It's the EASTER SEASON! Christ is risen! Rejoice and be glad!
I thinks it's significant that the Easter Season lasts longer than the Lenten Season. Sure, we need to repent and get back to the Lord. But, even more inportant, we need to rejoice and celebrate the fact that Jesus has won for us eternal life - happiness forever!
During this Easter Season, St. Paschal Church will be celebrating with those who are receiving their FIRST COMMUNION; those who are graduating from High School - BACCALAUREATE; and we will crown the Blessed Virgin Mary as QUEEN of HEAVEN and EARTH.
REJOICE AND BE GLAD! THE LORD IS RISEN!
