By JEROME GAVELLE Churches on the island are preparing for their busiest time of the year. St Peter s Catholic Church in Little Oneroa will have several celebrations during Holy Week and will be paid a visit by assistant bishop of Auckland Robin Leamy. Catholic Church spokes- woman Pat Canning says Easter celebrations are always very well attended by followers. By the time we get to Easter Sunday we expect to have the church full, with people even having to stay outside, because the story of salvation is primarily import- ant for Catholic believers, she says. Christians celebrate Jesus resurrection on Easter Day or Easter Sunday, two days after Good Friday which commemorates the passion and the crucifixion, and three days after Maundy Thursday, which celebrates Jesus last supper with the Apostles. Anglican Church adminis- trator Mary Batten says more people attend services at Easter than the rest of the year. This is because visitors to the island tend to come to the celebrations, and also people who can t manage to come every week make a special effort to come for the Easter services. The Anglican Church on Waiheke is a local shared ministry which takes res- ponsibility for its services itself but which is supervised by a minister in Auckland who visits once a month to give training to the four sac- ramental local ministers for the preparation of the services. Anglican Church cele- brations will take place at St Andrews in Onetangi and at St Peter s Catholic Church in Little Oneroa. Ms Batten says: We are in the process of building a new church but meanwhile the Catholic people very kindly invited us to share their church for our services. We ve had a few combined services with Catholics and it has worked out very well, she says. St Paul s Presbyterian Church in Oneroa is also expecting good attendance over Easter, Pastor Alan Smith says. Easter is the most import- ant Christian celebration of the year and, as with Christmas, it is a time of the year when people who don t come to church on a regular basis do turn up, which is always good. Fundraiser concert boosts school jazz High School fundraiser: From left: Lyndsay Meech, Leonie Perry, David Paquette, Lucy McCarthny and Hannah Judd. ' It was a fantastic night of fantastic music. ' Sarah McNabb Head of music A jazz concert at Wai- heke High School has raised $910 to help young musicians. The concert featured jazz man David Paquette and was part of an initiative by the musician to kickstart a jazz programme for students. Mr Paquette was joined by trumpeter Lyndsay Meech and some talented students on stage. Members of the audi- ence were also invited to donate their used instruments to the music department. It was a fantastic night of fantastic music, school head of music Sarah McNabb says. We hope there will be many more oppor- tunities to have David and other jazz musicians here to share their musi- cianship and talent.
