Lighting the Easter candle at out Easter Vigil Saturday night

Pastor's Thoughts

For April 20, 2019

Happy Easter! We have made it through lent. Of course, that is not the main point of the celebration of Easter. It is more about how we have grown closer to the Lord through the disciplines of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. By letting go of those things that might hold us back from fully giving ourselves to Jesus, we are able to share more fully in the life of Jesus. We die to our selfishness and rise to a more invested life in God. That is what every Easter should be about. I hope that you were able to grow in the life of Jesus during this Lenten season. I pray that you are filled with the life of the Risen Lord. Continue to pray. Continue to turn away from anything that draws you away from God. May this Easter Season be for you a celebration of your growing love of the Lord and your rising to a deeper relationship with God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Easter Peace and Joy to you!

...Fr. Dick
