Deacon Mark Writing 

A Note From Your Deacon:

These past few weeks, I have been participating in a Catholic bible study which I have been very grateful to be involved with.  We have grown in our knowledge of God’s plan of salvation, as told through the scriptures. It has also been inspiring to learn about the lived faith of the group members, a faith that gives life and hope.

This is what we celebrate this Easter.  Life and renewed hope!  Jesus Christ is victor over sin and death.  The stone has been rolled away and the tomb is empty.  Let us recall what the angel told Mary Magdalene, Mary, the mother and James, and Salome, as they brought spices to anoint the body of Jesus.  The angel said to them, “Do not be amazed!  You seek Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified.  He has been raised; he is not here (Mark 16:6).”  

We need to follow Jesus, who has been raised and is alive! We must not remain in empty tombs.   May our faith, hope and love truly deepen this Easter,   through the grace and power of our Resurrected Lord!  He has truly risen!  Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

“Resurrection- The Easter Story” by Ernestine Northover 

They slept, who should have guarded, 
And watched over his tomb, 
But he 'rose up' and none did see
His rebirth from this womb, 
His spirit graced the garden, 
His final act was done, 
He was 'The Resurrection'
His victory had been won

In His Mercy,

Deacon Mark

The Mass – A slice at a time

Likewise it is also for the Priest, in the exercise of this office of presiding over the gathered assembly, to offer certain explanations that are foresee in the rite itself. Where this is laid down by the rubrics, the celebrant is permitted to adapt them somewhat so that they correspond to the capacity for understanding of those participating. However, the Priest should always take care to keep to the sense of the explanatory text given in the Missal and to express it in just a few words.

 Faith Formation Update

On Wednesday the Faith Formation students prayed the Stations of the Cross. We read and discussed the Easter Sunday gospel and what it might have felt like to be a disciple of Jesus at that time. Afterwards the children enjoyed coloring eggs and weaving crosses out of the palms from last Sunday.  Thank you to Anne and Andy Sulskis for donating the eggs and materials and volunteering their time to help the students.  There is no class next week.  We meet next on April 11th.  Have a blessed Easter.


Encounter The Risen Christ   

We prayed, fasted and gave alms – and now we celebrate Easter joy! Our Lenten journey with CRS Rice Bowl ends as we encounter our Risen Lord.  We reflect on our brothers and sisters we have walked with, and we commit to bringing Easter joy to each person we meet in our daily lives.  Don’t forget to turn in your rice bowls to Parish Office or in the collection basket.   Checks can be made out to the parish. Please put rice bowl in the memo line. Thank you!

Building & Grounds

There will be a second collection next weekend for Building & Grounds.  Please be generous.  

Legend of the Dogwood

There is a legend that at the time of the Crucifixion the dogwood had been the size of the oak and other forest trees. So firm and strong was the tree that it was chosen as the timber for the cross. To be used thus for such a cruel purpose greatly distressed the tree, and Jesus, nailed upon it, sensed this, and in his suffering said to it: Because of your regret and pity for My suffering, never again shall the dogwood tree grow large enough to be used for a cross. 

Henceforth it shall be slender and bent and twisted and its blossoms shall be in the form of a cross: two long and two short petals. And in the center of the outer edge of each petal there will be nail prints, brown with rust and stained with red, and in the center of the flower will be a crown of thorns, and all who see it will remember.
