With the sun shining and the snow almost completely melted, Easter Sunday morning provided a glorious new beginning!
In his homily, Fr. Vincent emphasized that Easter is about living an attitude of joy with one another. He told the story of a twelve year-old-boy who, upon giving his mom a birthday gift, said, "I love you. Thank you for being my mom."
In reply, his mother said, "It is my pleasure."
In the same way, Fr. Vincent said he can image our Lord God looking down upon us this Easter and saying, "It is a pleasure."
The morning celebrations included the lighting of candles, the blessing of the congregation by Fr. Gabriel, the baptism of Isaac and Lily Marie, and the recognition of the children who continue to donate to the Holy Childhood Fund.
On behalf of Fr. Gabriel and Fr. Paolus, Fr. Vincent wishes everyone a Happy Easter and urges each and every one of us to know that they are with us, and God is with us.
