As you know, the last couple of weeks, have been quite busy with different parish activities; the first, the trip to attend the annual LA RE Congress; the second, the annual confirmation retreat, which was held at the Sacramento Methodist Assembly, near Cloudcroft. Both of these events were quite good; we were able to take 21 folks from the parish to the Congress and at the confirmation retreat we had a total of 45 participants. I hope to be able to share some highlights this weekend.
This weekend we begin Holy Week, beginning with Palm Sunday, and then are invited to participate in the season of Triduum. Triduum consists of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter—which is seen as just one seamless liturgical event. If you're able, please consider being present for the different liturgies, as we prepare to welcome the elect (those who have been preparing for admission into full communion into our church) at the Easter vigil.
