4th Sunday of Easter

Published on May 1st, 2012 by Austin Keith | 0

During this Easter Season we continue our journey with the very young beginnings of our Church. The Acts of the Apostles gives us an “inside” look at the apostles “finding their way” through the miracles that they were able to perform in the powerful name of the Lord Jesus. With new found confidence, Peter led the group of believers, in the midst of terrible persecutions, into a strong and faith filled community. Following the “Good Shepherd” with His promise of never abandoning them, our Church developed, from this humble beginning, to the most powerful and most recognized in the world. Because of this, each of us are challenged to spread the good news of Jesus Christ, Risen from the dead, the only Son of God, the one that God the Father allowed to conquer death, death on a cross.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish our “snow birds” safe passage back to their “other” homes. Please know that we will keep each of you in our prayers and look forward to seeing you soon. We will also miss your kind generosity. I would ask that you consider supporting our parish year round. As you are aware, church attendance during the summer months drops off as vacations with long weekend breaks with our full time parishioners, so your absence is even more noticeable. Unfortunately, our parish expenses do continue year round. Thus, your consistent financial support of our parish is vital to achieving our mission to the larger community of Palm Coast.  The easiest way to be sure that your gift of treasure reaches us, even when you are absent, is through electronic offertory giving. Please call the office for additional details.

May God Bless you in your travels and know that we will “keep the lights on” anxiously awaiting your return!
Fr. John
