Easter Greetings from Fr. Ross
Peace and Blessings. I hope you and your family are staying healthy. As we enter the Easter Season, it is a time to remember the hope and promise that are ours because of Jesus rising from the dead. As things progress, I believe we are rising up to meet the challenges that are before us. Many of us have received our vaccinations–the more, the better. Please make sure you get yours. Also, we still need to be prudent with regard to face masks and the manner in which we gather. Let’s make sure we don’t let our guard down. May the joy and the spirit of Easter and Springtime, fill your hearts and your homes.
We continue to celebrate our daily Masses (8:00 AM) and our weekend Masses in person (Saturday at 4:00 PM and Sunday at 8:30 AM, 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM.) The obligation to attend Mass continues to be suspended. We continue to Live Stream all our Masses. The Masses are also saved if you would like to view Mass a little later on in the day. At the appropriate time click on “Live Stream Mass” below and then click on the “▹” which is found in the center of the screen.

Our Facebook Evening Chat around 7:30 PM, Monday to Friday, continues to be a little bright spot in the day. It lasts about 10 minutes or so and finishes off with prayer for all those important intentions that we have. To join us, click on “Evening Chat” above.
Don’t forget to check out our Weekly Bulletin, the Sunday Homily and Reflection. (The tabs are found below.) Please do not hesitate to contact me with any of your questions or concerns via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or give me call (Office: 627-2710, Ext. 11 / Cell: 410-258-4087). May our closeness to God and each other fill our hearts with hope and confidence. May God continue to bless you and your loved ones. May we continue to bless one another with our kindness, gentleness, patience and prayers. DON’T FORGET: WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS! AMEN!
