This Week's message from Father Steve...


Dear Family,

Happy Easter!  Alleluia!

It is hard to believe that it was five weeks ago that we gathered for Easter Sunday, the beginning of our 50 day Easter Season! This coming Thursday, the 25th, is the Solemnity of the Ascension of Jesus into heaven (a Holy Day of Obligation!!!!). There are many Mass options so you should be able to find a time to attend Mass that fits your busy schedule.

This past Saturday we hosted our first Neighbors in Need Dinner. It was a success! The people who attended were so grateful and the volunteers made it so special for everyone! THANKS to all who had a hand in bringing this vision to life...the volunteers and especially the Knights of Columbus and our Christian Service Ministry who coordinated the event!! We will be hosting these dinners every second Tuesday of the month.

Today in our Gospel reading Jesus reveals the Third Person of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit (the Advocate) Whom the Father will send among the people. The Holy Spirit continues to dwell among us to the present day and He will dwell with us until the end of time. The Spirit helps us to understand the mystery of God working in our lives. The Holy Spirit is here to enlighten us, to comfort and to guide. He brings spiritual gifts that He gives to us, each different, each unique, each special. These gifts are to be used in God's name for the good of others. What gifts do you have? What is God asking of you? Something to pray about...

He Is Risen!!! Alleluia!!!

Praised Be Jesus Christ...Now and Forever!!
