April 3, 2018

My dear parishioners,

Let me begin my weekly column by once again saying “Happy Easter.” There are so many people I need to thank in the name of the parish and in my own name.  We live out our faith liturgically. So thank you to all those who helped with our Liturgical Celebrations. To Bill Cooper, the choir, and cantors who helped us pray, thank you. To Toni Dumville and Margaret Pleasants who always make our church look beautiful, thank you. To our liturgical ministries (lectors, Eucharistic minsters, ushers, and altar servers) who lead us in prayer, thank you.

Today we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday. It used to be called ‘Low Sunday. St. Faustina Kowalska received visions from the Lord Jesus that the feast of Divine Mercy would be celebrated on the First Sunday after Easter. This devotion the Divine Mercy of Jesus was actively promoted by Pope (Saint) John Paul II. Although the feast of Divine Mercy was first celebrated on April 28, 1935, Pope John Paul II on April 22. 2001 officially dedicated this Sunday, the first Sunday after Easter, as Divine Mercy Sunday.

 

Have a good week.

Monsignor Montecalvo
