Easter Message


My Dear Friends in Claverism:

The glorious days of Easter are upon us again!!!  We welcome anew the joyful proclamation of the Lord’s resurrection, and the eternal life and eternal Hope that Easter promises to those who are born of water and the Holy Spirit.  May Jesus Christ, the Victor over the grave, the Risen Lord and the Light of the World, shine upon us and enlighten our minds and hearts to remain true in our efforts to be faithful to Him. 

As the sounds of Alleluia!!!  Alleluia!!! Alleluia!! echo in our minds, hearts and prayer, may we be strengthened for the crosses that we each carry, confident in our own victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Asking the intercession of St. Peter Claver, our patron, I invoke God’s abundant blessings upon all of you and your loved ones during these days of our Easter joy!  Peace and blessings to all!  Alleluia!!
