**Note Change in Weekday Mass Schedule – Mass at Assumption will be on Monday at 10:00 a.m. rather than on Tuesday for the coming week (Fr. Dave is offering Mass at Frene Valley on Tuesday).

“We have been proclaiming ‘Christ is Risen’ in our liturgy for two weeks already. How have we been proclaiming this ‘Good News’ with our lives? I pray that day in and day out we have been striving to live this our faith in our words, actions, deeds, at home and at work, with family and friends, and in everything we do.
     “One possible way is by attending daily Mass. This is by no means a commandment, like keeping Sunday holy by attending Mass, but is just an opportunity for us all. Of course, those who work or are in school would have a difficult time and are not expected, so it would be those retired, or who are home during the day, that we invite to daily Mass. This is also, of course, a vocation – a calling to spend this extra time with God. So look into your heart and see if maybe Jesus is asking you to attend a daily Mass more frequently.”…Fr. Dave

PSR Schedule – April 13–end of year party; April 20--closing Mass.

Keep in Your Prayers Max McKague, Jack Schollmeyer, and Jaxon Wuelling who will be making their First Holy Communion next Sunday, April 17, at MPH.  Everyone is invited to a reception in MPH hall immediately after 8:00 a.m. Mass to celebrate with and congratulate our First Communicants.
