As we continue on in this Easter Season, here are some thoughts to consider:

If Easter has touched your heart, accept the challenge to become what you receive. Consider strengthening your own faith life by attending one or more evenings of our Parish Mission, May 14, 15, and 16. If our faith is not strong, how can we share our faith with anyone? Accept the challenge to become what you receive.

Father William Garrott, O.P., will offer three evenings of reflection, song, and preaching. For those who wish, the rosary will be recited at 6:40 PM, and each evening will begin at 7:00 PM.

Monday evening’s preaching focuses on the unconditional love of the Father and concludes with an invitation to anyone, especially families (intact, broken, troubled, struggling, separated by distance, etc.) to receive a special blessing with the Oil of St. Joseph from the Oratory of St. Joseph in Montreal. Tuesday evening’s preaching focuses on the remedy the Father provides for us in His Son Jesus Who sets us free from sin, enables us to forgive and gives meaning to our suffering. The evening concludes with an invitation for those in need of healing (physical, emotional, spiritual) to adore our Eucharistic Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Wednesday evening’s preaching focuses on the power of the Holy Spirit which enables us to live the Christian life and propels us to be witnesses of Jesus Christ in the world. The evening concludes with a sending forth blessing utilizing a first class relic of St. John Paul II taken from his blood-soaked sash from the day he was shot. All three evenings will be spiritual, uplifting, and worth your time. I hope you can join us on one or all three evenings. Put these in your calendar now.
