***********UP COMING DATES**** IMPORTANT CELEBRATIONS*********** Please keep an eye on the bulletin for details on Mothers Day, First Communion, and High School Graduation. Dates and details in next weeks bulletin.


 FIRST COMMUNION – We will celebrate 1st Holy Communion on Mothers Day, May 11th.  I think this is a very special gift to mom that their child receive the Lord in Holy Communion for the first time on Mothers Day.  We will meet with the parents of the First Communion Children this Tuesday April 15th immediately after the 6:00pm Mass.  It is very important that both parents try to be present.   


EASTER SEASON – Remember we celebrate the Easter season for fifty (50) days up to Pentecost, won’t you make every effort to enjoy the Easter Season by the sharing in the daily Eucharist when possible.


CHOOSE LIFESpeaking in defense of the 2000 Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, Rep. Henry Hyde who, died this past year said, “This is not a debate about religious doctrine or even about public policy options. It is a debate about our understanding of human dignity, what it means to be a member of the human family, even though tiny, powerless and unwanted.”
