We are blessed!

Dear Friends, Our Holy Week and Easter celebrations were truly awesome, prayerful, inspiring and blessed. There was a special grace this year during the Triduum and Easter. Thanks be to God! My heartfelt gratitude to everyone who worked so diligently to make the Church and the celebrations so very special. Thanks to Father Buck, our Deacons, all our parish staff, our volunteer weekly cleaners, our flower decorators, our Sacristans and other volunteers who helped on Holy Saturday to clean and prepare the Church and our liturgical items for Easter, our Altar Servers and Assistant Masters of Ceremonies, Elizabeth Calabro, our Lectors and Cantors, our choirs (Adult and Children), our organist

Happy Easter!

Dear Friends, “The Lord is truly risen, alleluia. To Him be glory and power for all the ages of eternity, alleluia, alleluia.” These words, the Entrance Antiphon for Easter Mass, announce the glory and meaning of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

It was a practice that faded for a while

Lent Observances

Dear Friends, Next Sunday is Palm Sunday! Palms will be blessed and distributed at all the weekend Masses. Palm Sunday begins our Holy Week, a most pivotal and important week of Faith celebrations that we call the Sacred Triduum ~ Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil and Easter. These sacred celebrations are most beautiful and moving. I hope that you and your families will be present for them all.
