Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This is the last day for the scavenger hunt. Let us see who wins the grand prize!
If you have been listening to the news you have heard the report about the number of people who may die in this pandemic. It is shocking and very sad. Butt only God knows the future, so we continue to trust and lay our burdens on God, especially as we move towards Palm Sunday and Holy Week. Pray for each other and for all those affected by this terrible pandemic. Stay safe. Do not travel. I pray the slowness of this pace provides the opportunity for each of us to cultivate a deeper relationship with God.
Please tune in for mass at St. Andrew on Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. Check for the link on the church website www.standrew-orlando.org and in this Saturday’s email.
May the peace that this world cannot give be yours.
