On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”  After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.  Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”  And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”  John 19:20-23

Pentecost Sunday
The season of Easter concludes with today’s celebration, the feast of Pentecost. On Pentecost we celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles gathered in the upper room in Jerusalem; this event marks the beginning of the Church. Jesus greets his disciples with the gift of peace. Jesus then commissions his disciples to continue the work that he has begun: “As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” He breathes the Holy Spirit upon the disciples and sends them to continue his work of reconciliation through the forgiveness of sins. Jesus’ act of breathing the Holy Spirit upon the apostles mirrors God’s act of breathing life into Adam. In fact, both the Greek and Hebrew words for “spirit” can also be translated as “breath.” This Gospel reminds us that the Church is called to be a reconciling presence in the world. The reconciling presence of Christ is celebrated in the Church’s sacramental life. In the Sacrament of Baptism, we are cleansed of sin and become a new creation in Christ. In the Sacrament of Penance, the Church celebrates the mercy of God through the forgiveness of sins. This reconciling presence is also to be a way of life for Christians. In situations of conflict, we are to be agents of peace and harmony among people.  (Copyright © 2016 Loyola Press.  All Rights Reserved.  Used with permission.  www.loyolapress.com)

Thanks to the generosity of many of our parishioners to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, we have been able to move from maintenance to mission and engage many more lay people in the work of the Church. We are spreading the Good News of our faith not by increasing program budgets but by moving resources to priority ministries. A few new initiatives include: • Revitalization of our Pre-Cana program better assists couples to put Christ at the center of their relationship as they prepare for the Sacrament of Marriage. • A new Lay Formation Program and a worship commission are now in place to offer greater engagement opportunities and diocesan services to families and parishes. • New Parish Staff and Volunteer Lenten Retreats were offered by the Diocese in both the northern and southern parts of the state. Please consider a gift during the In-Pew Phase which saves resources by reducing our mailings. Any gift, no matter the size, counts!
