Often when asked, “Where do you go to school?” we simply answer, “St Peter’s”. So most people would think, “Oh, a private school” but is it only that?

So to bore you with the facts that are already at your fingertips is a waste. You can find the meaning and a blow-by-blow description of each moment of the Easter Story on the net. Some of it is a morbid fascination to find out how gruesome the facts actually are or how it was possible that one man endured so much.
