From Fr. Dennis’ Desk

The Lord is Risen!! Be Embraced by Love and Life

We behold the Mystery!!  We stand before the tomb emptied by God’s Love!  He is no longer here – he has been raised!  Why do you search for the Living One among the dead!!??  Each one of us is a beneficiary of this new life – we receive a share in the life won for us by Christ!  In our Baptism, we become united with Jesus Christ, a new creation in Christ; our renewal of our Baptismal promises on Easter Day gives us a chance to reflect deeply on this reality.

If you joining us today as a visitor, you are most welcome;  if you are a member of our parish family who for whatever reason no longer practices your faith regularly, or for someone who has drifted from the Sacraments, you are invited to join us on a regular basis.  This wonderful parish family offers a spiritual home where you can meet Christ Jesus and grow in His Love.  If you are someone who has not completed your Catholic Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation, we have processes to help you on your faith journey and attain these Sacraments.

Perhaps you are estranged from the Church due to your marital status or something that has happened in your past (perhaps anger issues or disillusionment in the Church),  please come home.  Make this the last Easter you are away and the first Easter you are truly home.

In my own name, and on behalf of Deacon Mike and Deacon Steve, I wish you a happy and holy Easter Day and Easter season.  Your intentions will be remembered in a special way at Mass on Easter Day.

He is truly Risen,

Fr. Dennis J. Vincenzo
