-A Note From Fr. Ivan
Once again, I am writing with the hope that all are safe and well. The Pandemic has distressed each of us but, although we must all keep our guard up and continue to wear masks, and social distance, it appears there may be better days to come soon. I hope everyone that is eligible has received or is planning to receive their vaccine shortly.
I would like to let everyone know the schedule for our Holy Week and Easter services. Easter is our most important Solemnity of the year in our Roman Catholic Church. Everyone looks forward to all of the rich liturgies the season has to offer- beginning with Holy Thursday, through Good Friday and Holy Saturday, and concluding with the joyous Resurrection on Easter Sunday. The message of Easter is that nothing can destroy us anymore - to pain, not sin, not rejection, not death. The message of Easter is that Christ has conquered all and that we can conquer all if we put our faith in him. That is what resurrection is all about. That is what we celebrate.
Due to the fact that our churches are operating at a limited capacity and we usually have larger crowds than usual, we have decided to add some additional services. Our schedule will be as follows:
Holy Thursday 7:00 PM at St. Mary's ***
Good Friday NOON at St. Mary's ***
And NOON at St. Joseph's
Holy Saturday 8:15 PM at St. Mary's ***
Easter Sunday 7:30 AM at St. Mary's ***
9:15 AM at St. Mary's
And 9:15 AM at St. Joseph's
11:30 AM at St. Joseph's
And 11:300 AM at St. Mary's
NOTE: *** INDICATES MASS TO BE LIVE STREAMED
On behalf of Fr. Bob, Deacon Tom, Deacon Henry, the Parish Staff, and myself, I wish you all a Blessed Easter and will continue to pray for your health and safety in all of my Masses and daily private prayers.
During this pandemic crisis, all of us have been affected economically and I ask for your continued monetary contributions for the survival of our beloved Resurrection Parish.
Rev. Ivan R. Trujillo, Pastor
