Message from Father Rick

                                                                                    April, 2015

Happy Easter everyone!
 
After the long and arduous winter, we joyfully welcome the arrival of spring and the holy season of Easter.  We are an Easter people - it defines and directs us.  
 
In one of his Easter messages, Pope Francis shared with the world the meaning of Easter to the Christian faithful.  
 
This is the culmination of the Gospel, it is the Good News par excellence: Jesus, who was crucified, is risen! This event is the basis of our faith and our hope. If Christ were not raised, Christianity would lose its very meaning; the whole mission of the Church would lose its impulse, for this is the point from which it first set out and continues to set out ever anew. The message which Christians bring to the world is this: Jesus, Love incarnate, died on the cross for our sins, but God the Father raised him and made him the Lord of life and death. In Jesus, love has triumphed over hatred, mercy over sinfulness, goodness over evil, truth over falsehood, life over death.

That is why we tell everyone: "Come and see!" 
 
I hope that your Lenten journey has prepared you to welcome Easter with open hearts and minds. Let’s further pray that the gratitude, love and mission we all feel will play out in Christian action.   
 
Thank you for all that you do for His Church and our worshipping community.  You are a blessing to me.
 
Peace,
Fr. Rick
