Welcome to our Parish web page.
We have been quickly moving through the Holy Season of Lent.
The greatest week of the Church's Liturgical Year---Holy week is almost upon us. For some Lent has last more than 40 days and 40 nights, more than 12 months.
It may seem that we have been living lent for more than a year.
Holy week brings us new hope as we will be celebrating with congregations being present. Lent is a reminder of God's love and mercy. Holy Week underlines this. It reminds us that darkness can not over power the light. The Light of Christ will shine for all to see.
"We behold the splendor of God shinning on the face of Jesus. We behold the splendor of God, shinning on the face of the Son."
These words come from the hymn to celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration. In the Transfiguaration, Jesus reminds us of our ultimate goal, life with Him in the Kingdom of His Father.
Although we loose hope from time to time, hope is restored in the personage of Jesus if we keep Him as our focus. Let the Light of Christ shine in our hearts, leading us forward into the glory of Easter.
“I plead with you – never, ever give up on hope, never doubt, never tire, and never become discouraged. Be not afraid.” --
Pope St. John Paul II
