Sequence Victimae Paschali Laudes
Christians, to the Paschal Victim
Offer your thankful praises!
A Lamb the sheep redeems;
Christ, who only is sinless,
Reconciles sinners to the Father.
Death and life have contended in that combat stupendous:
The Prince of life, who died, reigns immortal.
Speak, Mary, declaring
What you saw, wayfaring.
“The tomb of Christ, who is living,
The glory of Jesus’ resurrection;
bright angels attesting,
The shroud and napkin resting.
Yes, Christ my hope is arisen;
to Galilee he goes before you.”
Christ indeed from death is risen, our new life obtaining.
Have mercy, victor King, ever reigning!

Afternoon of Reflection
Sunday, March 31st, 1:30 – 4pm
All are invited to an afternoon of Lenten Reflection, in our church. The afternoon will be led by Father George E. Collins, S.J. of the Loyola Jesuit Center.
Every Lent we are given the opportunity to reflect on, and then reevaluate, the quality and direction of our lives. This Lenten season also invites us to surrender our strong sense of self so as to unite more fully with our loving and merciful God.
Come to an afternoon of reflection as we explore both fear and trust in our relationship with Jesus and the necessity of familiarizing ourselves with the art of discernment of spirits so as to know, love and serve the Lord more fully.
