WELCOME to St. Mary's Parish, Cochrane
A MESSAGE FROM FATHER ANDREW:
We cannot solve the problems of life until we resolve the threat of death. We know that many people believe that death is the end of all things. If so, all our efforts to build a better world or to be a better person ring empty.
But God has given us the promise through the resurrection of our Brother and Lord that life will have the last word in our strange journeys. The resurrection is God’s guarantee that life triumphs over death.
Furthermore, resurrection is a power and a process. It is the power of God over all the forces that diminish and destroy life – greed as much as illness, selfishness as much as despair. It is the process by which God fulfills the possibilities of life – intelligence as much as humility, generosity as much as spirituality. As Christians, we are being raised from the dead daily.
I encourage you to come and join us to celebrate the gift of life in God during the Holy Week and Easter Season. As a community of people of faith, one way to experience God’s permanent presence in us is the Celebration of the Eucharist. Christ is not a Figure of the Past. HE IS RISEN and HE LIVES WITH US!
I wish you all a very BLESSED and HAPPY EASTER!
