Serving God and His People at Mass - Altar Server Training for Grades 3-8

Serving God isn't just for adults, we are all called to serve God and his people.  One of the most important places to do that is during the Saturday evening/Sunday liturgy.  We are looking for boys and girls in Grade 3 and up to be Altar Servers.  
We will have a training session on Saturday, April 21 at 10am in the Church.  During this training session, Deacon Ron will lead a train session that will walk the young people through all of the duties and responsibilities of being an altar server.   Once they are trained, they will be able to serve at any of the Masses that they attend. If you are interested, please email Mrs. Marge Schreiber - with the name of your son or daughter, their grade, a contact number, and what Mass you normally attend.

Happy Easter!

We hope that you and your family had a very blessed and joyful Easter!!!  In case you were unable to join us for the Triduum or Easter Sunday, we thought that we would share some highlights with you.

Holy Thursday

Fr. Tom washes the feet of 12 members of our Church as a
remembrance of Christ washing the feet of the disciples at the Last Supper.

The Altar of Repose where the Holy Eucharist is placed after the Eucharistic procession on Holy Thursday. Many people visited our church that evening as is tradition.
Good Friday

High School members of our parish recreate and led a reflection of the Stations of the Cross.  The Living Stations of the Cross were accompanied by the singing talents of our Treble Choir led by Bruce Mauro.

Holy Saturday - Easter Vigil

Fr. Rich lights the Paschal Candle from the new fire outside of the church. 
The candle was then carried in to the darkened church and the Light of Christ was distributed to all in attendance.

Easter Sunday

Holy Week & Easter Schedule

Holy Week is my favorite time of the Church year.  It is a week that truly hits all of our senses. 
Holy Thursday enlivens our senses of smell and taste as we celebrate the Last Supper.  Incense is used to sanctify the altar and the bread and wine at Mass and we receive the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus in the Eucharist.
Good Friday gives the opportunity to venerate and touch the wood of cross on which hung our salvation.
Holy Saturday brings us from darkness into light as we light our individual candles from the Paschal Candle as it enters the Church. 
Finally, the joy of Easter Sunday can be heard in the shouts of Alleluia and the beautiful music that proclaims Christ's victory over sin and death.
We invite you to be with us on this journey as we celebrate the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
