Sunday, May 10, 2020 Resurrection Church Bulletin
1. Our parish conducts an online giving procedure called “WESHARE” and about 340 families already contribute to the parish this way. Feel free to continue to contribute to the Easter collection and the Catch-Up Collection on “WESHARE”. If interested in making a one-time gift or signing up for weekly “WESHARE” online offerings
or you can call Kelly or Julie from the rectory and they will walk you through it for your convenience.
2. Last month, we mailed you our annual Easter letter with an extra Easter offering envelope and "Catch Up" envelope for your consideration. We are extremely pleased with the very positive reaction and reception to our appeal. Under these pressing circumstances, we are happy to report that we are at 73% of our 2019 Easter Collection. This is impressive! We have suspended weekly collections since March 15th. The cost of managing our parish has not disappeared. Our monthly payroll for 80 employees is staggering.
We appeal for your help in the Catch-Up collection!
Please return these envelopes in the enclosed self-addressed envelope by mail. If you would like to drop off your donation to the rectory, you may do so by using the Back Door and put it in the secure mail slot.

Suggested Reading During the Quarantine by Fr. David Barton:
“The Life of Christ”
by Fulton J. Sheen (1958)
Widely proclaimed a classic work of Christian faith,
Life of Christ
has been hailed as the most eloquent of Fulton J. Sheen's many books. The fruit of many years of reflection, prayer, and research, it is a dramatic and moving recounting of the birth, life, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ.
“With God in Russia”
by Walter Ciszek (1964)
A classic memoir of an American-born Jesuit priest imprisoned for fifteen years in a Soviet gulag during the height of the Cold War—a poignant and spiritually uplifting story of extraordinary faith and fortitude as indelible as
“Small Fry: A Memoir”
by Lisa Brennan-Jobs (2018)
Small Fry is Lisa Brennan-Jobs’s poignant story of childhood and growing up as Steve Job’s daughter. Scrappy, wise, and funny, young Lisa is an unforgettable guide, marveling at the particular magic of growing up in this family, in this place and time, while grappling with her feelings of illegitimacy and shame.

FROM THE STAFF AT RESURRECTION SCHOOL
GRADITUDE FOR MY MOTHER
Dear Lord, today I turn to you to give you thanks for my mother. With your own gift of life, she bore me in her womb and gave me life. She tenderly, patiently cared for me and taught me to walk and talk. She read to me and made me laugh. No one delighted in my successes more; no one could comfort me better in my failures. I am so grateful for how she mothered me and mentored me, and even disciplined me. Most of all, Lord, on this Mother's Day, give my mother the graces she most needs and desires today. I ask you this, in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior forever and ever. Amen.
This is the 5th Sunday of Easter. The Gospel this week focuses on the time when Jesus is telling his disciples that he is leaving. Jesus explains that he is going to prepare a place for them and then promises to return for them. Jesus tells His disciples they know the way. Thomas says in confusion, “we do not know where you are going, so how could we know the way.” Jesus replies “I am the way, the truth and the life!”
