Easter Greetings I take this opportunity to wish all of our people a happy and Christ filled Easter, and Easter season.  May the risen Christ give us the joy and peace that we can receive only through Him.  Let us continue to remember those less well off than we are, the sick, the hurting, and the suffering.  God’s blessing to all! – MR.


   Welcome & It is with great joy we welcome, Luther Owens, Blair Owens, Judy Bloodworth, Stanley

Congratulations   Bloodworth, and Shirley Cupsid into full communion with the Catholic faith on Holy Saturday night. 


Pave the Way – CSA The annual Catholic Service Appeal Weekend will be April 30 – May 1.  Bishop Latino is asking every Catholic family to participate. As a Catholic community, we are called to respond to God’s grace in our lives. The Catholic Service Appeal is an opportunity to respond to His grace by sharing our treasure to help our neighbors throughout our diocese. Please go online to www.jacksondiocese.org to learn more or to make an on line donation.    


A Happy for the Children We have planned an extra Happy for our children. We began this a couple of years ago and it seemed to be tremendously popular. In place of an Easter Egg Hunt we will be inviting all of our children and their parents to gather in front of the Church on Easter morning after Mass. Among our surprises will be a show of love for our children and their Bible School Teachers.  


Priests Retreat Father Ruane will be participating in the annual diocesan clergy retreat with Bishop Latino and a majority of the other priests from our diocese.  The retreat will be at St. Mary of the Pines in Chattewa, MS beginning on Monday and ending mid-morning on Friday. If you should need Father Ruane while he is on retreat just call the rectory and Karla will get in touch with him.


Sincere Gratitude To all who helped make our Holy Week services meaningful and sacred as Lectors, Eucharist ministers, Mass Servers and those who helped decorate and fix up our Church for the sacred ceremony of Holy Week.


Very Important  Vigil Mass on the 30th will be at 6:30pm please be patient and make note of this change, Fr. Ruane is involved in a wedding.     


Choose Life As we celebrate Christ’s victory over death, let us pledge ourselves more fervently to battle the Culture of Death that threatens the very moral foundations of our society. Christ came that we might have life and have it more abundantly, not so that some might take away the gift of life from defenseless others.
