E-Bulletin - April 8, 2019
The neighborhood is buzzing with excitement as we get ready for the Cubs season opener at Wrigley Field today and the church is buzzing with excitement as we get ready for Holy Week! The two nearly coincide but to be clear, there is a difference.
Beginning with Palm Sunday this coming Sunday and culminating with the celebration of Easter the following Sunday, we hope this is a time of personal transformation for you as we attend to the mysteries of Christ's life, death, and Ressurection. He showed the example of perfect love. That is why we follow him, hoping our love can grow to be as broad and freely given as His.
Here are a few important notices from the parish for the week ahead.
