Happy Fourth Sunday of Easter and welcome to Fr. Bob Kieffer! We continue to rejoice in Christ’s Resurrection. This particular Easter Sunday is also sometimes known as Good Shepherd Sunday, and World Day of Prayer for Vocations. The Good Shepherd Jesus has promised to never leave His flock, His Church untended. But we all need to help by tending the “flock” entrusted to us….our “family flock”, our “parish flock” and our community. And we need to respond generously when the Shepherd calls us into service of the Church as priests, religious, deacons and dedicated laypersons.
Think for a minute the difference it would make on a given Sunday if the ushers or the musicians didn't show up and do their ministry….or if there wasn’t a lector at Mass, or all the Eucharistic ministers slept in! Think if we had no one like Peggy, our pastoral associate, or our Stephen Ministers reaching out to the sick, the elderly, those in need of special support and companionship….in a more positive light, think of the difference that all of our lay leadership and ministry groups DO make in helping us maintain a vibrant community of faith where we can all come to know and serve Christ! Thanks for carefully listening to the voice of the Shepherd and responding with a willing heart.
Next Sunday, April 29 at 2:00 p.m. we will celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation with Bishop Donald Kettler. Young people of our parish and the surrounding area will be strengthened and filled with the Holy Spirit so they may be led forth in faith throughout their lives. All are welcome (the group this year isn’t “large”). Pray for our Confirmation candidates, their sponsors, parents and families to all have a Spirit filled celebration!
