Welcome to Corpus Christi Catholic Community

Parish and School

HOLY WEEK, 2015

Dear Friends:

The Church embarks on that mystery of faith that is called simply "Holy Week." As we join in this annual sacred observance, let us do so with our minds and hearts uplifted in praise of the God who has invited us to share the riches of the Kingdom. As Jesus hung upon the cross, he told the repentant thief "today you shall be with me in paradise." The saving death and resurrection of Jesus is our invitation to be with him in paradise. Participating in the ceremonies and celebrations of Holy Week provides us with one means to celebrate the Kingdom that has been won for us in Jesus. Let us make it our aim to walk with Christ during this week called "holy" so that, having died with him, we might also rise with him. Have a wonderful and prayerful Holy Week and a Blessed and Happy Easter. God bless you!   --Father Daryl

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION: Throughout Holy Week, there are many opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession). Confessions will begin at the scheduled times and continue for as long as there are people waiting to go to Confession. If none of these scheduled times are convenient for you, call the parish office (272-9982) to arrange a time for your Easter Confession.
