During Easter’s fifty days of rejoicing we have time to savor the meaning of Jesus’ death and resurrection. The gospel tells of the disciples’ fear (they still did not understand) changing into great joy when suddenly Christ stands among them. He brings the forgiveness won by his wounds and gives the young Church, in the power of the Spirit, his mission: to make available his forgiveness and peace. On Easter the disciples were slow to believe; later, Thomas demands the concrete proof which faith does not require. But his scepticism gives way, when Christ appears, to the strongest expression of faith found in the gospels. His confession evokes our faith, who have not seen and yet believed. The first two readings show the effects of the risen Lord’s presence; the community formed at Easter stands out for its common prayer and mutual love, while the individual believer looks forward in glorious joy to seeing the risen Lord. Trails cannot wipe out the joy of those who believe. One day we will see fully.

 We have received approval to proceed with the paving of the parking lot to the west of the church. This will provide us with an additional 76 parking spots. A sketch will be posted shortly in the Narthex of what the parking lot will look like. We have started submission of applications to the city for the permits to proceed. We expect to receive these permits by mid April at which time we will go out to tender for construction. We expect the construction to occur during the summer and look to have it completed by the end of September.

Holy Eucharist – Transportation


Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.

Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
