Words from our Pastors to encourage and bless our community. Fr.Mike shares his thoughts on Easter Sunday and the Season of Easter …
Happy Easter! As we celebrate this great Feast of New Life, we pray that you and your families will know the Peace that can only come from the Risen Lord Jesus.
To all who are visiting our community this Easter Sunday, we welcome you and want to invite you to consider St. James as a ‘home’ for your family ̶ to come grow with us in the Goodness of God’s Love.
This is a very exciting time for us here at St. James. It is our hope that within the next year, we can break ground for our new church.
This is a very challenging endeavor that takes all of us doing our part. To those who have pledged to our Building Fund, we thank you for your faithfulness to paying off that pledge. We have to have 50% of the total cost of the building on hand before we can break ground, and that’s the challenge, but with all of us doing our part, that can happen.
To those who have not made a pledge and have not ‘come on board’ yet, we would like to invite you to do so. Just let us know in the Parish Office, and we can make that happen.
This season of Easter lasts for 50 Days, so that we can celebrate the New Life that the Risen Lord brings. We welcome our young children to the altar in the celebration of First Communions, and we listen to the various Resurrection stories, where the Risen Lord Jesus appears to the disciples and others and assures them not to be afraid, but to go and be witnesses of God’s Goodness and Love in all that they do.
May we live out this Easter message by being people of Hope, Peace & Love to all we meet. And may our own faith be deepened as we live out this message each and every day.
Blessings to you and all your family.
