Abbreviated Church of the Home
For the next two weekends, the Church of the Home will be an abbreviated version, with only the Bulletins, Scripture/Virtually Sunday Reflections, and Family Activities.
That does not mean that your Church of the Home shouldn't be as vibrant. Continue growing in faith every day within your homes and families. Find those holy moments that exemplify the presence of Christ and the love of God. Look for opportunities to pause from the business and deepen your relationship with each other and with God.
In two weeks, we will celebrate the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord. How can you prepare your Church of the Home for this celebration?
A dinnertime idea: Historically, Ascension Day has been a feast day in the church. Consider making something special for dinner to surprise your family. Or create an easy pavlova, meringues, or another cloud-like dessert to celebrate the Ascension—and how Jesus will return.
An outside idea. If it’s not raining go outside, throw a quilt or blanket on the ground, and tell everyone to lay on their backs to look up at the sky and clouds together. Read Acts 1:11, then together imagine Jesus returning on one of the fluffiest clouds you can see.
Important Traffic Update
Please be advised that the course for the Cellcom Marathon will run past Resurrection. This will most likely affect the time it will take you to get to Mass on Sunday morning.
Join us for Mass this weekend in person at 4:00 PM on Saturday, 8:30 or 10:30 AM on Sunday, on www.gbres.org/live, our YouTube channel, and our Facebook page.
READINGS FOR THIS WEEKEND’S MASSES
VIRTUALLY SUNDAY REFLECTION
There are thin places of darkness and division in our world. But God calls us to see the goodness of the world and persevere through hardships to show love. Join Tony as he reflects on this Sunday's Scripture readings.

Seeds of Life Documentary
At the beginning of Lent, Resurrection showed the documentary "Seeds of Life" by Paige McKenna Grube. This documentary chronicles the work and ministry of Sr. Maria Marciano.
Resurrection is proud to announce that the film has won two awards and has been accepted into 6 film festivals.
As part of the original showing, $650 was raised for the sr. Maria Designated Fun for Humanitarian Aid in the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay. With this gift, Resurrection is supporting Sr. Maria Marciano in her efforts to improve the standard of living and nutrition for families in Haiti.
If you are interested in purchasing a DVD of this documentary for $30, please contact Tony Pichler in the parish office.

You would think that a Snail without a shell would move that bit faster?
But it's actually more sluggish.
