Easter — The Ressurection

The Gospel and Homily are available here.

Readings

“We see this in Jesus: He takes in hatred, holds it, transforms it, and gives back love; he takes in bitterness, holds it, transforms it, and gives back graciousness; he takes in curses, holds them, transforms them, and gives back blessing; he takes in chaos, holds it, transforms it, and gives back order; he takes in fear, holds it, transforms it, and gives back freedom; he takes in jealousy, holds it, transforms it, and gives back affirmation; and he takes in satan and murder, holds them, transforms them, and gives back only God and forgiveness.” — Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OFM

Good Friday

The homily can be found here.

Readings

 

“I think the passage where a dying God rests in the lap of a human mother is as far down as divinity can come, and probably the greatest height that humanity can reach.
(Fr. Edward Dowling, SJ)

St. Patrick Breakfast

Once more, as in years past, St. Patrick hosted a breakfast on March 17, 2018, in celebration of the feast of our patron saint.  Parishioners gathered for fellowship, for the exchange of gifts, and for recognition of one parishioner’s service with the Shamrock Award.  That honor this year went to Mr. George Guidry. Another part of the celebration is a talk shared by the pastor on some topic of interest.  A recording of that talk can be found on the Pastor’s website.
