May 2022 Open Day at Minto Gardens Last month we hosted an open day to welcome the community into the grounds of Minto Gardens for the first time: it was a great opportunity for retirees looking to plan a comfortable and community-oriented retirement lifestyle. We had over 100 people in attendance over the day. Those attending got the chance to sit in for a presentation hosted by our wonderful Village Manager, Miriam Williams and learn about our incredible village community. May 2022 Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea “The doctors told me that I had no hope of being cured because my cancer was too advanced. Tumour. Incurable. I was devastated and hopeless. As I lay in my hospital bed questions of life beyond death weighed upon me. Was Jesus physically raised from the dead? How do we know? What if it’s all a big hoax? It‘s one thing living with a delusion but I don’t want to die putting all my hope in that delusion. It was scary to ask such brutally frank questions about my own death but my diagnosis left me no time for soft pedalling or procrastination. This was death and life stuff. There was no point pretending; I had to be sure.” April 2022 The First Easter @ Minto Gardens It’s the first Easter at Minto Gardens.

As we reflect on the meaning of Easter, we remembered the occasion of the very first Easter through various ways.
