Father's Message

Easter Sunday is Over, Now What? Perhaps you are asking that this week as you return to your day-to-day responsibilities. To help you reflect on this, I share the following message from Fr. Zacheusz M. Dulniok, from the Holy Cross Catholic Church, Nicosia, Cyprus

My Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, 

After our Lenten journey, the final Lenten ceremonies and the Holy Triduum, the commemoration of the last days that Christ lived through here on earth, helped us enter deeply into the climax of His suffering, death and resurrection.  We should not be sad or gloomy but really rejoice and be glad, because death has no more power over Jesus.  "He is the true Lamb who has taken away the sins of the world; by dying He has destroyed our death, and by rising, restored our life".  Let us, my sisters and brothers, sincerely rejoice as if we were given a new life.  Let us manifest our joy by singing: 'Alleluia, Christ is Risen! He is truly Risen! Alleluia!'  Fr. Zacheusz M. Dulniok, ofm

For all your good work at Our Lady of Peace, I'd like to personally thank everyone who participated during our Lenten celebration and Easter most especially, those who helped beautify, clean and arrange the house of God, those who provided flowers, those in the liturgy ministry, music ministry, lectors, greeters, extraordinary ministers of communion and altar servers.  

Humbly yours in Christ,

 

Father Nicholas Pavia
