We are nearing Holy Week, the most sacred time of year for Christians. To prepare for Christ’s passion, death and resurrection, students in grades 3-8 received the sacrament of Reconciliation yesterday. We were blessed to have 8 priests present to help with the sacrament.
During Holy Week our 6th grade class will lead us in the Living Stations of the Cross and our 6-8th grade students will participate in a Seder Meal. Deacon Matt Levi of our Diocese is coming to talk with our 6-8th grade students in preparation for the Seder Meal. Deacon Levi is Jewish and has converted to Catholicism and has become a permanent Deacon in the Church. We are blessed to have him share the significance of the Jewish tradition with us and help the students understand the connection between our celebration of the Eucharist and the Jewish Passover Meal.

Not New but Still Important
The Passion from a Medical Perspective by Dr. Tim Millea
March 29 ~ 6:45 pm
The foundation of Christianity is built upon the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the history of mankind, there are approximately eighteen hours that changed everything forever. In that time, Jesus’ acceptance of the path from Gethsemane to Calvary is the foundation of the Christian faith. This presentation is an anatomic and physiologic perspective on the medical condition of Jesus from His arrest to his death. With the use of pathologic and forensic investigations over the centuries since the first Good Friday, a clearer understanding of how and why Jesus died is possible.
