Dear Holy Apostles Parish Family,
This week we will be observing “Be Reconciled”
Day on Wednesday. We will start out at
St. Mary's then to Christ the King then to
St. Pat’s and ending here. Please consult the
cover and Page 4 for the times. I think it is
very important that we work together on this
to give the McHenry community great
options to go to Reconciliation with a wide
variety of priests and times.
Last weekend, Fr. Godwin's plane was
cancelled and he did not get home until
midday Sunday, so we were glad to help out
at the last minute. Fr. Tim was already helping with a Mass at St. Mary's, then he took
one at St. Pat’s and had one here. I think he
is the only priest to celebrate Mass at all
three churches on the same weekend. It is
good to see us working together and helping
each other out. I feel like we are becoming a
united McHenry Catholic Community. I hope
you are enjoying that too. I see people from
all our parishes at daily Mass. It is good to
see us working together on helping those
living in poverty to try to get them out of
All the homeless, the unemployed, the military, the addicted, the
grieving, the imprisoned, and the physically and emotionally ill.

Father Paul
Week 5: Go and sin no more
We are saved by the Cross, no longer
condemned, free to live and to love
The difference
between human
judgment and God's
judgment is mercy.
By dying on the
Cross, Christ took
away all sin, once
and for all. We are
freed from the past
and from condemnation and from
judgment. When we truly believe in the forgiveness of God we can be free—free to
build the kingdom. We surrender our guilt
and our shame to be fully human, living in
God's tender and loving mercy, and leading
others to do the same.

Day of Reconciliation—March 16
Every time we sin, we hurt ourselves, other people and
God. The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also called Penance or Confession)
was given to us by
Christ to help us reconcile with Christ
and his Church when
we have committed
harm. Through the
Sacrament, we
acknowledge our sins, express our sorrow in a meaningful way, receive the forgiveness of Christ and his Church,
make reparation for what we have done and resolve to
do better in the future.
The rite for Reconciliation involves four parts:
Contrition: a sincere sorrow for having offended God and
the most important act of the penitent. There can be no
forgiveness of sin if we do not have sorrow and a firm
resolve not to repeat our sin.
Confession: confronting our sins in a profound way to
God by speaking about them -aloud- to the priest.
Penance: an important part of our healing is the
"penance" the priest imposes in reparation for our sins.
Absolution: the priest speaks the words by which "God,
the Father of Mercies" reconciles a sinner to Himself
through the merits of the Cross.
Our McHenry area parishes will offer a full day of
Reconciliation on Wednesday, March 16, as follows:
St. Mary, McHenry:
9 AM to 12 noon
Christ the King, Wonder Lake: 12 to 2 PM
St. Patrick, McHenry:
2 to 5 PM
Holy Apostles:
6 to 8 PM
Come, take advantage of this opportunity to prepare
your heart for the Risen Christ.

events. Shop online at

Join or Give to Our St. Baldrick’s Team
We are excited and gearing up again for our third St.
Baldrick’s Community Shave Event on Wednesday,
March 16, at McHenry West High School (last year’s
LARGEST SHAVE EVENT). Please consider signing up to
be part of this year’s
Holy Apostles Team to
raise money to conquer childhood cancer
or sponsor someone
who is on the team by
making a donation. This
exciting event truly
makes a difference to
children and their families affected by cancer.
Joining the Holy Apostles team or donating to
an existing team member is easy to do:
 Go to www.thechurchofholyapostles.org.
 Click on the big green “McHenry Community Shave”
box on the right side of the home page.
 Click on Join or Donate and follow the directions.
Each of us has been touched by a family member or a
friend who has or has had cancer. Take those feelings
and extend them to an innocent child and their family.
The monies collected go to research to fight childhood
cancer. Your donation could be the one that finds a cure.
Join our team, or donate to one of the team members.
We all have a part to play in this battle against cancer.
You can also help this cause by purchasing a St. Baldrick’s
t-shirt, the proceeds of which directly benefit local
families with children who are being treated for cancer.
Another Way to Support St. Baldrick’s
Want to show your support for St. Baldrick’s but don’t
want to go bald? Why not go GREEN? TODAY March 13,
hair stylists from Hair Ink Salon, 1201 Adams Dr.,
McHenry, will be here at Holy Apostles after the 8 AM
and 10 AM Masses offering GREEN hair extensions and
GREEN feathers. Each feather or extension is $10. Last
year, with the help of our amazing community, Hair Ink
was able to raise
over $5,000! And
remember, 100%
of funds raised
from hair extensions and feathers
benefit LOCAL families who have a child suffering from
cancer. Please help them raise funds to help ease the
burden these families experience.

covenant of the Holy Eucharist. The
Eucharist flows from our Lord’s
passion. Take some time each week
to visit Jesus in the Divine Eucharist
at the All Saints Perpetual Adoration
Chapel. and thank Him. Pray, listen, and feel the
peace that He gives us so lovingly. Take a break from
your busy life to acknowledge His comforting love.

savior and our brother. Amen.

the fulfillment of what Easter is all about—-perfect life in
eternity. Our Risen Lord’s victory over sin and death!
The image of the Divine Mercy is a "snapshot" of Jesus appearing on Easter Sunday night. We see His wounds and
His risen radiance. His left hand points to His Heart, inviting us to come to Him. His right hand is
raised in a blessing of peace.
Jesus told St. Faustina that, On that day
(Divine Mercy Sunday) the very depths of
My tender mercy are open. I pour out a
whole ocean of graces upon those souls
who approach the fount of My mercy. The
soul that will go to confession and receive
Holy Communion on that day shall obtain
complete forgiveness of sin and punishment...Let no soul fear to draw near to Me,
even though its sins be as scarlet...It is My desire that it
(Feast of Divine Mercy) be solemnly celebrated on the first
Sunday after Easter."*
The Feast of Mercy is Sunday, April 3, will be celebrated at
the Church of Holy Apostles with:
Confessions at 2 PM

El Papa Francisco explicó con detalle el Triduo Pascual y
pidió al Señor que “nos conceda a todos participar plenamente en el misterio de su muerte y resurrección haciendo nuestros sus propios sentimientos”.
El Papa Francisco recordó que el Triduo Pascual comienza el jueves Santo con la celebración de la Última Cena“
en la que Jesús ofreció, con el Pan y el Vino, su Cuerpo y
su Sangre al Padre, y nos mandó perpetuar esta ofrenda
en conmemoración suya”.
Sobre el gesto de lavar los pies, el Papa destacó que es
“expresión de esa misma entrega como servicio a Dios y
a los hermanos” y añadió que en el Bautismo “la gracia
de Dios nos ha lavado del pecado” y que en cada Eucaristía “nos interpela a seguir el mandamiento de su amor.”.
Asimismo, el Papa señaló que en el viernes Santo recordaremos las palabras de Jesús en la Cruz: «Está
cumplido» y explicó que “el sacrificio del Cordero inmolado, que transforma la mayor iniquidad en un acto supremo de amor, lleva a término el plan de salvación contenido en las Escrituras”.
“Nuestra vida refleja este amor perfecto, cuando ofreciéndola por los demás, como Jesús nos enseñó, lo hacemos presente en medio de su pueblo”, precisó el Pontífice.
Durante el sábado Santo, el Papa explicó que
“contemplaremos el descanso de Jesús en el sepulcro” y
junto a María, su madre, “mantendremos encendida la
llama de la fe y de la esperanza”.
El Papa recordó que en la Vigilia Pascual “celebraremos
al Resucitado, centro y fin de la creación y de la historia,
en la alegre esperanza de su retorno” y concluyó que “la
piedra del dolor será removida por el resplandor de la
resurrección, que ilumina nuestro presente y nuestro futuro”.
