Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Happy Easter! He is Risen!

The empty tomb is the perfect evidence that our Lord is truly Risen. Like the disciples we will rejoice and be glad, the Lord has done good things for us. The Risen Lord has vanquished darkness and new light is dawning. Thanks be to God, Halleluiah!

My soul glorifies the Lord, for you have done great things in our parish. I would like to express my profound gratitude to all you who have been journeying with us as community of disciples. We had been very successful in all our activities and programs because of your kind support. We are truly blessed to have a Community of Disciples willing to Witness to Jesus in many ways. I can’t find a word to express how grateful I am.

As we move forward, we are facing new challenges in our parish. We are still paying our debts for the repair and maintenance and repainting of our church. The installation of the new carpet is coming very soon. Our source of funds is coming from our second collection and generous benefactors. The funds collected from the commemorative book helped to off-set our expenses incurred in our celebration.

Just heads up, we are now looking for dedicated parishioner to become a member of Parish Hall committee to help us realize our vision of having a place of gathering aside from the church. This will be an ambitious project and will require everyone’s prayers & participation.

Once again, I would like to appeal to your gracious hearts to continue to be more generous. Rest assured that we will continue to keep our church a comfortable place of worship. Thank you, for sharing your Time, Talent and Treasure. Our Risen Lord will always remember what you have done for Him.
