Our Parish

Dear Friends,

     Lent and Easter was a great time of growth for our parish.  Huge crowds came for ashes on Ash Wednesday when Lent began.  Morning Masses during Lent had an uptick in the numbers attending.  oly Week was powerful.  The sign and symbols of the Triduum, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday spoke deeply to us of the Lord’s love for us.

     Much gratitude is due to our musicians, our RCIA team, our environmental decorators, our ushers, our Eucharistic ministers, our lectors and our altar servers.  We distributed almost two thousand copies of the book on “Forgiveness”.  When you finish your copy, pass it to a friend.  We all need to learn to be more forgiving.  Moreover, with forgiveness comes healing and with healing, comes peace – the Peace of the Lord Jesus.

     We have now entered the Easter Season, fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost.  This is to be a very joyous liturgical season.  The new Paschal Candle, a symbol of the presence of the Risen Christ among the people of God, remains near the ambo until Pentecost when it will be placed by the baptismal font. 

     First Communion will be celebrated on the first two weekends of May, appropriately during the Easter Season.  Families get to choose which Mass they like so you will likely see some children at most of the weekend Masses.

     As in years past, the celebration of the Ascension of our Lord, forty days after Easter, will be transferred from Thursday to the following Sunday that will be May 28.  Therefore, you can see that these fifty days of the Easter Season have many events to foster our joy that He is indeed Risen.  Alleluia.

A blessed Easter season to one and all,
Father McNamara
