Parish Website:



The Dutch Christian, Corrie Ten Boom (1892-1983), who famously sheltered Jews in her watch shop in Haarlem before being taken to Ravensbrück concentration camp, had good reason to consider the problem of evil. Her sister Betsie, who died there, had nevertheless maintained that ‘there is no pit so deep that God is not deeper still’. As a little girl, Corrie’s father once explained to her that just as he gave little Corrie her train ticket immediately before departure, so too would her Father in Heaven give her the strength needed to cope with a loved one’s death when the time came. – Intercom Magazine.
