My dearest friends in Christ!
"I have seen the Lord!"
My heart is full of gratitude and joy as we celebrate Easter. Easter reminds us that we are Easter people, that we are people of the resurrection. Our God is alive, not dead, as most people think and believe. Jesus’ resurrection brings hope that there is another kind of life beyond death. As the Exsultet (Easter Vigil song proclamation before the Paschal Candle) reminds us – This is the night when Christ broke the prison bars of death and rose victorious from the underworld. Our birth would have been no gain, had we not been redeemed.
In the spirit of thanksgiving, join me in thanking all these parishioners who’s been helping our parish in organizing all the events during this time of pandemic. Their commitment and dedication have made all our parish events possible and a reality:
