FATHER ABEL’S COLUMN – APRIL 3RD, 2016

resI just wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your presence and participation during the Holy Week services. It was truly a beautiful celebration of our Lord’s Resurrection and I hope and pray that we will all have a profound appreciation for all that our Lord has done for us.

Thank you also for your very generous Easter gift to our parish. It truly allows us to continue the many programs that we offer in our parish so that our parishioners can keep connected to our parish and grow spiritually in their relationship with our Risen Lord.

A special word of thanks to all our lectors, extraordinary ministers of holy Communion, ushers, sacristans, altar servers, choir, cantors and our director of music for all enhancing our liturgies. I’m so grateful to the priests and deacons for preparing and celebrating the Liturgies so beautifully. And finally the special thanks must go to Fr. Carlos for all of the time and preparations that went into assuring that everything was ready for Holy Week and Easter.

God bless you

Rev. Kevin P. Abels
Pastor
