field of Remembrance Services are held in other Australia States under the auspices of the War Widows’ Guild of Australia.
