The Lord is truly risen, Alleluia! To Him be glory and power for all the ages of eternity, alleluia, allelulia! On behalf of the parish and school staff, a happy, blessed, and joyous Easter to you. Special congratulations to Monte Sitton and Chris Nobbe who received Baptism, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation at the Easter Vigil. Also, a special congratulations to Jessica Berkemeier, Sally Farley, Evelyn Sammons and Marcy Westphal, who received First Holy Communion and Confirmation at the Easter Vigil. They have all spent the last year praying and studying about entry into Christ’s Church. They are a true blessing to our community. Their faithfulness should inspire each of us to live more fervently for Christ. Let us keep them in prayer as they enter more deeply into parish life and on-going Christian discipleship.
All six of our neophytes were helped to the Church by the witness of Catholic friends and family they know. As Catholic Christians, we should be aware of the importance of our public witness to Christ, risen from the dead. It must be a joyous witness, a witness that will invite others to seek after what we have already found in the person of Jesus Christ. If you feel Christ calling you, a family member, or a friend to join the Catholic Church, please contact me to see how I can help.
Next Sunday is known as Divine Mercy Sunday. To revel in God’s infinite Mercy, St Mary’s will be hosting a Holy Hour of Adoration and Benediction on Sunday, April 12, from 2p-3p. Fr Gries will be available for confessions during this time. We will conclude with a recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet (texts will be provided) and Benediction. Please prayerfully consider putting this on your calendar to come and partake in Christ’s infinite Mercy, won for us by His Paschal Mystery in the Cross and Resurrection. And once again, Happy and Blessed Easter to you all. St Mary, Mother of the Risen Lord, pray for us. ~ Fr. Gries
