I would like to welcome Shannon Costello, Clayton McLean, Sheila Olan and baby Emily McLean to our parish. Many thanks to Barbara Anne Krampart and Silvio Fernandes for their leadership in the RCIA program, guiding our new parishioners in their faith journey. Thanks to Melinda Mayo for her assistance at the Easter Vigil too!

I hope you enjoyed our Holy Week and Triduum liturgies and Masses and that they were a prayerful and spiritual experience for you. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to prepare for these celebrations and there are many people to thank:  Ministers of the word, Ministers of the Eucharist, Ministers of Welcome, Altar Servers, and those responsible for creating the scheduling, members of the RCIA team and candidates who helped with the feet washing on Holy Thursday, our gift bearers, those who washed the altar cloths, hand towels and purificators for Mass, Anthony and the 9:30 choir and cantors, Sean and the 11:30 choir and cantors, the collection counters, Jennifer Thiele, who made our wonderful palm displays on Palm Sunday and Good Friday and all the ladies who prepared and served at the reception after the Easter Vigil.  Special thanks to James at the Apple Market for the donation of our Easter flowers. Last, but not least, many thanks to all our parishioners, visitors and members of the community who attended our celebrations. It was wonderful to see the church overflowing with people.
