Raise Your Spirits from the Doldrums of Winter

Dear Parishioners,

I’m not sure spring is coming to us this year. I just heard that we might have some snow showers today, and the temperature is only 35 degrees. However, Easter will definitely come, and along with it, a renewed faith and hope in God. The Resurrection of Jesus is a sure sign of God’s triumph over sin and evil. Death and the devil don’t have the last word about the world in which we live.

If you want to raise your spirits from the doldrums of this severe winter, come to our Holy Week services, Tenebrae on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m., but especially Holy Thursday at 7:00 p.m., Good Friday at 3:00 p.m., and the Easter Vigil at 8:00 p.m. On Easter Sunday, the Masses will be at 8:00, 10:00 and 11:30 a.m. May this Holy Week be one of spiritual enrichment and joy for you and your family.

God Bless,
Father Carl

“Respect and take care of nature. Environmental
degradation is one of the biggest challenges we have. I
think a question that we’re not asking ourselves is: ‘Isn’t
humanity committing suicide with this indiscriminate
and tyrannical use of nature?’”
