Happy Easter, Alleluia!  This is a greeting you could extend for the next 50 days, especially this week, called the Octave Week of Easter.  Easter is not just one day, but is the great 50 day Season of Easter.
This weekend we begin the Annual Catholic appeal (ACA).  This charitable effort is part of our Catholic identity here in the Archdiocese.  I pray you will help our parish do our part, especially reaching our “new donor” goal of 133.  Remember, no gift is to small.
Your pledge cards will be in the lobby.  And we pray….“Dear Lord, we lay before you the labors and fruits of the Annual Catholic Appeal.”
Msgr. Norb Ernst – Pastor



You are invited to attend the
“Mother 2 Mother” Presentation…

Can we agree that nobody can know the reason I think or feel as I do unless I tell them my experiences?

One of the best ways to promote understanding is by story-telling.

Mary, Mother Parish’s Christian Service Commission has invited a panel of 5 black women to tell us their stories about raising their teenage sons. These stories have a unique element not common for white parents. You are invited to attend Mother 2 Mother to listen to their stories. The Moderator for this event is Dr. Christi Griffin, Founder & President of The Ethics Project.

This event is for moms, dads, singles, couples without children, grandparents, police officers and their families. Captain Ron Johnson of the Highway Patrol & Head of the Ferguson Unified Forces will participate in this evening of listening & healing. As we understand their experience we help to heal the pain that these black mothers must live. After the panel tells their stories there will be time for the audience to ask questions or give comments.

Please attend to inform yourself about this topic. See you there!
