Happy Easter
"Alleluia! Christ is risen from the dead!”
The glorious Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ makes all things new! Because we are baptized into His Body, we, the Church, also participate in His Passion, Death, Entombment, and Resurrection. And so we can say that we live truly Christ’s life! This is the Good News which feeds us, sustains us, and equips us to love and praise God our Almighty Father, now and forever. We can truly say through the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, that the whole Church, lives from the Eucharist. We were born from the Eucharist. Christ makes His Sacrifice present in time and we can only fall to our knees and silently adore this supreme mystery of faith. As people of the Resurrection we touch on the "apostolicity of the Eucharist." The Sacrament of the Eucharist -- like the Sacrament of Reconciliation -- intimately linked to the Death and Resurrection of our Lord, was entrusted by Christ to the Apostles and has been passed down by them and their successors in every generation.

“And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and ~St. Augustine there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here”
We proclaim in intimate dialogue to our Lord: “Dying You destroyed our death. Rising You restored our life. Lord Jesus come in glory." Let us strive all the more to embrace Christ’s Risen Love for us.

Happy Easter and God Bless You.

Felices Pascuas
"¡Aleluya! ¡Cristo ha resucitado de la muerte!"
La gloriosa Resurrección de nuestro Señor Jesucristo hace nuevas todas las cosas! Debido a que somos bautizados en su cuerpo, nosotros, la Iglesia, también participamos en su Pasión, Muerte, Entierro y Resurrección. Y así podemos decir que vivimos realmente la vida de Cristo! Esta es la Buena Noticia que nos alimenta, nos sostiene y nos capacita para amar y alabar a Dios nuestro Padre todopoderoso, ahora y siempre. Podemos decir a través de la muerte y resurrección de Jesús, que toda la Iglesia, vive de la Eucaristía. Hemos nacido de la Eucaristía. Cristo se hace presente su sacrificio en el tiempo y podemos caer de rodillas y adorarle en silencio el gran misterio de la fe. Como el pueblo de la Resurrección nos toca en la apostolicidad de la Eucaristía". El Sacramento de la Eucaristía - y el Sacramento de la Reconciliación están - íntimamente ligados a la Muerte y Resurrección de nuestro Señor, estos fueron confiados por Cristo a los Apóstoles y han sido transmitidos por ellos y sus sucesores en cada generación. "Y Él se partió de nuestra vista para que podríamos volver a nuestro corazón, y allí encontrarle. Ya que Él se partió, y ¡mirad! Aquí está" ~San Agustín Proclamamos en el diálogo íntimo con el Señor: "Anunciamos Tu Muerte, Proclamamos Tu Resurrección. ¡Ven, Señor Jesús!" Por lo tanto; Luchemos más para poder abrazar a Cristo Resucitado, en el amor por nosotros.

¡Felices Pascuas y Que Dios Te Bendiga!

Divine Mercy Sunday
Divine Mercy Sunday is the Sunday after Easter, April 7th. We will celebrate it with a service in the Chapel at 3PM. The message and devotion to Jesus as The Divine Mercy, is based on the writings of Saint Faustina Kowalska, an uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God’s mercy. Even before her death in 1938, the devotion to The Divine Mercy had begun to spread On June 29, 2002, the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See promulgated a decree creating new indulgences that may be gained by the faithful in connection with the celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday. This decree grants a plenary indulgence to those who comply with all the conditions established, and a partial indulgence to those who incompletely fulfill the conditions. It is allowed for one to go to Confession up to 20 days, before or after Divine Mercy Sunday.

Christian Service Salute!
As a Parish Community, we express our deepest gratitude for God’s Gift of Christian Service to us as we salute:
