"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad!"  HAPPY EASTER!

+Following all Masses May 18 & 19 you are invited to speak to the members of the committee searching for our new Pastoral Associate.  Please consider what essential qualities are needed in this person and what area of parish programming might need to change or grow.

+ At all Masses May 18 & 19 the Peace & Justice Committee will be asking you to take part in the annual Bread for the World Offering of Letters.  Please allow a few moments after Mass to sign a letter to your elective representative to support legislation which will help the least among us.

+ Just a note: the shipping containers and equipment  you may see in the parking lot are part of the project to install new windows and an elevator in the school.  Please do not park near these on weekdays.  Thank you!
