Easter 2015
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is my hope and prayer that you
have a Blessed Easter filed with the
peace and joy of our Risen Lord!
Today we rejoice with the universal Church in the
victory of Jesus Christ over sin and death and in His
promise that all who unite themselves to Him will share
in His victory. How blessed are we to know that in
Christ Jesus the power of darkness has been dispelled,
suffering has been turned into glory, and death has
been transformed into life eternal.
Just like the first disciples of the Risen Lord, we are
called to go forth and to be His witnesses. Such
witness is made visible when we unite ourselves to
Jesus, especially in prayer and the Sacraments; when
our decisions are guided by His Word; when we
consistently live and practice our faith in love and
without compromise; and, when we serve others,
especially those in most need.
Please be assured of my prayers for you and all those
you love at Easter and always. With God’s grace, may
you bind yourself more deeply to Christ and go forth as
witness to His victory and infinite mercy and love.
Sincerely in Christ,
Michael F. Burbidge
Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge
Bishop of Raleigh

Easter Sunday Of The Resurrection Of The Lord
April 5, 2015
Boletin Hispano
Durante la cuaresma no hay
bautizos. El próximo bautismo
es el día 25 de Abril y la plática
será el día 12 de Abril.
FORMACION DE FE Padre Ricardo, párroco
Hna. M. Teresa coordinadora (910-200-9209)
En este Domingo radiante de Vida, la Iglesia nos invita
a participar del gozo de la Resurrección del Señor. Se
nos invita a participar (no a mirar desde fuera), a hacer
nuestra esta alegría, como cuando se toma parte en
una fiesta... Y esta es la fiesta más grande: es la
Pascua: la del Señor y la nuestra.
Pascua: paso de la muerte a la Vida, a la vida gloriosa
de los hijos de Dios, Vida que ya se nos da en Cristo
Resucitado, al que ahora celebramos. Pascua: paso
de la oscuridad a la Luz del Señor, del caos de este
mundo al orden de la Nueva Creación que Dios ya
introdujo en Jesucristo Resucitado. Paso de la
esclavitud a la libertad; del desierto a la posesión de la
Tierra prometida, al Reino de Dios; del pecado a la
amistad con Dios; del hombre viejo destinado a la
muerte al hombre nuevo, hecho para el Cielo. Paso de
la incredulidad y la desesperación, a la alegría serena
y profunda de la Fe, la Esperanza y el Amor.
No puede haber para el hombre alegría más profunda
que la que hoy se proclama: la alegría de la Salvación.
Sin embargo, para entrar en esta Fiesta, la Fiesta
Eterna de los hijos de Dios, es necesario que nos
vistamos con el traje de fiesta adecuado. Y ese traje
de fiesta es la FE. Y sin Fe, nos quedamos fuera de
esta fiesta.
De los hombres y mujeres que conocieron a Jesús,
sólo los que tuvieron fe en Él encontraron la alegría de
la salvación. Para los otros, las cosas no cambiaron.
Del mismo modo ocurre hoy: sólo por la fe, que
recibimos en el Bautismo y compartimos en cada Misa,
encontramos la alegría de la salvación... para los otros,
este domingo es igual a todos... puede que incluso sea
hasta un día triste, vacío, lleno de nostalgia y de un
deseo ahogado de encontrarse con Dios. La Pascua
que celebramos inaugura un tiempo de gozo.
Jesucristo ha resucitado como el Primero de muchos,
para mostrarnos cuál es la vida que nos espera y se
nos ofrece si damos el paso de la fe.
Para saber acerca de preguntas
sobre inmigración llamen a la Madre
Rosanne al teléfono 910-616-2105.
La Madre atiende todos los domingos
después de la misa de las 9:30 de la
mañana en las oficinas del Centro
A todos los padres de los niños se les recuerda que el
día 11 de Abril tenemos clase y práctica de la Primera
Comunión de sus hijos. El dia 19 de abril el tercer
domingo también tienen clase con las maestras. Es
sumamente importante que ustedes les traigan estos
días a las 9:30 de la mañana. LA FECHA DE LA
El día 12 de Abril, domingo después de la misa de las
9:30 de la mañana tendremos la plática del bautismo.
El bautismo para abril será el día 25 de Abril. Los
siguientes bautismos son: Junio 27 sábado, Julio 25,
sábado, y Agosto 29, sábado. Las pláticas para Junio,
Julio y Agosto son el día 21 de Junio. Por favor tengan
en cuenta estas fechas..
Se pide donaciones de agua, soda
y compra de boletos para la rifa de
20,000 y 5,000 dólares para apadrinar la fiesta. Es
muy importante que todos ustedes se sientan parte
integrante de la fiesta mexicana. Les pido por favor
que se comprometan a comprar solos, o entre amigos
y vecinos un boleto. Solamente un boleto. Si esto se
consigue vamos en buen camino para vender todos los
boletos. Se necesita su entusiasmo. Muchas gracias.
