Today from 10am to 1pm we held our Spring Parish Breakfast in the Parish Hall. Several hundred people, including dozens and dozens of children, stopped by to enjoy crafts., egg decorating, breakfast and an early visit from the Easter Bunny!
Thanks to all of the parishioners who worked so hard to make this wonderful event a great success. Everyone had a most enjoyable time because of your dedication. Thank you so much!! Thanks also to the 4th graders and their parents who contributed food for this morning’s breakfast. We could not have done it without your help!
It was most appropriate to celebrate the Spring Breakfast on the same weekend we observe “Laetare” Sunday when the Church allows a little extra room for “rejoicing” even during the observance of the Lenten Season. Laetare Sunday is a time to remember that Easter is coming quickly and this “rejoicing” is meant to help give us hope in these last couple of weeks before Holy Week.
Even the youngest among us donned their Spring Finery!
Families gather in the Parish Hall for the Spring Breakfast.
The “Liturgical” color for Laetare Sunday is “Rose” which just happened to fit in perfectly with the “official” colors of the Spring Breakfast.
Fun was had by all who attended!
The “Golden Girls” enjoy time with the Easter Bunny. These ladies, who have been such an important part of our parish for decades are “young at heart”.
It was a pleasure to see so many parishioners, families and especially young people together this morning enjoying each others’ company, laughing, sharing their faith and just having a good time together.
I must say, a great “community spirit” was evident today both at Mass and at the breakfast following and I, for one, am so proud to be a part of this very special community of faith. I hope you are too! God bless you all!
