"Alleluia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!"
Wow! What a wonderful whirlwind of a week and weekend we’ve had at Saints Mary and Martha! We prayed the Stations of the Cross on Wednesday, celebrated The Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday (including the stripping of the Altar and Sanctuary), gathered for The Solemn Liturgy of Our Lord’s Passion on Good Friday (with Holy Communion from the reserve Sacrament at the Altar of Repose), participated in the Montgomery County Homeless Coalition’s “Trade Fair” on Holy Saturday, celebrated The Great Vigil of Easter after sunset on Holy Saturday, and then rejoiced in celebrating Mass on The Feast of Our Lord’s Resurrection on Sunday!!!
Here are a couple from pictures of Bonnie, Sandra, and Alice (with Pete and Liz providing support) at the “Trade Fair”…
Here is the video from Mass on The Feast of Our Lord’s Resurrection…
Please keep us prayer over the next couple of weeks! We are in the final stages of planning for the open house that will introduce “Children’s Guardian Angels” to the community. In fact, we’re already receiving support and help – even before we’ve officially announced the ministry! The need for this ministry is genuine and so very wide-spread in Montgomery County.
Please pray: 1. That God will bring us those who most need this ministry; 2. That God will raise up people with needed talents and resources to help these folks (beyond what we’ve already assembled), and; 3. That those who participate (both ministry recipients and helpers) will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ if they do not already have a personal relationship with him.
If you would like to receive fliers to distribute to people who may need what we’re offering in “Children’s Guardian Angels”, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org! Also, please keep us in your prayers as we begin talks with a crisis pregnancy center regarding a partnership with them at Bethany House!
Please keep us close in your prayers, and may the Good News of Jesus’ resurrection fill your hearts and minds to overflowing!
Laudetur Jesus Christus! (Praised be Jesus Christ!)
