    DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY Next Sunday, May 1st, is Divine Mercy Sunday. Ways to pre- pare for and observe the Feast of Mercy are:

    1. Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy Novena. 2. Celebrate the Feast on the Sunday after Easter. 3. Place complete trust in Jesus. 4. Go to confession, preferably prior to that Sunday. 5. Receive Holy Communion on the Feast Day. 6. Venerate the Image of The Divine Mercy. 7. Be merciful to others through actions, words, and

    prayers on their behalf. St. Joseph Church in Cottleville will be celebrating Divine Mercy Sunday with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Con- fessions, and the Rosary beginning at 2:30pm followed by the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be celebrated at 4:00pm. For more information call Alice Sinak at 636-300-4465.

    Congratulations to Chelsea Bollinger, Sarah Eberle and T.J. Savage III in receiving the Sacraments and joining in full Communion with the Catholic Church. We welcome you with great joy to our parish family. May your love for our Eucha- ristic Lord and His Church grow stronger in the days to come.

    Many people think that Christmas is the most important day in the Catholic liturgi- cal calendar, but from the earliest days of the Church, Easter has been considered the central Christian feast. As Saint Paul wrote in 1 Co- rinthians 15:14, "If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain." Without Easter—without the Resur- rection of Christ—there would be no Christian

    Faith. Christ's Resurrection is the proof of His Divinity. Easter is not only the greatest Christian feast; it is the fulfillment of our faith as Christians. Through His Death, Christ destroyed our bondage to sin; through His Resurrection, He brought us the promise of new life, both in Heaven and on earth. His own prayer, "Thy Kingdom come, on earth as it is in Heaven," begins to be fulfilled on Easter Sunday.

    Stewardship Awareness “If then you were raised with Christ, seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Think of what is above, not of what is on earth.” Colossians 3:1-2 Easter is a good time to recommit ourselves to a simpler lifestyle - concentrating more of our efforts on what God wants from us and less of our efforts on what we want for ourselves. Jesus sacrificed every- thing for us. What can we sacrifice, not just at Lent, but every day, so that we can better serve Our Lord?
