John told two of his disciples that Jesus is the Lamb of God. They turned and followed Him, immediately curious and attracted to Him. Andrew told his brother Simon about Jesus. Simon also came to meet Jesus, who renamed him Cephas, or Peter.
A Prayer for Our New President
Heavenly Father, I am your humble servant,
I come before you today in need of hope.
I need hope for a calm and joyful future.
I need hope for love and kindness.
I pray for peace and safety.
Some say that the sky is at its
darkest just before the light.
I pray that this is true, for today seems stormy and dim.
I need your light, Lord, in every way.
I pray to be filled with your light.
Help me to walk in your light, and live
my life in faith and service.
In your name, I pray. Amen.
What better way is there to share Catholic teaching with your young child, than with the words of our Pope?
Pope Francis gives children the lifelong gift of knowing in their hearts that God created us and loves us no matter what.
Click below for more info on this children's book. You will see inspiring words and vibrant illustration in Pope Francis' book "
Pope Francis Says…"
It shows children how to live as Christians and know they are loved by God. The Holy Father provides concrete examples for children to follow that will instill feelings of confidence, joy, and love.

Parish Religious Education classes
will not be returning to in-person instruction in January as we had hoped
Although we are disappointed by this development, the safety of our students, parents, and catechists is our first priority.
e will continue with our remote learning plan until the end of Easter break.
At that point, we will reassess the situation and determine if we can return to in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year. We sincerely appreciate the time and effort that students are taking with their studies and are grateful for the support that parents are providing during this difficult time.
Many people are inquiring about
CYO basketball for 2021. The news that we have received from the CYO office, is that there is a possibility of a CYO Spring league.
(April May and June)
We will keep you posted.
There is light at the end of the tunnel.
SUPPORTING OUR MISSION
A big “thank you” to all of those participating in online giving with We Share! Online giving has been a big help to our parish. Resurrection has received more consistent donations and been able to re-prioritize office tasks. We Share saves the administrative staff valuable time with its ability to accept credit and debit cards and to make automatic withdrawals from checking and savings accounts. This means more time to serve you and our mission as a parish. No matter how you give, your gifts are always appreciated! If you have not yet made the switch to online giving, we invite you to consider doing so. Online giving offers our parish a stable, sustainable future. We know that you share in this vision and we’re excited about giving our parishioners many ways to participate in our growth as a parish family. Thank you for your support!
