Dear Brother Knights,
By the time that you receive this bulletin, we will be celebrating Easter. Holy Week as you know, is the week which precedes the great Feast of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday. This week includes the last days of Lent and the beginning of the Easter Triduum. During Holy Week, the Church celebrates the mysteries of salvation accomplished by Christ in the last days of His life on earth, beginning with His messianic entrance into Jerusalem.
The Resurrection is the central doctrine of our faith. Historically, it is rooted in Christ, and we wait for the resurrection on the last day. It is a source of hope for all of us and gives our life direction.
For the Resurrection to be experienced, it has to touch all the aspects of our lives, here and now , here and everywhere. We all have our days of Calvary and we all have our days of Resurrection. But it is our belief that there is life after death that sees us through the difficult times. At every Eucharist, we celebrate the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ. This is what we call the Paschal Mystery and this Pascal Mystery is what is experienced in our life.
At this time, I want to wish you and your families a Happy Easter and thank you for all that you do for our Church and the wider community.
Father Dick Bester
