Dear Friends,

I offer continuing Alleluias and Joyful Blessings to all of you as we go forth in these days of Easter glory!!!

I pray your Holy Week and Easter day offered you the many blessings Jesus, our Risen Brother, has desired for
each and everyone of us. We are indeed blessed and these past several weeks of “Becoming…Forever
Changed” has been a gift for our spiritual renewal. The continuing days before our Pentecost remain opportunities to “Become…Forever Changed” as we celebrate the Risen Lord, encounter Him personally in our own lives and like
Mary Magdalene, the “other Mary” and the disciples witness to others His Resurrection! Yes, Alleluia!!!

I want to thank everyone from Saint Catherine of Siena & Church of the Transfiguration who enabled our communities to
celebrate a sacred and holy Lent and now Easter time. All your prayerful works of stewardship added to the sacredness of
our music ministries, gathering for special seƫngs of prayer, reconciliation, the creativity of making our environment
seƫngs one of beauty and contemplaƟon, and yes, those special moments that all of us, as “children of God” enjoyed with
prayer, egg hunts and knowing we are beloved by our Lord! To all who offered their gifts of stewardship, I am very grateful.

I offer my continued thanks to everyone who has prayerfully supported me in my recent biopsy. Your prayers lifted me to
an early Easter when my results came back negative. I do not take them lightly. I am so mindful of you, family and other
friends who I walk with that haven’t always received what we hope for and desire. I so admire the faith and witness of
these sisters and brothers of mine. They, you, are great witnesses of the promises of Jesus and I am in awe of each and
every one of you. My prayer for you, my faith in you and in Him, will always be before me.

God continue to be with all of you! I pray to walk daily with you and promise to be present with you in these days of Easter

Again, let us rejoice in Him and our Alleluias,
Father Rob
