"When Christ your life appears, then you too
will appear with him in glory." (Colossians 3:4)
Christ is Risen!
Truly He is Risen!
Dear Parishioners, Visitors and Guests!
We are celebrating the greatest solemnity of the Liturgical Year – the Resurrection of the Lord. This Day marks the be-ginning of 50 Days of Easter Season.
We have prepared to celebrate Easter during forty days of Lent, by prayer, fasting, almsgiving, participation in our Lenten Mission, Confession and devotions of the Passion of our Lord.
Today we celebrate the Lord's victory over death, sin and Satan. We sing a joyful "Alleluia" and praise the Lord for the great work that He has done for us; for giving us hope of our own resurrection, if we will only follow His teachings.
This year we have an extra reason to rejoice during the Easter Season. This is because on the Second Sunday of Easter - Divine Mercy Sunday Pope Francis will officiate the canonization Mass of his two predecessors: John Paul II and John XXIII. It’s a wonderful opportunity to explore the meaning of the lives and teachings of these modern-day spiritual heroes and also grow in our aware-ness of our connection to the Church around the world!
What a great privilege it is to be a member of the Universal Church, the Mystical Body of Christ! Let us rejoice and be glad! May the Risen Lord bless us, strengthen our faith, hope and love, and give us a true peace.
On behalf of Fr. Pawel, Msgr. Stanley, Deacon David and the Parish Staff I wish all of you, your loved ones and visitors a happy and blessed Easter.
