Christ, our light, is risen! Alleluia!

Wishing you a joyful Easter season!
 
Palm Sunday, March 25, marked the beginning of Holy Week and commemorated Jesus’ triumphant entrance into Jerusalem where he was welcomed as a king by crowds worshiping him and laying down palm leaves before him.
 
During Holy Week we retraced the steps of Jesus and his followers from his arrival in Jerusalem through his suffering and death on the cross to his resurrection which we now celebrate, and through which we find salvation from sin and death.
 

 Bishop Walkowiak's Easter Message

 
 
Our observance of Lent, which began Ash Wednesday, Feb. 14, officially came to a close when the evening Mass of the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday began. The Mass of the Lord's Supper made way for the Easter triduum, the shortest and holiest liturgical season of the Church year. 

Guidelines for fasting and abstinence during the Easter triduum

(English | Español)
 
For Catholics, as well as many other Christians, the celebration of Easter isn’t an isolated event that happens one Sunday each spring. Every Sunday is an Easter for us, a celebration of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. But the observance of Easter itself is the culmination of a whole week of significant religious observances and spiritual renewal. (excerpt from the USCCB's "Fact of Faith: Holy Week" by Father Larry Rice)
 
We extend a warm welcome to new Catholics joining the Church on Holy Saturday during the Easter Vigil - especially to the 160 catechumens and 210 candidates in our diocese. If you've been away from the Church for a while, we invite you to return during the season of Easter. Locate a parish near you using our parish list.
