Easter Sunday - Christ the Lord is Risen Today! Alleluia!

Today on Easter Sunday, throngs of parishioners gathered in Blessed Sacrament Church to celebrate Jesus’ Resurrection from the dead.

In his homily, Father Anthony Killian preached to an overflowing church about the significance of Easter – the opportunity to begin a clean slate, the chance to strengthen one’s faith through daily prayer and regular Mass attendance and the gift of eternal life after death.

The psalm from today’s Easter Sunday Mass proclaims, “This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad!” It is truly a day to rejoice and be glad about the many wonderful works that God has done for his people through Christ. Rejoice and be glad!

I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
— Psalm 118:17

Happy Easter to you and yours!
