My Friends:

Happy Palm Sunday!

Every Holy Week, I feel impelled to remind you of the words of 1Peter 5:8, “Be sober and vigilant. Your opponent, the devil, is prowling like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, steadfast in faith…” As we enter more deeply into the Passion of Our Lord during this most sacred week, I assure you, the devil works overtime to lead you astray in the most subtle of ways! TRUST ME!

The church relies heavily upon your increased offering at Easter and Christmas. I humbly ask that you consider the times and the challenges both spiritual and temporal. Please be extra generous. Extra envelopes for flowers and Easter are in both lobbies. Please be sure to complete the information on the front of each envelope.

Please join us for the Sacred Triduum and Easter Sunday! See the bulletin for the schedule of liturgies this week. There are extra copies of the schedule in the lobby.

Know that I will be praying for you ever more deeply throughout this week. Pray for me as well. God bless!

Loving you always,

Fr. Peter
