Pastor's Corner

Dear Parishioners:                               

We are an Alleluia People !

Jesus Christ is Risen today, Alleluia!

This is the day the Lord has made, Alleluia!

Let us be glad and rejoice in it, Alleluia!

Easter is filled with wonderful connections between the spiritual and natural worlds.

Explore and enjoy them for a more profound appreciation of Christ’s death and resurrection.  Read this week about the disciples’ walk to Emmaus in Luke 24:13-35 and then take a walk, noticing the signs of spring, a wondrous gift from God.

A Prayer for Easter

The Lord of life has risen with power,

bringing with him love and justice,

respect, forgiveness and reconciliation.

The One who from nothingness

had called the world into existence,

only he could break the seals of the tomb,

only he could become the source of New Life.

 St. Pope John Paul II

Easter Blessings!

Stewardship Reflection ~ April 21, 2019


“He went about doing good and healing all those oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.” (Acts 10:38)

On this Easter Sunday, open your hearts to receive God’s love, mercy and forgiveness. God is love and we are made in His image and likeness. Let our lives reflect His light to others. Pray for guidance on how to live your life and give thanks for all that He has given you.


We are St. Gabriel!


Msgr. John B. Shamleffer
