The Rosary will be streamed live on the USCCB Facebook and Twitter pages to encourage public participation.

Bishop's April message: say YES to the Father's glory

At the beginning of this month, we celebrated the Mass of the Resurrection, the joy of Easter Sunday. For an Octave…eight days...the Catholic Church will celebrate “the Day” of Resurrection...new birth...Easter. And though some entertainers on the television and internet channels joked about this Solemnity of Easter falling on April Fool’s Day...we who live new life in Christ the Lord...we know the truth of things. I hope that you know of this new life, this abundant life, this life of grace. This is the gift that only the Lord of life may give.
