A Family Perspective...Look at all the running on the first Easter as Mary, John and Peter searched for Jesus. Easter announces we don’t need to run around to find the Lord. He is discovered in sacrificial love of parents, in moments of forgiveness, in laughter and love shared, in a comforting hug and meal shared together. The risen Lord is with us. Alleluia.

Stewardship Message...Alleluia! Christ is risen and is victorious over sin and death! We are good stewards of our faith if, like St. Paul, we share this good news whenever and wherever we can.
