FOURTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
Following Jesus’ example is not easy. He did what was right even if others disagreed with him. He did not exchange insults with those who sought to put him down and harm him nor did he threaten to retaliate. How do you respond to those who disagree with you or seek to do you harm? Do you seek to “get back” at those you regard as your enemies? Do you strive to treat everyone with dignity and respect regardless of who they are or what they believe? Do you try to not only forgive those who try to hurt you but make an effort to treat them kindly and with respect?
Only goodness and kindness
follow me all the days of my life.

If you have not yet donated to the Catholic Home Missions Appeal, it is not too late. Over 40% of dioceses in the United States are considered mission territories because they are unable to fund essential pastoral work needed in their communities. Your support funds religious education, seminary formation, lay ministry training, and other programs that build vibrant faith communities right here in the United States. Please be generous. More information can be found at www.usccb.org/home-missions.
This Sunday is the first Sunday of the month when we accept donations towards our RENOVATIONS & IMPROVEMENTS FUND. Use your gold numbered envelopes or mark a plain envelope with your contribution. We are so thankful for your support!
