Dear Parishioners,
Christ is Risen! Alleluia! Alleluia! Happy Easter! 
It was a wonderful sight seeing so many of our parishioners as we celebrated, The Triduum, The Vigil and all the Easter Sunday Masses.
As we emerge from the pandemic, may we all renew our belief and hope in the enduring promise of Christ’s Resurrection.
May the grace of the Risen Christ be with you and your loved ones throughout the Easter Season
God Bless,

Dear Parishioners,
What a joy it is to gather together this Easter as the family of God in celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Christ is Risen! Alleluia! Alleluia! Happy Easter! 
Thank you for your presence and prayers as we celebrate together this year. I especially extend a warm welcome to you all and to those who have returned to worship in person and those who are unable to come in person, as we celebrate the beautiful gift of life that God has blessed each of us with.
It is important to gather as a faith community to remember and celebrate what God has done for us.
.
May the grace of the Risen Christ be with you and your loved ones this Easter and always.
God Bless,
Fr. Cyrus
