A ‘Thank You’ from the Friars, Staff

The Easter season is upon us. We have reached the point in our liturgical calendar focused on the celebration of the Paschal Mystery, the death and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. The Mystery is at the heart of our faith as Catholic Christians. We are Christians because of His life. We are Christians because of His death. We are Christians because of His resurrection. And we soon will celebrate our faith again when reflecting on His ascension. The Lenten Season is one of preparation for Easter, and is reflected through penitential practices such as fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. The friars and staff of Sacred Heart would like to thank our many volunteers, donors, ministries, and parishioners for their dedication throughout Lent in preparation of Easter and the Easter Season.

During our Lenten and Easter journey, the following examples of time and effort dedicated to our parish community are just a sample of what occurred to help us celebrate the Easter season:

  • Our RCIA team prepared three new members of our Church, fully-initiated at the Easter Vigil
  • Our Women’s Council and Knights of Columbus hosted a successful Giving from the Heart drive
  • Six different ministries hosted our Lenten Soup and Stations events
  • Parishioners supported both our Lenten Giving Tree and Catholic Charities’ “Easter Basket of Plenty” drives
  • Our environment committee provided the settings within the church for each aspect of Holy Week and the Triduum
  • More than 40 lectors, Eucharistic ministers, ushers, choir members, and altar servers assisted across the Triduum and Easter Masses

Holy Week is a journey into the Heart of the Gospel. It is at the center of our Christian Faith. If you’ve never attended the events of Holy Week, here’s a little bit more about them, including what you can expect. To read more about the Triduum, click here.
