Our mission and goal, is to keep everyone informed about the events and activities taking place at St. Cyprian Catholic Church. Along with posting our parish activities, our mission is to offer readers opportunities to be aware of the Catholic Church on the national level. Check out what the National Black Catholic Congress is doing or what the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is doing. Click on Catholic Resources and open up to surprising information about the Catholic Church across the nation and the world!
I want to thank everyone who participated in our Parish Revival. Once again, it was filled with joy, inspiration, and highly spirited. Each night Fr. Maurice Nutt left us with spiritual food and enthusiasm. Now that the revival is over, continue to be revived—read your bible, listen to spiritual music, acknowledge Christ daily, and attend Mass weekly. A special thank you to all the Choirs, Mitchell Thomas Praise Dancers, Ushers, those involved in the revival, and to the Hospitality and Planning Committees.
We now look forward to Holy week. This is a wonderful time for us to connect with Jesus and be reminded why we follow Him. Attend the services during the three days of Holy Week. I also encourage you to participate in our Parish Penance Service, to be held April 1st . You can fulfill your Easter Duty at that Penance Service.
We continue to hear the theme of covenant in our readings for Mass today. Just as Christ made a covenant with the Father to lead all believers to the Kingdom, may we continue our covenant with the Father and the Son. Open your mind and heart to God the Father and Son, allow them to dwell within you, live their message and assist them in drawing others to the Father and Son.
Almighty God, we are reminded through your servant Saint Cyprian, of your Spirit always within us and your Continued Presence in us, and of our oneness with You and the Church. May we always grow together and profess You in Faith, Unity, and Hope. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
