Over the past year with many of us missing the physical connection of church, we’ve come to realize the heart and mind of church is the same as it was in those early days. Our communion with one another is an extension of our communion with God in word and sacrament.
We’ve experienced that communion in so many ordinary and small ways during the pandemic. Helping one another with everything from providing a listening ear to picking up a roll of toilet paper… Giving our time to keep parish ministries going and serving the especially vulnerable and at-risk among us… Checking in with one another to make sure everything is okay.
During this particular Easter season, as hope in a return to normal becomes a reality, may we continue to be a parish community of one heart and one mind.
