Our parish has the opportunity to live the Easter message by providing a hot meal to the patrons of St. Vincent De Paul.
4th Sunday of Lent, C19
Most homilies about today’s Gospel focus on the wayward son and the generous mercy of the father. And, well they might. But most of us here at Mass today generally don’t sink to depths of the younger son and try to imitate the conduct of the father. We are more likely to be like the older son in our behavior father.
We are dutiful in our relationship with God, serving God and building God’s kingdom on earth, tilling the soil and tending the vineyard in obedience to God’s commands. But we can be resentful of those who wander off, wasting God’s gifts on their own pursuits. How do we react when we see them return at Easter and/or Christmas? With joy/ or with anger that they are sitting in “our” seat in the pews?
Parishioners and friends of Saint John Fisher Roman Catholic Church, hard at work packaging 23,000 meals to help feed the hungry of Burkina Faso. This land-locked country has recurring drought, pervasive and perennial food insecurity, and limited natural resources resulting in poor economic prospects for the majority of its citizens. Over 150 people gathered together, taking just a few short hours to package so many meals. Our original goal was to raise enough funds for 10,000 meals yet we all came together to more than double our goal!
"Thank you for participating in the CRS Helping Hands event! You packaged thousands of life-saving meals for people in need - and provided families with hope for the future. You may want to read about the projects that are funded through the CRS Helping Hands meal packaging program. Find out how your service impacts those in Burkina Faso by visiting our website or following us on social media."

Our Confirmation community is collecting plastic Easter Eggs and bags of individually wrapped Easter Candy. This is the last weekend to drop your donations at church. Labeled baskets will be at both exit doors. Filled Easter Eggs will be enjoyed by the children at the Catholic Worker House and South Park Shelter, as well as those visiting incarcerated family members on Easter Sunday.
"Peace be with you!" With these words, the Risen Lord greeted his frightened Apostles in the Upper Room on the day of his Resurrection. Christ repeated the words, "Peace be with you." Then he added, "Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them." (Jn 20:19-23) What an extraordinary gift-the gift of divine forgiveness!
This year, prepare for Easter by receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. During Lent, every Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Hartford will be open on Mondays for Lenten Confessions.
