Family Newsletter of Our Lady of Good Counsel

The great celebrations of Holy Week will be upon us soon.  On Holy Thursday,  Jesus offered himself in the form of bread and wine,  instituted priesthood, and washed the feet of his followers,  teaching them by example how we must be a servant for all.  I am awed in the parish by the service of so many,  especially our catechists.  At our annual dinner,  we honored catechists for longevity from forty years to five, with a total of 433 years religious education teaching experience in this parish shared among the honorees.  No other parish can brag of 100 catechists that serve so faithfully year round with such gifts of dedication, fidelity, and longevity.  Please take the time this Easter to thank them all for their incredible gift of service.

Looking Ahead:  April 7:  Registration for summer and RE that week

April 15/16  No Class Holy Week

April 22/23  No Class Easter Week

April 29/30  classes resume for that week only to honor Mary through our annual May Crowning. 

Thank you, also,  for your generosity to Dollar Sunday dedicated to the mission of Jamaica.  I leave with the Parish Mission Team on Easter Sunday Night.  Please keep us in your prayers.

From our home to yours,  may you have a Blessed Holy Week and a Glorious Easter.

First Communions will be celebrated on May 4, 5, and 11.  Details with letters have been sent home.   Call us with any questions.

Gratefully,

Dr. Linda M. Dix

Director of Religious Education
