The Gospel Reading is Mark 15: 43-16:8 which describes how the women disciples of our Lord came to the tomb to anoint his body with myrrh-oils but found the tomb empty. As the woman wondered what this meant, angels appeared proclaiming that Christ had risen from the dead. We commemorate these brave myrrh-bearer women. Brave because they were with Jesus in His death and now, after death they are still with Him. As faithful apprentices they were following their Lord beyond death.

NOTE: ANNUAL EGG HUNT!  Thank you to Laura Driscoll for spearheading this event! The hunt will be Sunday, April 18th, in between liturgies from 10:30-11AM. The eggs will be hidden in different areas for different age groups. This year will be different in that the eggs will be empty. The kids will exchange their eggs for a bag of goodies! If you haven’t put up your child’s Easter baskets yet, bring them! Or the kids can use a plastic bag to collect eggs.
