The Youth Group will take down the Christmas decoration in the church during religion this Wednesday, January 7th. There will be pizza afterwards, so it will probably be after 8:00 before we finish. The more hands we have to help - the faster it will go so please show up to help. Thank You.
The glory of the Lord has shone upon us, and shall ever be manifest among us, until the day of his return. Through the rhythms of times and seasons, let us celebrate the mysteries of salvation.
Let us recall the year’s culmination, the Easter Triduum of the Lord: his last supper, his crucifixion, his burial, and his rising, celebrated between the evening of the second day of April and the evening of the fifth day of April.
Each Easter as on each Sunday, the Holy Church makes present the great and saving deed by which Christ has forever conquered sin and death.
From Easter are reckoned all the days we keep holy.
Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, will occur on the eighteenth day of February.
The Ascension of the Lord will be commemorated on the fourteenth day of May.
Pentecost, the joyful conclusion of the season of Easter, will be celebrated on the twenty-fourth day of May.
And this year the First Sunday of Advent will be on the twenty-ninth day of November.
Likewise the pilgrim Church proclaims the Passover of Christ in the feasts of the Holy Mother of God, in the feasts of the Apostles and Saints, and in the commemoration of the faithful departed.
To Jesus Christ, who was who is, and who is to come, Lord of time and history, be endless praise, for ever and ever. Amen.
