What about Palm Sunday? Branches of palm, olive, or even budding willow, are ancient symbols of victory, hope and even new life.
Today the organ will retake its rightful place in our liturgy. As we gather we sing a triumphant “Hosanna, loud Hosanna” to signal Christ’s entry to Jerusalem with our organ ringing out and encouraging our voices.
This simple statement and these humble branches excite us, just as they excited the onlookers that day so long ago. Yet, in a few short days we will hear, once again, the call “Crucify him!”
As we enter Holy Week, Palm Sunday teaches us to trust in God’s wisdom. His plan, where all apparent failure, yields to the ultimate triumph of life over death.

Hall Air Conditioning Project
For many years we have all known that we need an air conditioning system in both the Old Hall and New Hall, as well as the kitchen. Now is the time. Our parish is receiving proposals for a new system. Many individuals and several groups have expressed interest in helping to make this a reality. In the next few weeks we will have the cost for this project and we will inform everyone as to the total. If we can comfortably use our facilities throughout the year, we all will benefit.
Please pray for the success of this project and start thinking about how you and any group you are a part of can help us realize our goal of having an air conditioning system in the hall and kitchen. For questions please call David at 524-7421.

SECURITY
For security our parking lot gates will be closed at 8:15 am on school days. The sliding gate between the old hall and Church will remain closed. If you are attending weekday morning Mass we ask that you please park on the street or the parking lot in front of the school.

We have an ongoing need for pancake mix and syrup, oatmeal, Hamburger/ Tuna Helper, canned meals, canned vegetables and fruits, and boxed side dishes.
