From the Pastor's Desk

     On Holy Thursday we celebrated the institution of the Holy Eucharist, The Divine Mandate and the Clerical Priesthood. Two months later, we come together on Sunday to commemorate that gift again. On Holy
Thursday, the celebration was solemn and our attention was focused on Jesus’ death. Today, our celebration proceeds from Pentecost: to be empowered by Christ and to act on behalf ofHim.
     In the New Testament, Jesus presents Himself as the New Moses. According to the ancient prophecies, signs would usher in the time of the New Moses. The first sign was an abundance of wine which was Jesus’ first
miracle at the wedding of Cana. Through Jesus, God gave the people a new sacrificial lamb, a new living water and the bread from heaven that would be food for the journey of life.
