As the girls began to arrive to Camp Grace on the evening of April 26 they seemed excited to be there. This weekend retreat for girls was planned by a team of youth ministers and volunteers from around the diocese. The object was to bring speakers and activities that would help the teens grow in their faith and to challenge them to find ways to have a deeper relationship with Christ. Let Hope be An Anchor for your Soul was the theme of the retreat.

In a typical exchange at the Sister Philomena Outreach Center at Christ the King Church, needy individuals from Harris and Talbot counties receive more than the blessings of groceries or financial assistance in paying their rent and utility bills.

 

As a necessary bonus, they also receive the hands, eyes and ears of those who allocate these short-term, emergency resources.

Sometimes it becomes awkward in church on Mother’s Day when at the end of Mass the priest asks mothers to stand for a blessing. As a religious sister I’ve been in the position of half-standing, half-sitting, unsure of what to do, or even if “spiritual mothers” are included in that prayer.

 

If I stand, would people think I actually have children? Do they really see me as a spiritual mother? Ugh. It becomes complicated, so I slip into a noncommitted sit-kneel position.

After having a vision from God, Peter told the followers of Jesus that it was OK to convert the gentiles to Christianity.

 

So, Paul, Barnabas and others traveled to gentile communities and began converting the people. However, some of Jesus’ followers told the gentiles that to become Christian and be saved, they first had to become Jews and follow the Mosaic law.

 

Paul and Barnabas disagreed. They and some others decided to visit Jerusalem to ask the apostles and elders their opinions.

Planning an intercollegiate retreat requires a willingness to be flexible and accommodating—both to the needs of students as well as to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

CHILDREN'S STORY

 

After the apostles had watched Jesus ascend to his Father in heaven, they returned to Jerusalem.

 

They went back to the upper room where they had been staying, and they prayed with the new community of believers in Jesus.

 

One day, Peter stood up in front of about 120 of these new Christians.

Near the end of “Jesus of Nazareth,” the acclaimed 1977 miniseries, those who put Jesus to death are alarmed, to say the least, at the news his tomb has been emptied — and that maybe, just maybe, Jesus has done what he said he would do: rise from the dead.

 

“And now,” murmurs one of the alarmed, “it begins.”

 

Such is Easter: a beginning. But of what?
