My Dear Friends and Parish Family in Christ,
I wish you all a Blessed Easter.
May the Glory of Jesus’ Resurrection
Enrich your life with Love, Joy and Peace.
Be assured that you and all those you love
will be remembered in the
Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on Easter and always.
THANK YOU: Our thanks and appreciation to all those individuals who helped make our Holy Week and Easter Masses so meaningful: to our musicians and choir, lectors, altar servers, ushers, and Eucharistic Ministers, to our sacristans, to those parishioners who purchased lilies in honor and in memory of their loved ones. Please see the flyer for a complete listing of flower donations.
THANK YOU: Many thanks for your generous donations to the special collection taken up on Good Friday which supported the Holy Land.
RICE BOWL: Rice Bowls can be placed in the collection basket on the weekend after Easter, April 11th & 12th.
SYMPATHY: Please remember in your prayers the soul and family of James Nors who went to his eternal rest. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen
