April

The month of April is dedicated to The Holy Spirit. The first four days of the month fall during the season of Lent which is represented by the liturgical color purple — a symbol of penance, mortification and the sorrow of a contrite heart. The rest of April falls in the Easter season in which white, the color of light, a symbol of joy, purity, and innocence, is the liturgical color.

As our Lenten journey comes to a close we prepare to follow Christ all the way to the cross and to witness His glorious Resurrection. Hopefully we have sacrificed and prayed so that we are now able to more fully reap the fruits of a well spent Lent. After our solemn commemoration of the last days and death of Our Lord we will spend the remainder of the month of April celebrating. As Spring breaks forth even nature will join us as buds and blooms begin to surface and we spend this month basking in the joy of the Resurrection. We continue throughout the entire month our cry, "Christ is risen, Christ is truly risen."

Easter Sunday


Christ our Passover has been sacrificed, alleluia; therefore let us keep the feast with the unleavened bread of purity and truth, alleluia, alleluia.


Easter is a day for us to discover and celebrate this new and living presence. How is Christ with us today? Perhaps, the central experience is the recovery of hope. We know that evil is still found around us. The good still often get crucified. Prejudice, poverty and injustice are always near. Yet, among them, we also find instances of acceptance, sharing and renewal. Easter means that God’s love is continually being reborn within around us. Looking back at our Lenten journey, we may not have attained all that we hoped for. As with New Year’s Resolutions, we often fall short. Yet, it is always worth trying. We may not climb the highest mountains, but we can overcome some of the smaller hills that blacked out horizon. God lives within us, a constant source of uplift and hope.
