6th Sunday of Easter (Note & Bulletin)

When I became Pastor of St Annie’s in Jamaica I was warned about a difficult person who was not well liked by the others members of the church. She knew this and so she would do things to try to irritate them even more. One of her best techniques was to sing during the Prayers of the Faithful. The more it bothered people, the longer her song.

4th Sunday of Easter (Note & Bulletin)

Last year was my first time presiding at Confirmations. Of the different sacraments, Confirmation is the one that seems downplayed, like in a way it is no big deal, like it is some kind of graduation.


Pastor's Pen, 3rd Sunday of Easter

One of the most interesting things about almost all the first resurrection accounts is that the disciples and apostles did not recognize the Risen Lord.  For example, Mary Magdalene thought he was a gardener; St. Peter though he was a man standing on the beach; and today, two disciples though the Risen Lord was simply an intriguing conversationalist.
