Principal Corner

Holy Thursday Talk about it: The Eucharist is the central sacrament in our Catholic faith. Talk about our Catholic belief that we receive the real presence of the risen Jesus in Holy Communion. How does this encounter with Jesus change us?

Good Friday Talk about it: It is OK to feel sad on Good Friday. Jesus’ death on the cross is a sacrifice like no other; he died to teach us about everlasting life. Talk about friends and family who may have died and how we believe that, because of Jesus, we hope to rise to new life in heaven.

Holy Saturday Talk about it: The Easter Vigil begins with the symbol of fire. Talk about how fire represents that Jesus is the light of the world. He brings light to the darkness and new life to a sleeping world. What are some other symbols of resurrection?

Easter Sunday Celebrate the risen Lord with the singing of the Gloria and alleluias, the renewal of baptismal vows, a sprinkling with Easter water, and receiving the Eucharist.

May you enjoy a blessed Holy Week and a Glorious Easter season!
