Spiritual Reading – After buying 17 items from our gift store, slide on over to our spacious and well-organized library and pick out some spiritual reading for your Easter Season reflections.

Men and Women are from Eden.  (NOT from Mars and Venus)

This book by Dr. Mary Healy is a great intro/study guide for the Theology of the Body which are the teachings on love, marriage and sexuality developed by St. John Paul II.  The book includes reflection questions for individual and group study.  If you would like a copy and would like to join a discussion please sign up in the gathering space.  We are planning to meet weekly with the first session starting on Thursday, April 4 at 5:00 PM following Adoration.  Other times will be available as needed or requested.  PIZZA and carcinogenic beverages will be served.

Please read chapters 1 & 2 in preparation for Session #1.

Eden Invitation:  Check out this website for a great example of how faithful Catholics are reaching out to those challenged with some type of sexual identify/dysphoria issue.  Community, acceptance and faithfulness are all available. https://www.edeninvitation.com

Parish Cleanup Day. Our Parish Spring Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, April 20, from 8:30 to Noon.  It will be fun.  All parishioners are invited.  A sign-up list is available in the social hall with the specific tasks that need to be done.  Please print your name beside a task listed or identify an additional task that may need to be accomplished. Coffee & Doughnuts will be available before and during operations and a primo chili dog lunch will be served upon completion.

THANK YOU yet again for those who provided our seasonal decorating and liturgical ministries.  It’s truly amazing how much we accomplish with such a small group of faithful parishioners.  What’s even more special is that the ‘ol worn out priest doesn’t even have to supervise.  Hallelujah!!


Homily Reflection Questions

  1. “Clear out the old yeast, so that you may become a fresh batch of dough, inasmuch as you are unleavened.”     1 Cor. 5:7

What old habit or ineffective way of thinking have you let go of during Lent?

Where will you find the ingredients for the fresh dough to now ‘cook’ with?

  • “Let us celebrate the feast, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”  1 Cor. 5:8

Think of one of your relationships that needs more sincerity and truth.  How will you begin that process?  How has Lent helped to prepare you?

  • “(Peter and John) both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and arrived at the tomb first; he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.”  Jn. 20:5-6

When did your impetuous behavior or zeal cause you to ignore a deeper wisdom that was only moments or inches away?  When might you have curbed your zeal just in time to take advantage of the wise advice or example of an elder?  How did it change your life?

  • Think back over the years, or maybe even the decades, and recall the time when you received the most candy from the Easter Bunny. 

Did you share?   Your favorite candy or your least favorite?


“Withdraw often into the depths of your being, and there with living faith rest on the breast of God, like a child, in the sacred silence of faith and holy love.”                                                      St. Paul of the Cross
