A Few Words from Father Steve

Dear Friends,

Today we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday. This year, we have to show appreciation to many who have shown us divine mercy during this past year. We know many of those providing essential services don't have a social distancing option. They need to come within six feet of others to do their jobs. We want to thank the first responders, all of whom deserve our appreciation and admiration. That includes health care workers such as doctors and nurses, orderlies and therapists, and all hospital personnel who now find themselves on the front lines of this fight against COVID-19. Also deserving of our gratitude are police officers, emergency medical technicians, firefighters and others who continue to respond to calls and medical emergencies. Let us not forget grocery clerks, delivery people and janitorial workers who keep others safe by disinfecting work spaces. I want to thank all of the people who are on the front line of this crisis. Doctors, Nurses, Medical Staff, Police, Fire, Paramedics Grocery Clerks, and Delivery People still have to put on a brave face and deal with this head-on, while putting others safety ahead of theirs. We are at war, but our enemy is not carrying weapons, it's just not visible to the naked eye, and our heroes don't fear it or dread it; they keep pushing. Each of us rely on these folks. Keep them in mind as you do your part and we get through this together.

Mary Magdalene who followed Jesus through the way of the cross, who clung to the foot of the cross on Calvary, who participated in his burial, who was the first to arrive on Easter morning at the tomb, she did not leave. She was not going anywhere. It was then that the Risen Christ appeared to her, to Mary Magdalene, His first official apparition on Easter Sunday. He called her by name, and immediately she threw herself at his feet and clung to his feet, just as she had done at Calvary. Always the posture of the faithful disciple.

Love, Father Steve

DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY
This Sunday, April 11th, we will celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy which was instituted by Saint John Paul II in 2000. The celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday is an opportunity to reflect on the theme of how God’s mercy can overcome sin. The message of mercy is that God loves us – all of us – no matter how great our sins. He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy. Please join us next Sunday to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3:00 pm in the Church.

Each family is asked to contribute $400 dollars. However, what one gives is your choice and no one should give beyond their means. Your envelope may be mailed or returned to the church or to the rectory anytime. You may also make a donation on-line either as a one time payment or over a period of time. I am so grateful to you. Thank you for your faithful support of our parish.
