“We have only five loaves of bread and two fish."
"Bring them here to me, He said. He directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied."

20 Rules of Wisdom
1. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.
2. Dear God, I have a problem, it's me.
3. Growing old is inevitable, growing UP is optional.
4. There is no key to happiness. The door is always open.
5. Silence is often misinterpreted but never misquoted.
6. You do the math. Count your blessings.
7. Faith is the ability to not panic.
8. Laugh every day, it's like inner jogging.
9. If you worry, don't pray. If you pray...don't worry.
10. As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling home every day.
11. Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.
12. THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN YOUR HOME ARE THE PEOPLE!
13. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still; God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot.
14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry.
15. He who dies with the most toys is still dead.
16. We do not remember days, but moments. Life is moving too fast -- so enjoy your precious moments.
17. Nothing is real to you until you experience it, otherwise it's just hearsay.
18. It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done.
19. Surviving and living your life successfully requires courage. The goals and dreams you're seeking require courage and risk taking. Learn from the turtle, it only makes progress when it sticks out its neck.
20. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
The 2021 Mass Book is open. This year we are offering the option of reserving Mass Intentions online. Click
to reserve an announced mass intention online.
There will be an opportunity to reserve masses using a paper form starting today. The green form can be found at the back of the church and should be returned to the rectory during business hours.
Please use caution with emails from an unfamiliar email address.
Some Parishioners and Staff recently reported receiving an "urgent" email that appeared to be from Monsignor Dwyer with a statement similar to "I Need Assistance From You, Email Me As Soon As You Get This Message". This is a typical "phishing" email.
Phishing emails are used by cyber criminals to attempt to trick individuals by creating and sending fake emails that appear to be from an authentic source. Such emails are usually poorly written and designed to make you feel a sense of urgency. If you engage with the sender, they may ask you to confirm personal information, open a malicious attachment that infects your computer, or purchase gift cards or perform other financial transactions on their behalf. Do not reply or click any links if you have reason to suspect the email is not legitimate.
Even if you think there’s a possibility that an email from Resurrection is genuine, you should
Contact the Rectory
directly and ask to confirm – do not use any communication method provided in the email.
