INTRODUCTION TO THE LITURGY – Growth in Faith: The Sunday readings during the Easter cycle take a difference tack. They are not woven together in the way to which we are accustomed. All three readings deal with the effects of the resurrection both on the individual believer and on the community as whole. The first reading from the Acts of the Apostles the Spirit’s lead. The gospel, generally taken from John, speaks of the Spirit’s action in guiding the human soul to its destiny. The second reading, generally taken from Peter or John, reinforces this gospel direction. There are three brief summaries of early reading in the A B C cycles. Faith grows as a new community begins to evolve, just as it grows in the soul of an incredulous Thomas.

FROM THE RECTOR’S DESKThe fifty days from Easter to Pentecost have been described as “One Great Easter Day”. Let us continue our celebration of Easter in a spirit of joy and hope, rejoicing in the new eternal life that is ours because “Jesus is Risen”.

I want to express my sincerest gratitude to all of you for your generosity to the parish at Easter time and the Diocesan Missionary and Development Collection. May God bless and reward you.
