My Co-disciples on the way, greetings of Peace 

Palm or Passion Sunday commemorates our Lord’s entrance into Jerusalem, the place of his passion and death, but also of his resurrection. Jesus loves the city very much, but Jerusalem will put him to death. As He enters the city on a donkey, the crowds greet him as a king. But this same crowd will taunt and despise him as he will be hang on the cross. Today, as we too, wave our palms to welcome Christ into our lives, hopefully we remember what his entrance to Jerusalem means for us; that he bravely faced the prospect of death for love of us, for our sake. The people, by shouting “Blessed is he who comes in the name of he Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is coming!” are proclaiming Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah (Anointed One). 

Our weekend theme is: Spread their cloaks. This spreading of things aside from cloaks before Him was the regular kind of treatment offered to important personages and was a spontaneous expression of appreciation and respect. Now applying that to our own time to be intimately connected to Him our only Savior, what we need to lay down as he enters our life to be truly his disciples on the way?


Father Joel, M.F.

The Mass – A slice at a time

The Prayers and Other Parts Pertaining to the Priest


Among those things assigned to the Priest, the prime place is occupied by the Eucharistic Prayer, which is the high point of the whole celebration. Next are the orations, that is to say, the Collect, the Prayer over the offerings, and the Prayer after Communion. These prayers are addressed to God by the Priest who presides over the assembly in the person of Christ, in the name of the entire holy people and of all present. Hence they are rightly called the “presidential prayers.


Faith Formation Update

This week Faith Formation discussed Palm Sunday and Holy week. We watched part of the Son of God movie showing Jesus entering Jerusalem heading to the temple and people throwing and waving the palms.  Next week we will spend the last 25 minutes of class coloring eggs.  Any child who wishes to join us please come to the hall by 6:30pm and bring your own basket. 

March 28 Class – Color Easter Eggs 

April 4 No Class – Easter Break

Encounter Our Neighbors  

We encounter Jesus this week in Jerusalem, a community he knew well. We prayerfully enter our own communities too, encountering those who are hungry and thirsty, those who need our help. How does our Lenten journey motivate us to serve those we meet in our daily lives? Visit to learn more. 

Don’t forget to fill your rice bowls and return them to church by Easter Sunday. Checks can be made out to the parish. Please put rice bowl in the memo line. Thank you!

Bishop’s Appeal- Youth Ministry

Young adults in today’s world find life difficult and overwhelming.  Derrick Diedrich attended his first youth 

conference and discovered that Jesus was there to help him stay on the right path. “Everybody was praising and loving Jesus and I just fell in love with the electricity.  It’s like the Holy Spirit was running everything and it was just beautiful,” said Derrick. Derrick chose to follow Jesus and share his faith with other young adults.  He credits his transformation to many people including Maria Schuette of the diocesan Education Department. Maria supports parish youth ministry and religious education programs.  Through these ministries, our youth encounter Christ and see the beauty of a church that is full of mercy and love.  When you support the Bishop’s Appeal, you support young people like Derrick.  You also train parish leaders like deacons, pastoral associates and religious educators. To make a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal contact your parish, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at, or call Tammy toll-free at 877-500-3580 ext. 8123.

Look! It’s Him

Up on tiptoes, necks arched for a better view, we press forward in the crowd today to see our Savior, the humble King of peace as He enters the city gates. Suddenly through waving palms His flickering image becomes piercingly clear. This divine mortal, this Jesus is almost near enough to touch. Hearts stirred with longing to close even this small separation, our voices break out in welcoming song. Hosanna! Hosanna! Blessed is He who has come!
