The Lord is Risen! Let us rejoice and be glad!
The Resurrection of Our Lord is His most glorious work! Without the Resurrection we have no faith. The greatest hope that a Christian has is to be with Jesus forever in Eternity. Death is not our end. Eternal life with God is our ultimate dwelling.
The Good News is that Jesus has not only come for us in the flesh but also conquered the sin of death. He forgives us of our sins and invites us to be with Him forever in Heaven.
Certainly, this past year has been a difficult one. Many of us have known those who are gone due to the pandemic. As Christians we do have the hope that we may be reunited with them in Heaven. Let us pray for our perseverance.
We welcome to the Church those who received the sacraments of Christian Initiation during the Easter Vigil. This day for them is the most sacred day of their lives.
I would like to thank our staff and the Knights of Columbus who decorated our parish as a beautiful garden for Almighty God. Special thanks to the priests, sacristans, ushers, lectors, our music director Bill Dione, Al Tepedino, Sabina Lamb and our entire staff for all their service during Holy Week.
Lastly, special thanks to you the parishioners of St. Barnabas. This parish is truly blest with the Love of Jesus and the Heart of His Mother.
In Jesus and Mary,
Fr. Jeff Yildirmaz
