BLESSINGS TO ALL

Easter Blessings to all of our Parishioners 

and their families at this Holy Season.  

     While He was with them at table, He took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to  them.  With that their eyes were opened and they recognized Him, but he vanished from their sight.

When we really understand Your word and you open Scriptures to us then we are ready to sit at table and enter into the mystery of your taking, blessing, breaking, and giving.  Blessed be your broken bread which is really your broken and now glorious body.

Fr. Dave and Parish Staff
