Bishop Parkes Listening Session
As he continues to get to know the Diocese, Bishop Parkes is holding several listening sessions, including one at St. Thomas More on Monday, April 28th at 6:30pm. These sessions are designed to give you an opportunity to tell the Bishop what the Diocese is doing to help you spiritually, and what you would like to see it focus on in the next couple of years. The Bishop will be listening to input but not responding to questions at this time. For more information visit ptdiocese.org.
Is it possible?
There are times where we all wish we could start over and push a cosmic “restart” button or at least our own personal restart button. The truth of the matter is that we can start over. Things can change and for the better. Easter is a day when we celebrate not just a nice historical religious fact of Christ rising from the dead, but a whole new frontier and experience that the human race will enjoy, even now. Life will always triumph over death. Death may seem like the end of the road, but in Christ it’s merely a “merge” sign that allows us to continue onto living a greater life.
My prayer for all of you is that Easter will celebrate what we most love about our lives and that those blessings are closely celebrated with the joy of Christ moving from the darkness of the tomb to the radiance of a new day. That new day is for all of us to enjoy.
HAPPY EASTER TO ALL OF YOU
