Alleluia – He is Risen!  Because Jesus is Risen we have the grace and mercy of Almighty God which allows our lives to be transformed in Christ!

On Sunday, May 11th our Church will celebrate the First Holy Communion of 16 young people.  Please pray for them and their families today – may God bless them with the grace they need to live more and more like Jesus Himself!  At the 5pm and 10am Masses this weekend we will celebrate Good Shepherd Sunday commit ourselves to once again being people who hear the voice of the Shepherd and follow it in the ways of eternal life.  See YOU in Church, right?

Our parish mourns the passing of two long time members.  Stella DiGiuseppe passed last Saturday after a few years of illness following a stroke.  Stella was active in Women’s Day and in Home & School when her children were young.  Her funeral is Saturday, May 10th at 10am (with a viewing from 9am to 10am).  We also mourn Myrtle Cromartie who died on May 5th after suffering from dementia for many years.  With her husband Bob she was active in many things at our parish, including her beloved Gospel Choir.  Her funeral is Thursday, May 15th at 10am (where is a viewing from 9am to 10am).  Please keep their families in prayer and pray for their souls at rest with the Lord.  Amen!

Our youth group, B.A.T.T.L.E. is inviting the parish to join them for a trip to Hershey Park on Sunday, June 22nd after the 10am Mass.  The cost is $40 and reservations with payment are due by the end of May.  Please contact Christine Russell for more information.

Our School Children will have their annual May Procession on Tuesday, May 13th at 7pm in the school.  Please join them in prayer as we honor the Mother of God and give God Glory and Praise!

Did you miss the weekly bulletin?   Our live stream did not save last week for some reason, sorry about those technical problems.

Need a boast in your spiritual life?  How about making a THREE MINUTE RETREAT?  What about joining us for Catholic Call to Prayer each day through Pentecost?

Let’s continue to prayer for one another…especially the sick, the suffering, the unemployed and those having a rough time…may God’s mercy and grace fall upon each of them this day.
