The Lord is risen as he said! The Father has responded to Jesus’ obedient yes with new life and surpassing glory. From ancient times the Christian people have gathered to keep the Easter vigil, rejoicing in the Lord’s triumph over sin and death as pledge of their own victory. The scripture readings, many more than usual, recall God’s saving interventions in human history, which culminated in Jesus’ death and resurrection for us. Let us listen with special care tonight to God’s word. It urges us to accept the invitation to love him with all our hearts. Then, as we renew our baptismal commitment, our lives will become more deeply hidden in Christ’s. We will share gladly in his death, in the hope of knowing the joy of his resurrection.

Divine Mercy Sunday – April 23rd

Seventeen years ago, Pope St. John Paul II established a new feast day, Divine Mercy Sunday, to be celebrated on the Sunday after Easter, in response to Jesus’ request for this to St. Faustina in the 1930’s. Jesus said that it would be a day when “I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who will approach the fount of My mercy.”


  1. Novena begins on Good Friday. If you wish to pray it with others, meet at the Divine Mercy image (beside the confessional) after ANY service on that day and after 9:00 a.m. Mass during all of Easter week.
  2. Acts of Mercy—word, deed and prayer.
  3. Make a Good Confession

Information and Novena Pamphlets are available at church exits. See the bulletin boards for details of the special Hour of Adoration and Benediction on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 23rd.

Living the Gospel…

Living the Gospel by evangelizing our faith in the greater world…

St. Anthony’s parish in the Diocese of Guntur in India has nine mission stations which are between 10—15 km. away from the parish. There are nearly 350 Catholic families and 500 children going to school from these areas. As the mission stations are a distance from the parish, the faithful do not experience many religious activities Father Mayakuntala Kumar, pastor of the parish, with the support of the Pastoral Mission Fund and ShareLife, is conduction a Children Faith Formation Camp to help the children to become rooted in the Catholic faith.

With our support,Father Kumar is helping to evangelize the faith not only for today, but for the future as well.

Next ShareLife Sunday is May 7. Please give generously
