Thanks to the group leaders

Easter action
The group leaders of our procession groups are busy preparing. This in circumstances we are not used to. Phone, email, whatsApp, teams, zoom and other types of digital contacts are no longer foreign to them. The Coronation Committee greatly appreciates this.
