Dear Parish Family,
On behalf of our parish staff, I would like to wish you and your loved ones a very blessed Easter. Lent is over. Alleluias resound throughout the Christian world as we celebrate the greatest Solemnity of the Church’s liturgical year. Churches are decorated with lilies and colorful flowers that express new life and the blessings that come from God. Most importantly, we reaffirm our faith in the one, true God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and we believe in the Resurrection of the dead. Christ Jesus has opened the gates of heaven to us by His life, death and resurrection. It is indeed appropriate to praise the Lord and sing “Alleluia!”
Whether you are of long-time member our parish family or are visiting for the first time, please know that you are always most welcome here. I pray that you and your loved ones will come to more deeply experience the love of God here in this community of faith.
May God bless you abundantly throughout this Easter season.
Wishing you peace and all that is good.
Fr. Dan Redmond
