Dear Friends,

As mentioned last week, the Month of May holds many wonderful things to acknowledge and celebrate.  We are continuing in the joys of our Easter Season.  This beautiful liturgical time, when we rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus and all His promises to the faithful, sustains you and me as we continue to be stewards proclaiming Good News!

Good News has been happening among our young people who were Confirmed at Sacred Heart Cathedral May 2nd. Good News was proclaimed this past week with the celebrations of First Communion at our weekend masses.  Our young people, children, families, friends, parishioners and guests have been coming together with jubilation because indeed the Risen Lord is present in our midst!  We are blessed and may we continue to support one another in faith and continue to share our blessings with all peoples.

The Easter Season will come to a conclusion on May 19th with Pentecost. As of this day, we will have been celebrating 50 days of Easter! This is our birthday of the church!  It is a festive occasion for sure.  You may wish to join your liturgical ministers in wearing red to mass. Red is the liturgical color celebrating the fire of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of God.

This day of Pentecost, we will gather at 5 PM to continue the celebration. I hope you will join our two faith communities for food, music, worship, prayer and fellowship. We will meet together at the Parish Life Center at Transfiguration. Hotdogs, Hamburgers, Veggie Burgers and drinks will be provided. We invite everyone to bring a dish to pass if you are able.  You can  RSVP  HERE.  It will be a fun time for ALL AGES and EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO COME!

I hope to see you there!

This weekend we come together with grateful hearts to celebrate our mothers, grandmothers, godmothers and those who have been like a mother to us!  We remember these special individuals and those who are with Jesus in the Kingdom of God!  May we lift them in our prayers and at our masses.  There will be a special blessing for them at the conclusion of the masses.

The Staff would also like to offer a carnation to each mother, grandmother, godmother and those who take the role of mother on in our lives as a gift.  We appreciate each and every one of you!  Happy Mother’s Day!  May you have a peaceful week going forth with our Risen Lord!

With faith, joy, blessings, and gratitude for our Blessed Mother in her special month,

Father Rob
