Easter Week

By some every-ten-years turn of the winds and the jet stream, we here in the Great Lakes experienced a triduum of 80+ degree days---tying or breaking each day's record high.

This rarity caused our budding flowers and trees to think it was late April instead of early in the month and they burst out all over the place over the weekend--another rarity: daffodils for Easter Sunday.

Here's a look around our place on Holy Saturday afternoon with Happy Easter week wishes to you.

PS. This year's Easter collection, taken at our Easter vigil and morning liturgy, was given to the Community of Caring, a grass roots group in downtown Erie offering all kinds of assistance to the very poor. It was founded and is still run by oblates of our community.
