May the grace and peace of our Good and Gracious God be with you!
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!
We continue our celebration of Easter joy. I encourage you to not let this season of grace pass you by. This season of Easter is a reminder to us how much Jesus loved the Father and us. It is a reminder to us that his death and resurrection opened the gates of heaven to all believers. As people of faith we should be filled with gratitude and joy. Our daily prayer should be giving thanks to Jesus for all he did, and continue to do, for us.
Secondly, we have to share our joy and gratitude with others. Just as the apostles shared their joy with others, we must do the same. We can’t keep Jesus, ourjoy, to ourselves. When we share our joy, or witness to others what Jesus did for us, we are evangelizing. We now become Christ’s mouth piece, his feet and energy in bringing others to Him, and to our community. Be alight and voice for Christ.
Finally, we continue to welcome new members into our faith community. Today we witness two more people professing their faith in Christ, and asking to follow Christ as a member of the Catholic faith. Join me in welcoming them, and praying for them as they continue their spiritual journey with St. Cyprian family toward the kingdom of God.
Happy Easter Season!
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.
