FROM THE PASTOR
I certainly want to wish all of you a most Blessed and Happy Easter! I pray that the Lord’s resurrection will fill all of our hearts with profound joy, and help us all to have a deeper appreciation and understanding of His great and infinite love for all of us. May we, throughout this Easter season, resolve to live out in our own lives this Love we have received.
Please remember that this coming Friday is a “first” Friday, and we will again have Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament after the noon Mass, with Adoration during the afternoon, concluding with Rosary, Evening prayer, and Benediction, all beginning at 5:00 PM. Please come and spend some time with the Lord this Friday!
to all of those who have participated this year in the RCIA program. They are being received into the Catholic
Church at the Easter Vigil
May God bless and be with all of you as we celebrate the resurrection of His Son!
Sincerely in the Lord,
Youth 2000: Join us for the 8th annual
