Then the other disciple also went in, the one who had arrived at the tomb first, and he saw and believed. For they did not yet understand the Scripture that he had to rise from the dead. - Jn 20:8-9
With our eyes fixed on the Risen Lord Jesus Christ
Conformed to his image in Baptism and the Eucharist
We grow together in our Gospel faith
And our understanding of our rich Catholic tradition
Building the Kingdom by living in gratitude
Reaching out generously to all people in need.

Also a big thank you to all the members of our great parish who baked for the bake sale and participated in the plentiful breakfast and bought baked goods.

In Joy and Hope: JOURNEY TOGETHER ALONG THE LAKESHORE
I get just a bit frustrated and impatient because spring seems to take its good-old-natured time no pun intended in making its appearance in the Midwest and especially, it seems, on the Lakeshore. The unexpected snow storm the blustery cold wind the grey days all of this gets very old especially on these early days in April. There are two lines from the work of the Jesuit priest-poet Father Gerard Manley Hopkins that come to mind as I am waiting for spring: “What is all this juice and all this joy?” and “There lives the dearest freshness deep down things.”
