Religious Education Program
I hope this newsletter finds you and your family in good health and a good frame of mind this Holy Week as we enter into the holiest 3 days of the year... The Triduum. I enjoyed seeing parents with their children during our family sessions over these past few weeks. I hope that you enjoyed spending this special time with your child and with the other parents. Believe me these years with your children will go fast, you'll wonder where they went, and you'll be glad for these moments that you spent with them.
One of the central concepts of our faith that I talked about during our sessions was the Paschal Mystery. The link will bring you to a summary of what we mean by Paschal Mystery, and how we enter into to it during Holy Week. The Paschal Mystery, which the HolyTriduum enables us to relive, is not only the memory of a past reality; it is also a reality in our time. Christ also conquers sin and death today with his love. Evil in all its forms does not have the last word. The final triumph, the triumph of truth and love, is Christ's! If we are willing to suffer and die with Him, St Paul will remind us in the Easter Vigil that His life will become our life (cf. Rom 6:9). Our Christian life is supported by and built upon this certainty.
I hope that you and your family will all take part devoutly in the Easter Triduum, to taste the joy of Easter with all your loved ones.
Together in Christ,
