Rector’s Corner

Dear Parishioners;

The Lord is Risen, Alleluia! Easter and the Easter Season is a time of great joy and newness of life! The Lord’s Resurrection is the cause of our joy and our hope for where He has gone, we hope to follow!

I am running a little late this year! In a special way, we welcome the newest members of our parish family who received the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. We also welcome those who were received into full communion of the Catholic Church. Lastly, we congratulate our newest members who completed their Christian initiaton through the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation. Please continue to pray for all these individuals!

I especially want to thank all those who worked tirelessly to prepare our Church for the Sacred Triduum, our choir, the altar servers, the lectors, the ushers, the flower committee and our behind the scene sacristans and anyone else who worked so hard to make the celebration of the Lord’s Resurrection so beautiful and grace‐filled.

May the Risen Lord be in your hearts, souls and minds as you seek to be His disciples spreading His gospel message of Divine Mercy to the world that desperately needs to hear it.

Sincerely in the Risen Lord,

Rev. Robert Rippy
Rector, Cathedral of St. Thomas More
