Sunday, April 4th - Easter Sunday
CHEERS! - A MESSAGE FROM THE
Happy Easter! On behalf of our entire staff here at Holy Spirit, including Fr. Joe and Fr. Tom, I wish you a blessed Easter season. We have experienced a wonderful Lent and now it’s time to celebrate the most important feast on the Christian calendar; the Resurrection of our Lord.
This season is 50 days of rejoicing! It culminates on “our” parish feast day of Pentecost, which will be on Sunday, May 23.
Enjoy this Easter Season! Our weather should be good; hopefully, some of the Covid-restrictions will be lifted; and most importantly, we will celebrate the Easter sacraments of Baptisms, First Communions and Confirmations — plus many weddings! These are all occasions of joy!
Again, a most blessed Easter to you and your family and friends!
Alleluia! Christ is risen! Alleluia!

MOMENT OF THE
On Thursday and Friday of this past week (and continuing tonight and tomorrow) we, as Catholics, celebrate our most holy time of the year, the Triduum, The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ's Paschal Mystery. The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil.

Read the Readings from this Sunday, Palm Sunday
Acts 10:34a, 37-43
; Psalm 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23; Colossians 3:1-4; John 20:1-9
Use the following discussion/reflection questions in your families, with your spouse, your friends, or even as personal journal questions:
1. What do you think Mary of Magdala and the apostles were thinking when they arrived at the empty tomb? Look back at the Gospel. What evidence of Jesus’ Resurrection was left at the tomb?
2. Why do you think Jesus decided to leave an empty tomb as evidence of His Resurrection? Why didn’t He leave something more “showy” everyone would see?
3. God leaves evidence for the miracles He conducts in our lives. Do you have an example of this in your own life or in another story in Scripture?
4. Is there an “empty tomb” in your life — a place that seems as though God has left but, in reality, has not? Do you ever have a hard time giving thanks to God for that empty tomb?
"I searched the world, but it couldn’t fill me. Man’s empty praise and treasures that fade are never enough. Then You came along and put me back together and every desire is now satisfied here in Your love. Oh there’s nothing better than You, there’s nothing better than You, Lord there’s nothing, nothing is better than You."
"I’m not afraid to show You my weakness, my failures and flaws, Lord You’ve seen them all and You still call me friend. ‘Cause the God of the mountain Is the God of the valley. There’s not a place Your mercy and grace won’t find me again."
"You turn mourning to dancing You give beauty for ashes You turn shame into glory You’re the only one who can." Elevation Worship
November 28th - December 13th
This year’s Angel Tree project will be a little different. As you are aware several things are different from prior years: We are practicing social distancing and many schools have not reopened. Many families are without jobs through no fault of their own. The agencies are at a disadvantage since they must use fewer volunteers to assist in their Christmas gift giving programs. We are limited in space for storage and the number of volunteers we can use at one time. Therefore, we are asking everyone to try something new this year…
After all the Masses on the weekend of
, volunteers will be handing out a special Angel tag as you leave Mass. Please consider taking one or two to help a child in need this Christmas. If you are unable to attend Mass and watch virtually, we have inserted an Angel tag in the bulletin that you can print, cut out and attach to your stocking. We will also leave some Angels in a basket in the gathering space of the church if you attend morning Mass during the week.
Here is what we are asking:
Please purchase a 16”-18” Christmas stocking and a Target, Walmart, Visa, etc. gift card (minimum $25). Please be sure to write the amount of your gift card somewhere on the card. You may choose the age and gender (newborn - teenagers) of your Angel just be sure to write that information on the back of the Angel. Put the gift card in the stocking and fill the rest of the stocking with little fun items you think your Angel would enjoy receiving. For many children this might be the only gift they will receive this year. After you have purchased the items and filled your stocking attach your Angel tag to the stocking and follow the directions on the back of the Angel tag. It is important that you give your stocking to one of the volunteers either on Wednesdays or on the weekend before all the Masses.
If you are unable to shop or would like us to shop for you, please put your donation (checks payable to Holy Spirit) in an envelope and label it “Angel Tree”. You can also go online to our website
, go to “Give On Line” and select “Angel Tree. Donations in the Poor Box will also assist with this project.
Thank you for rising to this new challenge and making this Christmas special for many deserving children. God bless you!
