This Week's Message from 

Father Dave...

Holy Week is here! And, the weather is finally changing!! All is good for Christians throughout the world as we prepare to celebrate the sacred rituals of our Lord’s last moments on earth. Our prayer and worship however, will go beyond being just a reminder. Our prayer has been given to us so that we can actually enter into the mystery of our faith. Jesus, who embodies all of God in heaven, lived, breathed, ministered, offered Himself, died, rose from the dead, and gave us His eternal Spirit. The coming week offers us the opportunity to delve more deeply into an entire lifetime of our Savior, pondering what He has meant and continues to mean for us and the world.

Today as we celebrate Palm Sunday, I am reminded of Jesus entering Jerusalem to attend to the Passover. He will bring to all those moments that He shared... at the Last Supper... during His time upon the Cross... and the joy of Easter... a lifetime of His devotion, ministry and work, as He gave of Himself to His Father in heaven. Even after two thousand years, Jesus will provide moments that we will continue to remember.
