We are all now living through a difficult time. 
More than ever we are being called to turn toward
the light of Christ and follow Him.

During this time we also need to maintain some humor.
Below is a graphic to hopefully make you smile
especially those parents who have their children home
trying to complete school assignments.

Watch the Passion of the Christ Movie before Easter!
(not for young children!)

The film focuses on the last 12 hours of Jesus' life and
begins in the Garden of Olives where Jesus
has gone to pray after the Last Supper.

When we witness what He endured,
we should never again question His love
OR the sufferings we sometimes have to bear.

“One thing every Catholic should agree about regarding the suspension of public Masses in multiple dioceses across the globe: we now will experience the deprivation that our brethren in the Middle East and China experience on a daily basis. Unite your sufferings with theirs, and PRAY!" —Matthew Balan

Please know that we are praying for all of you!!
May God bring this pandemic to an abrupt end soon!
