As we continue our celebration of Easter I would like to thank so many people that made our Holy Week and Easter celebration so very meaningful, prayerful and beautiful. The first thank you goes to Anna and Tony Stein and our sacristans Nancy Kielton and Margaret Suter. I don't know if people truly realize how much work goes into six days of changing landscape over Holy Week into Easter. Each day is so different. Things are put up in the morning taken down after the service and the next day start over.
You are invited to attend a Day of Reflection at St. Francis Convent. Mishawaka (across from Marian High School) on Wednesday, May 1, from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The theme for the day is "Followers of Jesus." Please bring your bible. The cost of the day is $20.00 and includes lunch. Please register by Friday, April 26, by calling Sister Barbara Anne Hallman at 259-5427.
The Gabriel Project receives donations of clothing and baby items from Once Upon a Child. We have an abundance of donations that need sorting according to sizes. If you have a couple of hours a week or each month that you could donate to this need we would welcome the help. We have a dedicated area in the Cathedral Center next door to the Church. Please call Ginger at 574.286.2413 if interested.

Bishop Kevin Rhoades invites all priests, sisters, brothers, deacons and lay people of the diocese to attend this Mass. At this Mass the Holy Chrism is consecrated and the Oil of Catechumens and Oil of the Sick are blessed. This beautiful Mass manifests the communion of the priests with their bishop in the same priesthood and ministry of Christ.

In many parts of the world Christians, even at the risk of their own lives, do not cease to proclaim the Gospel of Christ’s peace. This strong, nonviolent witness of our brothers and sisters helps us to understand the meaning of the Cross of Jesus, of His Passion and Resurrection.
