Blessing of the Baskets & Easter Egg Hunt
Saturday, April 20th at 10:30 AM in the Greenspace
We invite all families to join us for a Blessing of the Easter Baskets. In many Eastern European countries it is a tradition, dating back to the 15th century, to have a basket of food, for your Easter meal, blessed on Holy Saturday or Easter Sunday. The blessing will be followed by an Easter Egg Hunt.

*Due to construction, we are unable to have our usual three Masses in the Hyland Center Gym.

Sunrise Mass at 6:30 AM on the Greenspace

We are extremely grateful for Second Ponce's generosity during this year of construction.
Their two-level sanctuary sits 1,500 in cushioned pews and they have plenty of parking. You can use their front or side entry. If you come in the side, go down the hall and up the stairs. We will have ushers guiding the way.

Each week during Lent, we'll share a video from Bishop Barron's mini series on the
Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues
along with some reflection questions. This is great tool for personal prayer but we encourage you to discuss with your friends, families, or small groups.
Is creating wealth a sin?
According to St. Thomas Aquinas, “the unreasonable or immoderate desire for riches” is the definition of greed and the fifth deadly sin.
Catholic social teaching says we must always have the common good in mind in using our wealth. Generous charity for all is modeled and mandated by God.
Watch this short video to ponder your attitude toward wealth:
“The poor need the rich to draw them out of poverty. The rich need the poor to keep them out of hell,” said Cardinal Francis George. What is your reaction to that statement?
What is the role money plays in your life? How much time do you spend worrying about it? How painful is it to let go of money?
How generous are you with your time, talent, and treasure?
