From all of us here at St. Francis de Sales, Happy Easter!  Happy, however, does not seem like a big enough word to describe what Easter truly means.  In Christ’s resurrection our very existence takes on new meaning and purpose.

Easter 2014In Christ, we have the eternal promise of new life in Him.  We know that no matter what disease, pain, affliction, or sin, which with we currently suffer, Christ has defeated it and we will have eternal freedom and joy.  This is true hope.  This is true joy.

Let the gift of Christ’s joy, the same joy that strengthened Him to endure the cross, fill you to overflow this Easter season.  Let hope be renewed in your heart.

As the world gathers for his canonization this weekend, let us remember the words of Blessed John Paul the Great,  “Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.”

Have a Joyful Easter.
Fr. Joseph, Fr. Jublas and staff

    Thank you for keeping our Parish’s Good Friday tradition of signing the Passion. So beautiful with the discordant, mournful sopranos; brings me to tears every year.

    It was the first time I ever attended The Easter Vigil service, and I know now what I have been missing! It was truly an experience!..I have recommended it to others.
