A practical resource for young people intended to help them prepare for Easter in a fresh, enjoyable and meaningful way. The material is flexible enough to be used with a broad spectrum of ages within a parish community, schools or families.
I was born in Zambia to parents, ‘pioneers’ of their time, who in 1955 bravely chose to leave the family farm in Northern Ireland to begin married life on the other side of the world, growing tobacco in Africa. Due to my mother’s ill health, my family returned to Northern Ireland when I was almost three years old, and I experienced growing up during ‘the troubles’. My childhood was immersed in marvellous tales of wildest Africa, and the adventures and challenges of living there at that time.
