Email Bulletin for Thursday March 28, 2024


 We would like to wish all of our parishioners a very happy and blessed Easter. May the celebration of the Easter Liturgy deepen our faith that Jesus is truly risen, and having conquered death, invites us to share in his risen life.

It is good news that every Good Friday in our lives can be transformed into an Easter Sunday. No pain, no sorrow, not even death itself, need defeat us: all is made new in the risen Christ.

May we all receive a deeper share in his gift of peace: “Peace be with you” the Risen Lord says to each of us.

Again, a very happy and blessed Easter to each of you, and to your families.

Fr. Chris and Fr. Tomasz
