“and he said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. ‘As the Father sent me, so am I sending you.’ After saying this he breathed on them and said: Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20: 21-22 Daily Health Check
Friday, April 22, 2022
Happy Easter dear Families! He is truly risen! The next few weeks are sure to fly by as we head to June.
In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus commissions His disciples by sending the Holy Spirit and to go forth. We are those disciples, we are being sent forth to share God’s word and proclaim His Kingdom with the Holy Spirit within us. Though Jesus leaves the earth physically, He promises that we will not be alone in the journey.
Our Grade Sevens are getting ready to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in June and they are learning about the responsibility of this gift. My hope is that they see this as a blessing and eagerly share their knowledge with you at home.
Yours In Christ,
Mrs. Maria Fonseca
