The Promise of Giving
In an effort to keep from depleting our food supply at our Food Pantry we need your help. Beginning next month, April, we will
begin “The Promise of Giving” food collection project. This project enables everyone in the parish to play an active part in ending
the dreadful epidemic of hunger in our community. Every first Sunday, we will provide brown bags with a list of items we need in
our pantry for that particular month, attached to the bag. There will be someone distributing the bags after each Mass. This is strictly
on a volunteer basis, so please don’t feel obligated. The Word of God says, “Give according to the blessings of your life.” If you feel
that you’ve been blessed, then we ask that you please be a blessing to someone else by taking a bag, purchase the items included on
the list, place the items in the bag, and at some point during that month when you come to Mass, place the bag in the St. Vincent de
Paul food box located in the vestibule of the church. We can’t beat God’s giving no matter how we try. Let’s unite together and
eliminate hunger in our Community.

From The Pastor’s Desk:
Palm Sunday always reminds me that life is one big paradox. Jesus stated this paradox in one of his teachings when he said: Unless
a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies it remains a single grain, but if it dies, it produces much fruit (Jn 12 24). He also taught
this: He who seeks his life will lose it but he who loses his life for my sake will find it (Mt 10:39).
Every year we narrate the story of Palm Sunday because, we want to recall the event that saved us and brought us a pledge of eternal
life and glory, to relive the experience in order to draw strength for our own suffering and daily dying, and to build up our hope in
God and what he has promised. When we die to self we live for God. Let us ask God for the grace to go through our daily transformation which prepares us for eternal life.
On Easter Tuesday, April 2, 2013, I will travel home to Nigeria to visit with my family. I will be back in the Parish on May 3, 2013.
Please pray for my safe trip.
Please keep the bulletin insert of the schedule of events for Holy Week and consult it as needed. There will be no morning Mass on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Holy Week. I strongly encourage all parishioners to attend the Holy Week ceremonies with a spirit of devotion and reverence for God who loves us so much. Thank you and God bless you today, and everyday.
Fr. John Ayang, S.O.L.T.
Sunday Spiritual Thoughts
We are now in the most dramatic celebration of the year wherein the King, Jesus Christ, who is so well praised and adorned in his
entrance to Jerusalem, is to be hung on the cross; the Lord of heaven and earth, Jesus Christ. is to be lorded by his supposedly servants. However, the dramatic story of Jesus is ultimately conquered by his relentless humbling of himself through suffering and
death by offering of his life on the cross. Can we give the gifts (talents and charism) of ourselves to God and his church without
reservation as Jesus did on the cross?
This Gospel story of Jesus in this Palm Sunday celebration requires us to have a good amount of faith so as to make the story relevant in ourselves. We can be led by the story of Jesus into his life itself, if we start to believe that Jesus suffers and dies for us, because he loves us and he wants to save us. Jesus expects us to become part of his life story and not spectators. Can we give the
same amount of love and faith to Jesus? Yes we can, by our humble service to others, by our personal and communal efforts, and by
our growth in our sacramental life.
The individual conversations that Jesus made with his listeners up until he was hung on the cross appeared that his ministering mercy was to the very end and it should encourage us to build up our trust in him. To whom shall we go and put our trust in all of our
trials, persecutions and death? To Jesus!

Reflexión de la mayordomía
“El señor God me ha dado una lengua bien entrenada que puedo saber(conocer) cómo decir(hablar) al cansado una palabra que
los despertará,” dice Isaiah en la primera lectura de hoy. Dan igualmente los regalos que God nos ha dado para el bien de otros.
¿Cómo uso mis regalos?
Ver a Isaiah 50:4
Del Escritorio de Pastor:
El Domingo de Ramos siempre me recuerda que la vida es una paradoja grande. Jesús declaró esta paradoja en una de sus enseñanzas cuando dijo: A Menos que un grano de trigo se caiga a la tierra(razón) y muera permanece un grano solo, pero si muere, produce mucha fruta (Jn 12 24). También enseñó esto: Que busca su vida la perderá pero que pierde su vida por mí lo encontrará (Mt.
10:39).
Cada año relatamos la historia del Domingo de Ramos porque, queremos recordar el acontecimiento que nos salvó y nos trajo una
promesa de vida eterna y gloria, para volver a vivir la experiencia a fin de dibujar(retirar) la fuerza para nuestro propio sufrimiento y
diariamente morir, y aumentar nuestra esperanza en Dios y lo que ha prometido. Cuando morimos a mí vivimos para Dios. Vamos a
pedir a Dios la gracia de pasar por nuestra transformación diaria que nos prepara para la vida eterna.
Durante la Pascua el martes, 2 de abril de 2013, viajaré a casa a Nigeria para visitar con mi familia. Estaré de vuelta en la Parroquia

Por favor guarde el encarte del boletín del horario de acontecimientos durante la Semana Santa y consúltelo como necesario. No habrá ninguna misa de mañana el jueves, el viernes y el sábado de la Semana Santa. Fuertemente animo a todos los feligreses a asistir a
las ceremonias de la Semana Santa con un espíritu de lealtad y reverencia para Dios que nos ama tanto. Gracias y Dios te bendiga
hoy, y diario.

Domingo Insperaciones del Espiritu
Estamos ahora en la celebración más dramática del año en donde el rey, Jesucristo, que tan bien se elogia y se embellece en su entrada a Jerusalén, se debe colgar en la cruz; el Señor de cielo y tierra, Jesucristo. debe ser lorded por su supuestamente criados. Sin embargo, la historia dramática de Jesús es por último conquistada por su humillación implacable de sí a través de sufrimiento y muerte
ofreciendo de su vida en la cruz. ¿Podemos dar los regalos (talentos y charism) de nosotros a Dios y su iglesia sin reservas como
Jesús hizo en la cruz?
Esta historia del Evangelio de Jesús en esta celebración del Domingo de Ramos requiere que nosotros tengamos una cantidad buena
de la fe para hacer la historia relevante en nosotros. Podemos ser conducidos por la historia de Jesús en su propia vida, si comenzamos a creer que Jesús sufre y muere para nosotros, porque nos ama y quiere salvarnos. Jesús espera que nosotros nos hagamos la
parte de su historia de la vida y no espectadores. ¿Podemos dar la misma cantidad de amor y fe a Jesús? Sí podemos, por nuestro
servicio humilde a otros, por nuestros esfuerzos personales y comunales, y por nuestro crecimiento de nuestra vida sacramental.
Las conversaciones individuales hasta las cuales Jesús hizo con sus oyentes se colgó en la cruz aparecida que su piedad ministering
era al mismo final y nos debería animar a aumentar nuestra confianza en él. ¿A quien iremos y depositaremos nuestra confianza en
todos nuestros juicios(ensayos), persecuciones y muerte? ¡A Jesús!

Hoy es el Domingo de Ramos y el principio de la más llena de agujeros de semanas cristianas. Vamos a rezar por la
gracia de tomar nuestra propia cruz y seguir a Jesús a través de la muerte a la nueva vida.
Como coloca su regalo en la Sociedad de San Vicente de Paul Poor Box, sabe que es el amor de Dios del signo a aquellos que llevan su cruz de sufrimiento y dolor.
La Promesa de dar
En un intento de impedir mermar nuestro suministro de alimentos en nuestra Despensa de la Comida necesitamos su ayuda. Comenzando el próximo mes, abril, comenzaremos “La Promesa de Dar” el proyecto de colección de la comida. Este proyecto permite a
cada uno en la parroquia jugar una parte activa en el final de la epidemia terrible del hambre en nuestra comunidad. Cada primer
domingo, proveeremos bolsos marrones de una lista de artículos que necesitamos en nuestra despensa para ese mes particular, atado
al bolso. Habrá alguien que distribuye los bolsos después de cada misa. Esto está estrictamente en una base del voluntario, así por
favor no se sienta obligado. La Palabra de Dios dice, “Dé según las bendiciones de su vida.” Si siente que se ha bendito, entonces
pedimos que por favor esté una bendición a alguien más tomando un bolso, compre los artículos incluidos en la lista, coloque los
artículos en el bolso, y a algún punto durante ese mes cuando viene a la misa, coloca el bolso en San Vicente caja de la comida de
Paul localizada en el vestíbulo de la iglesia. No podemos pegar a Dios dar no importa cómo intentamos. Vamos a unirse juntos y
vamos a eliminar el hambre en nuestra Comunidad.
Por favor no comer caramelos o
masticar chicle durante la Misa.
Por favor no pegue goma bajo las
bancas.
