April Showers...Snow showers, that is!
Easter continues! I hope your celebrations were joy filled and happy.
Did you ever notice that while Lent is 40 days long, the Easter Season (Eastertide) lasts 50 days?
I think this tells us something about God’s plan for the world!

ALL (parishioners and non-parishioners, Catholics, other Christians, and non-Christians) are invited to a 7-night exploration of Christ's meaning in our lives. The program is free, and includes dinner, music & worship, a 30-minutes video, and small group discussion. We will meet Thursday evenings, 6:00-8:30 pm, beginning April 19.

Spring is a metaphor for change.
Some changes we eagerly await, and some we abhor.
Some changes we plan and others arrive uninvited.
To all these changes we ask the gift of Your perspective
beckoning us to expectation, hope, and rebirth.
May the sunlight and the rain be reminders
that You are at work renewing the earth.
As a God of renewal, You are ever at work in our lives, too.
Open our eyes and lives
to the needed changes in our lives this Spring.
Awaken us to new life and perspective,
for we pray in Jesus' name.
