Easter Sunday is a day all about seeking. The early Christian
communities gathered around the Apostles, seeking more about the life
and ministry of the Lord Jesus. Saint Paul told the baptized Colossians to
“seek what is above.” Mary of Magdala went to the tomb, seeking to find
the Lord’s body so that she could anoint it. We come to church on Easter
Sunday seeking many things. For some of us, this is a once‑a‑year
journey, when we seek connection with the foundations of the Christian
faith. For others, this day is the culmination of a long journey of Lenten
repentance. For the newly baptized, this is the first day of a new life filled
with promise and expectation. Whatever it is that we seek, let us be
inspired by the disciple whom Jesus loved who, when he saw the
wrappings of cloth inside the empty tomb, “saw and believed.”

I would like to thank Fr. Chris and the
Parish Council for arranging the OPEN
HOUSE on 29 March, Sunday as I celebrate
my 50th Birthday this year and completing
20th Anniversary of my Priestly Ordination. It was so
kind of you all to make it a big event. I cherish it in
mind as I complete 50 years in life and 20 years in the
service of God and his people. I thank sincerely you
all who graced the occasion by your valuable
presence, greeting cards and gifts.
My birthday falls on 7 April (the day I fly to India for
my annual vacation and celebrations of 60 th Wedding
Anniversary of my parents: Mathew and Anna,
50th birthday and 20th Ordination Anniversary-28
December 1994). I return on 21 May 2015. I know for
sure that you all will say a small prayer for my safe
journey home and return. Hope to bring you some
warm weather from India as I return!

Where does the Easter Bunny get his eggs?
From Eggplants
Why do we paint Easter eggs?
Because it's easier than trying to wallpaper them!
