Dear friends in Christ,
The beauty of the flowers bursting forth from their beds and the trees all around us budding with new growth and color in these recent days heightens our Easter joy and helps us to bear the continued challenges we are enduring with the pandemic. These signs of life give us hope that a new season is upon us and make us want to get outside and to enjoy life. It is time to celebrate new life! Please join our parish community this Sunday, April 25, from 1 - 5 p.m. at the Fatima Catholic Outreach Center on Street Road for the first annual Spring Festival and the Grand Opening of a new season for the Community Garden. There will be food, games, prizes, music, and activities for children - fun for the whole family. Please see this flyer for details. I thank those members of our community who have adopted a garden plot and are cultivating new life and beauty in our "backyard". Beauty is what sustains us and makes our community a place we can call "home".
May the new life that Jesus has given us through his resurrection continue to bless us in these days with peace and joy!
Sincerely in Christ,
