Parish Notices for week of April 30

EmmausGood day dear friends,
This Sunday we will hear the absolutely beautiful story of the Road to Emmaus – over the sharing of a meal and hospitality, the two disciples encounter the Risen Christ in the stranger. Thats what Love does, it awakens our hearts and our eyes so that we can see and feel Love’s Presence in others, even in strangers. Resurrection is about the awakening of our hearts to God’s Presence, Christ’s Presence, Love’s Presence.
Love,
Father Gerald+
