Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Easter is here.......what a glorious time of year. Not only is there rebirth in nature but our spirits are purified by the lenten season and the the celebration of Christ's passion, death and resurrection has left a mark upon our souls of our own resurrection. Indeed, "For God loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life." John3:16
May you enjoy the blessing of this, the holiest of seasons...New Life, New Purpose, New Promise...New YOU!
Praised be Jesus Christ!
Father Joe Piekarski
Divine Mercy Sunday ... The feast of Divine Mercy, the second Sunday of Easter, was promulgated by Saint John Paul II and Pope Francis asked the Church, last year, to take advantage of God’s mercy and share it with one another. Saint John the Beloved Church will celebrate this devotion on Sunday, April 23rd beginning with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in our church at 2p.m. Reconciliation will be available from 2 to 4 p.m. The Divine Mercy chaplet will be prayed at 3 p.m. and Mass will conclude the feast at 5 p.m.
