First Easter for the Beverly Catholic Collaborative

The Beverly Catholic Collaborative has celebrated it's first Sacred Tridiuum!  Each member parish hosted a service; St. John the Evangelist hosted the Holy Thursday's Lord's Supper; St. Margaret's hosted Good Friday services; and St. Mary, Star of the Sea, hosted the Easter Vigil.  All the services went very well and were very moving!  Especially the Easter Vigil, where we witnessed five individuals be baptized into the faith.

For Easter Sunday, the three parishes distributed little plastic Easter eggs to the little children.  It was fun watching the little tykes run up the main aisle of St. John's, to receive their egg!

Whether we are going through good times or difficult ones; the dawn of Easter provides one with joy and with hope!

Christ is Risen!  He is Risen indeed
