 EasterDawn

Easter is not a day, it is a season.

We are an Easter People!

Pentecost

The coming of the Spirit transformed the early church!

Locked doors were opened.

Fear was replaced by courage.

Peace was proclaimed.

The power to forgive sins was present.

Those who were afraid spoke bloldly.

Thousands heard the message in their own language.

The Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail Mary

Hail, Mary! Full of grace, The Lord is with thee, Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
