Fr. Ron’s Reflections: April 7, 2024

Today, the Sunday within the Octave of Easter, is also Divine Mercy Sunday. Divine Mercy opens our hearts to the mercy and forgiveness that flow from the heart of Jesus. Please take note of information found elsewhere in this issue of Harvest News and, if possible, join us for at least some of the service. We are grateful to the members of our Divine Mercy Prayer Group for organizing our liturgy.

Our recently organized Adults with Disabilities Group has gotten off to a great start. The Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine parties were well attended and great fun was had by all. The next event is a Circus-themed party on April 18. If you are or know someone with disabilities I encourage you to check out the Group by contacting Beth Beebe in the parish office.

The Solemnity of the Annunciation is usually celebrated on March 25, nine months before Christmas. However, because that date fell during Holy Week this year, the feast was transferred to tomorrow, April 8. This is a powerful Marian Feast, as we celebrate Mary’s “fiat” which led to her conceiving Jesus. We encourage you to join us at the 8:00 AM Mass to honor Mary and pray to follow her example of humility and trust.
