Christ is Risen! Alleluia! He is truly Risen! Alleluia! We wish everyone a joyous and blessed Easter season as you walk with the Lord, who is with us always. We were blessed to have the traditional blessing of food on Holy Saturday as we waited in joyful hope for the Light of Christ to scatter all darkness. We celebrated at Sts. James and Phillip Cathedral this year since we had two of our community members receive the sacraments. Bishop Launay Saturne officiated at their sacraments.
Vilcia, the mother of two of our kids, desired to receive Communion and Confirmation. We supported her and helped make her journey with the Lord.
Junior is one of our teenage boys, who came to us a year ago, desiring to be baptized into the Catholic faith. He prepared diligently every week for his class.
It was a grace and blessing for us to watch Vilcia and Junior grow in the faith and come to this joyous day of embracing the Lord Jesus Christ in the Catholic Church.
O God, who make this most sacred night radiant with the glory of the Lord’s Resurrection, stir up in your Church a spirit of adoption, so that, renewed in body and mind, we may render you undivided service. Though our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen. (Collect for for Easter Vigil Mass)
