Easter JOYS

Happy Easter!
Easter has sprung in the desert!  Just take a look!!

This first week of Easter marks spring break for all Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Phoenix.  We Sisters spent the first part of break preparing for Holy Week celebrations and Easter Sunday.

There was a district wide power outage on Easter Sunday so we celebrated Mass by candlelight!!

Sister Maria Goretti made a delicious Easter morning treat which was gone before the power came back on!

Easter table all set for our meal, bunny ears included!!

Of course, we had to take a moment to dye eggs!! visit Sister Elena's mom.  More visits are to come later in the week.

What would Easter be without carrots for the Easter Bunny!

Many Blessings to YOU all this Easter Season and may the JOYS of our Risen Lord continue to be with you ALWAYS!
