Happy Feast Day
Saint Gemma Galgani
Feast day: April 11
Patronage: students, pharmacists, tuberculosis patients, love, hope, spinal injury
Throughout her life, Gemma was to be favored with many mystical experiences and special graces. She wished to become a nun, but her poor health prevented her from being accepted. On June 8, 1899, Gemma received the stigmata. Gemma often saw her guardian angel, with whom she was on familiar terms and sent on errands. In January of 1903, Gemma was diagnosed as having tuberculosis. She died quietly in the company of the parish priest, on April 11 at age twenty-five.

We are stardust. We are the Universe. God loves every one of us. Oh, happy joy on this special day! All the blessings of Easter to you.
And he departed from our sight that we’d come back to our heart, and there notice Him.
For He departed, and behold, He is here. – By St. Augustine

Easter Week
Now let the heav'ns be joyful,
Let earth her song begin,
The round world keep high triumph,
And all that is therein.
He is risen! He is risen!
Christ the Lord is risen!
Our joy shall have no end.
2 From death to life eternal,
From earth on to the sky,
Our Christ has brought us over
With hymns of victory.
He is risen! He is risen!
Christ the Lord is risen!
Our joy shall have no end.
3 Let all things seen and unseen
Their notes of gladness blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen;
Our joy shall have no end.
He is risen! He is risen!
Christ the Lord is risen!
Our joy shall have no end.

Happy Feast Day
Saint Julie Billiart
1752 - 1816
Feast day: April 8
Patronage: against poverty, bodily ills, disease
Teaching was in Saint Julie Billiart’s blood. As a child, she played school and eventually started a teaching order of nuns, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. When she was a child she made short mental prayers and had a great love of the Eucharist. She suffered poor paralyzing health for 30 years but was miraculously cured in 1804. During the French reign of terror, she was hunted for hiding priests and fled many times from authorities. In 1815, she nursed and fed the starving left from the battle of Waterloo. Julie died peacefully a year later.

Happy Feast Day
Saint John Baptist de la Salle
Feast day: April 7 (New), May 15 (Trad)
Patronage: teachers and all who work in the field of education
Saint John Baptist de la Salle was born to a noble family, the oldest of 10 children. Ordained to the priesthood in 1678, he distinguished himself by his piety and intellect. He was involved in the educational reform of the poor and founded the Institute of Brothers of Christian Schools (Christian Brothers). At a time when education was only for the upper class, he brought classroom teaching and the use of the vernacular, for all children. Though he had many trials with his schools and the Christian Brothers order, his confidence in God remained firm. St. John inspired others to teach and care for youth, meeting failure and frailty with compassion.

Have you received text messages, emails, or messages through Facebook messenger from someone claiming to be your pastor and asking for money or gift cards, indicating it’s an emergency? Don’t give. It’s not your pastor. It’s a scam. Your pastor will never contact a parishioner directly with an emergency request for cash or gift cards. Messages asking parishioners to help fulfill a need would come through the parish’s or the diocese’s official communication channels or be accomplished through a collection approved by the diocese. In addition, please note that neither your parish nor the diocese will ever sell or give away parishioners’ personal information.

If you’re not sure about a text or email you’ve received, do not respond. Call your parish office right away to notify a staff member. You can also file a report through the Federal Trade Commission’s Complaint Assistant which helps the FTC detect patterns of fraud and abuse by going to reportfraud.ftc.gov/
