Father Virgil's Message
After the forty days of Lent and the Triduum we now celebrate Easter – the day that Christ rose from the dead. This rising from the dead is our greatest source of hope for our own resurrection from the dead so that we too can be with God for all eternity.
What is there to say? Christ is Risen! ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA!!! May the peace and the love of Jesus Christ be with you today and throughout the coming year.
I want to thank all of the people who made this Lent, Holy Week and Easter such marvelous celebrations. It would be great to name each of you – but that would be a very challenging task since there are very visible things that are accomplished and there equally so many things that happen behind the scenes.
I thank all the people that organized and decorated the churches. I thank all the musicians and song leaders for sharing their time and talent with our communities. I thank all of the ministers of the Liturgies, the Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers & Greeters, Servers and Sacristans. Your sharing of your time and talent will be rewarded by God a hundredfold.
I thank all who attended and prayed with us during this time…your presence is a true profession of faith. I invite all of you to continue to worship with us on a regular basis. The community that prays together is also the community that supports each other on our journey of faith.
Happy Easter to all!!
to Nichols Yager and the entire Faith community as we celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation at the Easter Vigil. We will continue to support you on your journey of faith. A special thank you to Melissa Fox, Faith Formation Director at St. Marcus, for her work in the R.C.I.A. program.
