The activities around the parish always reach a climax during Holy Week. Along with the beautiful services of Holy Week, Easter Sunday, and Mercy Sunday comes a lot of extra work for a lot of people who do their jobs so well that they make it look effortless, but I assure you it is not. So a thank you is in order.
Thank you to Fr. Kris, Fr. Banzin, Deacon Bob Boharic and Deacon Randy Belice who put in a lot of extra effort into practices, services, and writing homilies. It is truly a blessing in my life to serve with such a generous staff.
Thank you to all of our Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers, and Altar Servers who fulfilled their roles so faithfully. Thank you to Michael Silhavy, our Music Director, Carina Willems and Wendy Silhavy for playing the organ and piano, our Cantors, Choir, and musicians for their beautiful music. It was truly splendid!
Thank you to Barb Slipek and her committee for decorating the Church and Parish Center so beautifully and to Susan Wawzenski and Sharmayne Stach for being such attentive sacristans and Sallie Boge for adding the touch of Spring to the exterior of the church. The environment for each day truly assisted us in our prayers by helping to place us in the right frame of mind.
Thank you to Manny Tinoco and David Hodge for assisting in the set up and keeping it all clean.
Thank you to all who sent cards and “Goodies” to the rectory. Your goodness and generosity is truly a reflection of God’s love and goodness. Thank you to all who supported the parish through your annual Easter donation. We are truly dependent on your great generosity.
Finally, I Thank God for truly blessing us as a Parish Community with so many reflections of his great love for us!
