Mater Dolorosa Catholic Church
Fifth Sunday of Easter
April 20th, 2008 - Bulletin


Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.

Psalm 33


THEME OF OUR LITURGY -
With Christ our light as the beacon lighting our way,
let us march toward the glory of Pentecost.

First Reading: Acts 6: 1-7
To meet their growing needs, the community chooses seven reputable men to serve the new Greek believers.

Second Reading: 1 Peter 2:4-9
We, like living stones, let ourselves be built into a spiritual house.

Gospel: John 14: 1-12
“Show us the Father,” Philip asks Jesus. To which Jesus replies: “Whoever sees me, sees the Father”.


“Those who have faith in me will do the works I do, and far greater than these,” Jesus tells his disciples. That’s quite an assignment for us as Christian stewards! (See John 14:12)

“Stewardship by the Book” by Sharon Huekel


Please remember in your prayers the happy repose of the soul of
Anne McDermott.

Even though Anne was a parishioner of St. Veronica’s, she spent a lot of time here at Mater Dolorosa. Anne was 90 years old when she died. She was buried from St. Anne’s Home last Saturday.


May she rest in peace.
