HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!

May the risen Lord extend to you and your families His peace and His blessings. As we celebrate the feast of new life, I pray that each of us be renewed in our faith and commitment to our Lord Jesus Christ. In Him and through Him we find our joy and strength.

A warm welcome to those visitors with us today for Mass and to family members home for Easter!

Sincere thanks to all who have helped us observe Holy Week and celebrate Easter. Our parish community is blessed to have so many wonderful members who give of themselves in service. A special word of thanks to the priests who help us, to the Altar Society, the Liturgy Committee, all the Liturgical Ministers, the eighth grade students of our school, Sister Joan Maga, the choirs, the Youth Ministry Group, the Knights of Columbus, and all who have helped to prepare and decorate the church for Easter. We are indebted to you!

My thanks also to those who have been generous in their financial support. May God bless you.

A VERY HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!

Holy Week begins

Today we begin Holy Week, as Christians have done for many centuries.

We will commemorate the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus. I invite you to participate in the sacred liturgies of this week. May it be a week of grace for all of us.

On Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. you will have a special opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation. Extra priests will be here for individual confessions.

On Holy Saturday night at the vigil and first Mass of Easter, a number of adults will receive one or all of the sacraments of initiation into the church, that is baptism, eucharist and confirmation.

Come and celebrate with us!
