Jesus is Risen!


Christos Voskres!
Voistinu Voskres!

Christ is Risen!
He is risen indeed!

The Work College started out the weekend with a retreat on Friday that was great. We shared spiritual readings and got to meditate on the crucifixion of Jesus.

The WC was busy on Saturday- chores, pierogie making, egg dying, and lots of cooking and baking for the whole weekend.

We went to Easter Vigil at St. Bavo's, had a party at GL afterwards, where all the K. kids had hidden an Easter bag for each WC member- that was delightful. On Sunday we went to Good Shepherd Lutheran and then had a brunch in the courtyard. It was warm and sunny- which was a gift from the Lord.

The People of Praise meeting was awesome- they ring bells here during Alleluia songs- apparently, this is a French tradition. To finish off the day, Meghan hosted many of us at her parents' house, who are in Florida for the week on vacation. Thank you for your hospitality! It was wonderful.

Glory to God for His sacrifice and for saving us! We have new life in Him! Alleluia!

  1. Beautiful Easter egg photo, Mary. Plus you made me South-Bend-sick talking about the Easter meeting. I love the SB Easter meeting!

    Happy Easter!
