A Message from Father John, April 20, 2014
HAPPY EASTER! It is a true blessing that we are able to join together and celebrate the gift of Christ's Death and Resurrection. If we think about all those who have gathered to celebrate for over 2000 years we can truly see hope for the future. Did they have discouragements, worries, concerns, problems and more? That is part of our humanity. They also had the same hope we are given in this day. On behalf of our entire parish and school staff I wish you the hope of the Risen Christ, may you know his presence in your lives. May we continue to live that together handing on the message for those who follow us!
I want to thank all of those who served and did so many things over Lent and in our Easter Celebrations. Most of what happens in our churches does not just happen. It takes people to organize, plan and carry it out. Thank you to all that helped!
Easter is also hope of a new beginning for St. Mary's School. After our committee interviewed a number of candidates we have been able to hire Marilyn Pekol as our new Principal. Marilyn currently serves as Principal at All Saints School in Denmark, WI. We will be telling you more about her in the weeks to come. Thank you for your prayers in this process.
In Christ's Peace
