He is Risen!! Alleluia


He is Risen as He said!! :-)

Time has just flown by and not only have we traveled through Lent, but it is already the 3rd Sunday of Easter!

Lent was a prayerful time here at STA with many different opportunities for reflection:
The reading of Pope Benedict's new encyclical over a period of 3 weeks
Stations of the Cross every Friday
A presentation of a Journey to the Holy Land by Fr. Jesus & Msgr. White
A Charismatic Healing Mass in English
A Charismatic Youth Retreat in Spanish
A presentation by Creative Ministries of "The Journey ~ Cross & Crucifixion
Lenten Pretzels
A Viewing of the Passion of the Christ for Adults
A Viewing of The Miracle Maker for Children
Stations of the Cross for Families
Chanting the Lenten Introits

On Good Friday over 700 people from our cluster parishes of STA, Our Lady of Peace, Holy Family, St. John the Evangelist, St. Rocco & Our Lady of Czestochowa joined by the parish of Holy Name prayed the Way of the Cross through the streets of Windsor Terrace, Sunset Park and Park Slope. This 3 hour process was an impressive showing of the faith of our communities!

During this Easter season, may we celebrate our Lord and continue to walk with Him!
