We have a Parish Leader Check In today at 11. All faith formation leaders are welcome. See the link and number here. Note: we are no longer recording these meetings.

Check out the resources here – from Palm Sunday to Pentecost. Great videos for your families as you encourage parents to be the first witnesses of the faith.

Our friends at St. Pius are inviting all Catechetical leaders such as Youth Ministers, DREs, and Catechists to spend the morning with Bobby Angel and be reignited in Eucharist zeal. Cost: $20 per person. Details and registration is here.

If your parish would like to host singer/songwriter Joe Melendrez while he is in town from April 24-26, please email Joe directly.

From our friends at the NFCYM:

We are looking for Pastors who have had or currently have youth ministry in their parish. We are looking for a diverse perspective, as well as cultural and geographical representation from throughout the country. As a thank you to those who invite a pastor to participate, you will be entered into a raffle to win a $100 Amazon gift card regardless of whether your pastor is selected. All pastors who complete an interview will receive a $100 Amazon gift card.


Where are my stones?

What are their names?

Would I know them if I met them face to face?

And if the empty tomb I stood in front of was me would I call it death?

Or would I call it resurrection?

My heart beats out the answer much clearer than I live it.

O, happy emptiness! It’s what I need a lot of to be full.

Rolling stones is what it’s all about but Resurrection is another name.

Be patient with each other’s stones (Ephesians 4:1-3).

Jesus was gentle with Thomas’ stone (John 20:24-29).

Peter had to roll away some stones in his life too (John 13:6-11).

The call continues.

We are called to help others experience Resurrection, to help them break out of their tombs.

Of course, that means we’ll have to break forth from our own tombs first.

We’d look kind of silly preaching from the inside of our tombs, wouldn’t we?
