Dear Parents,

The Lenten season has traditionally been a time for reflection, a time to recognize our own imperfections, a time to make amends and to seek forgiveness through prayer and service to others. When Easter finally dawns, do we breathe a sigh of relief and get back to normal living?

This year, let’s think not less about Lenten activities, but more about Easter – the joy and the hope that it represents. Without Easter, without the Resurrection, we would face a future of darkness rather than the promise of eternal life. Easter is truly a time of celebration! As we see signs of renewed life all around us in nature, we realize that we can share in that renewal.

What a sign of God’s love we experience with the Resurrection! How best can we respond to that love? Can we express our own love for God and neighbor in visible ways? Can we model for our children the happiness of spirit which comes with faith? Can we renew with our children the promises made at Baptism?

We are truly Easter people. Together, as parents and teachers, let us face the future with its challenges and its opportunities with renewed faith and hope as we voice our joyful “Alleluia”.

Yours in Christ,

Ms. Deborah Savage
