Thank You to Fr. Flavin
— We are grateful to Very Rev. James Flavin for administering the Sacrament of Confirmation in our Parish last week. It was a beautiful ceremony as 29 teenagers and 25 adults received the seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit — Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, Counsel or Right Judgment, Fortitude or Courage, Piety or Reverence, and Fear of the Lord or Wonder and Awe in God’s presence. May the Holy Spirit continue to inspire and guide our confirmandi and their sponsors.
Our professional photographer, Osvaldo Calderon, took some won-derful pictures of our Confirmation last Friday. You can view these pictures and order the ones you want by logging on to:

New Children’s Choir
— Our Children’s Choir will be singing at the 8:30 Mass today and will be continuing to prepare for Mother’s Day. There will be a rehearsal for those in grades 1-8 on April 22nd and 29th, from 10:45 to 11:15 a.m., right after Religious Education classes. We have room for more children, so please encourage the singers in your family to join the choir.
— Many thanks to all who devoted 100 hours before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament last weekend. We are sure that many of the blessings showered on this Parish are the result of your faithful devotion to the Lord. The next time of adoration in the Rectory Chapel will be on Friday, May 4th (8:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.) and Saturday, May 5th (8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.). Please plan to spend some time with the Lord on those days.
The Carnival Returns
— We all remember the very successful Carnival last year that rendered great benefits to the Parish. Well, the Carnival “Fiesta Shows” will return to our premises again this year for four days from April 19th to the 22nd. The rides, slides, Carnival food, music, and games will be the delight of kids and adults alike. Make plans to come to the Carnival on our parish grounds and have a great time.
— You might have noticed two sheds located in the school parking lot. They are here for us to donate used clean clothing, shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, linens, pillowcases, blankets, curtains, and stuffed animals. The St. Pauly Company sells and distributes the clothing all over the world for mere pennies on the pound in large quantities, and the company gives back a donation to St. Stephen’s every month for the items donated. Please put your items in a bag and place it in the chute on the shed. There is a box on the side of the shed for donations slips. Please feel free to take one and fill it out for yourself each time you make a donation.
