A very 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 berenewed 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 Altar Servers, the eighth grade students of our school, Sister Joan Maga, the choirs, the youth ministry group, Martin Villa, 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.

St. Bernard School will have a new principal for the coming school year. She is Margaret Samaniego. She has an excellent background in Catholic education and for the past four years has worked at the Catholic Schools Department of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, where she has been coordinator of curricular programs.

Sister Joan Maga, Ms. Krajewski, Ms. Osuch, and Ms. Cortes have informed me that they will not be returning to the faculty next year. The Department of Catholic Schools and Mrs. Samaniego are currently accepting applications for teaching positions at St. Bernard School for the coming year. Applications can be made at www.archdiocese.la/jobs. I expect that we will have at least one male teacher on the faculty for the coming school year. Registration of new students is currently being taken. Some partial scholarships are available for families who qualify. Investing in the education of your children or grandchildren at St. Bernard School will give them an advantage for life.

A VERY HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!
