From the Pastor …

Dear People of God,

Holy Week is upon us.  On Sunday, Palm Sunday, the mood of the service will quickly change from one of adulation and praise to solemnity and reflection.  The Great Three Days will invite us once again into the intimate mysteries of faith – from suffering, death, to resurrection – over Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  And on Easter we celebrate and remember that we are resurrection people.  I hope you will participate as frequently and deeply as your life allows that your Easter joy may be bright and full.

Pr Kern
