A Message From Fr. Wayne

Next weekend, we will together enter into a week which we call holy.  The events that will unfold beginning with the entrance of Christ into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.  Like the crowds of old, we will cry out Hosanna!  Then we will be led to the Upper Room on Holy Thursday where we will witness Jesus humble washing the feet of His disciples and instituting the Eucharist.  From there, we will walk the way of the Cross with Jesus on Good Friday.  There we will stand with Mary and the Beloved Disciple at the foot of His Cross and witness the depths of His love for us.  Then, we shall enter into the silence of Holy Saturday as Christ will be placed in the tomb.  That silence, however, will be shattered on Easter Sunday, when we cry out Alleluia, He has Risen! This week is indeed holy because of the events that Christ will undergo for love of us and for our salvation.  Enter it with a sense of gratitude.
