Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed. Hallelujah!
After a blessed and rich Lenten journey the celebration of Easter came full of color, full of joy. Following the Gloria Dei style we start this beautiful gathering as a big family around the table to taste the traditional and delicious breakfast lovely prepare by the Shafaee-Moghadam Family. Thanks to Kamale, Gloria, Sara, Dorna, Roxane and Aria for their gentleness and holy dedication. Specials thanks for those who made possible our great celebration of Easter with the uplifting musical presentations, the sanctuary filled with flowers, and the natural sunlight streaming into the sanctuary from above – all contributed to filling our hearts with one spirited acclamation, “Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed. Hallelujah!”
Now we move forward as people of the resurrection telling others that Christ lives. We are reminded that the biblical story tells us that Jesus appeared to the disciples and many others during a period of 40 days, until his ascension. Following the solemnity of Lent, Easter season is often filled with joyful events, and so it will be here at Gloria Dei.
Praise God for the joy of proclaiming the Good News of the Gospel together and for demonstrating in good works of compassion and love that the Risen Christ is alive in the hearts and minds of the people of Gloria Dei!
Yours in Christ,
