Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.


How can I come to grasp more fully the meaning of my baptism?

WOMEN'S GENESIS OF EVE CONFERENCE May 13- 15. Come to the Well is a unique opportunity for Catholic women to find greater meaning and purpose in their lives through Christ. Join us for a weekend of spiritual encounter, intellectual empowerment, and apostolic evangelization. This conference, rooted in our Catholic faith, will provide a weekend away from the demands of life and offer spiritual encounter through prayer and testimonies, intellectual empowerment via educational tracks and evangelization via meeting and talking with the women of the diocese. The goal of this weekend is to create an environment where women of all ages can deepen their personal relationship with Christ. To register visit:

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION - An ancient title for this Sunday is Dominica in Albis, or “Sunday in White.”

During the Easter Vigil, the newly baptized are invested with a white garment, a sign that they have put on Christ. At one time, the garments were worn for a full week of celebration and reflection, and on this Sunday the newly baptized would appear in their robes again in their new place among the faithful for Eucharist.

In later centuries, the energy of new life at Easter was largely forgotten, and this Sunday was renamed “Quasimodo

Sunday,” or “Low Sunday.” In recent years, with the recovery of the insight that Easter is the privilegedtime for celebrating and renewing baptism, there is nothing “Low” about this Sunday. At a week’s distance, the beauty and grace of our Easter celebration is sustained by joyful alleluias, the blessing and sprinkling of holy water, and the comfort of the Lord’s presence to us. He is risen, and he summons us together, opening up the scriptures for us, breaking the bread, filling us with new life.
