THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
TERCER DOMINGO DE LA PASCUA
“They were all incredulous with sheer joy…” Still, today, divided
as we often are between doubt and belief, we find it difficult to
recognize in faith the person of the One who lives in our midst.
Yet we encounter him at Eucharist. We see him in the assembly
gathered in his name. We hear him in the words of those who
have borne witness to him in the scriptures. We know him once
again in the breaking of the bread. We experience the power of
his Spirit as we are sent out into the world to spread the good
news from person to person.
“Estaban todos incrédulos con puro gozo…” Todavía hoy,
divididos como somos entre la duda y la creencia, nos resulta
difícil reconocer con fe la persona de El que vive entre nosotros.
Sin embargo lo encontramos en la Eucaristía. Lo vemos en la
asamblea reunida en su nombre. Le escuchamos en las palabras de
los que han dado su testimonio en las escrituras. Le conocemos
una vez más al partir el pan. Experimentamos el poder de su
espíritu cuando somos enviados al mundo para dar la buena
noticia de persona a persona.

MENSAJE PASTORAL
Who is Jesus for me?
On our faith journey, each person develops personal images of Jesus. These images take shape
through our life experiences, retreats, reading, liturgy and spiritual direction. Sometimes these
images develop and change as we move on our faith journey with the Lord. Saint John Paul II
often expressed these words; “Who is Jesus for me? Who is He really for my thoughts, for my
heart, for my behavior? How do I speak about Him to others?”
Jesus took on several titles throughout his life: “Jesus as carpenter,” “Prince of Peace,” “Jesus as
Good Shepherd,” “Jesus my Lord.” The images complement each other; Jesus is one.
What is your personal image of Jesus and has this changed over time?
(Adapted from Msgr. Francis Kelly, “Discovering Jesus”.)
¿Quién es Jesús para mí?
En nuestra jornada de fe, cada persona desarrolla imágenes personales de Jesús. Estas imágenes toman forma a través de
nuestras experiencias de vida, retiros, leyendo, la liturgia y dirección espiritual. Algunas veces estas imágenes se desarrollan
y se cambian a medida que continuamos en nuestro viaje con el Señor. San Juan Pablo II a menudo expresaba estas palabras:
“¿Quién es Jesús para mí? ¿Quién es Él verdaderamente para mis pensamientos, para mi corazón, para mi comportamiento?
¿Cómo hablo de Él a los demás?”
Jesús se puso varios títulos a lo largo de su vida: “Jesús como carpintero”, “Príncipe de la Paz”, “Jesús como el Buen Pastor”,
“Jesús mi Señor”. Las imágenes se complementan entre sí; Jesús es uno.
¿Cuál es su imagen personal de Jesús, y ha cambiado esta con el tiempo?
(Adaptada de Mons. Francis Kelly, “Discovering Jesus”.)

MARRIED & ENGAGED COUPLES
“I take you to be my [spouse]…till death
do us part.” This holy pledge promises a
love that is like the love of God – free,
faithful, fruitful, and total, forever. The
intimate love that we promise at the wedding remains holy if practiced under the
guidance of God’s plan. NATURAL
FAMILY PLANNING offers a means of
keeping love holy. A three-class series
begins Sunday, April 26 at 2:00 PM at St.
Anne. Each class lasts about two hours.
For information, contact Lou and Jeanne
Curcio by email at [email protected] or

LORD TEACH ME TO PRAY
Deepen Your Prayer Life; Help Others
Do The Same!
Are you a woman or man of prayer?
Are you comfortable working with small
groups?
May 15-16, Holy Rosary Catholic Church
will host a Facilitator Training-Retreat for
the “Lord Teach Me To Pray” prayer
series. There is no charge for the training
itself or the materials. It will be conducted in a retreat setting and discernment atmosphere. Come & discern if
God is calling you to become a facilitator!
Or, if you are simply interested in finding
out more about Ignatian Prayer and the
“Lord, Teach Me To Pray” (LTMTP)
prayer series, you are also invited! For
info and registration: Carol Weiler, (504)

to www.lordteachmetopray.com.
HOLINESS is a challenge for all of us,
whatever our specific vocations. We are
called to be holy in all aspects of our
lives. This is an ongoing process, often
slowed by setbacks. When the saints
were alive, they did not regard themselves as saints; rather, they knew they
were sinners — and they strived to be
saints. The process of becoming holy is,
even for saints, filled with struggle.
Know you are a sinner; strive to be
a saint.
LA SANTIDAD es un desafío para
todos nosotros, cualquiera que sean
nuestras vocaciones específicas. Somos
llamados para ser santos en todo aspecto
de nuestras vidas. Este es un proceso
continuo, a menudo desacelerado por
adversidades. Cuando vivían los santos,
no se considerarían como santos; al
contrario, sabían que eran pecadores—
y ellos se esforzaron a ser santos. El
proceso de llegar a ser santo es, aun para
los santos, lleno de lucha. Sabes que eres
un pecador; lucha para ser un santo.

Earth Day is this Wednesday, April 22, and Pope Francis
spoke out earlier this year on our relationship with our
planet and the environment as Christians. “As stewards
of God’s creation, we are called to make the earth a

STEM Students Try Their Hand at
Coding
The Shamrock STEM Club is no stranger
to designing projects and entering them
into contests. The STEM Club stands for
Science, Technology, Engineering and
Math and is a group of sixth, seventh and
eighth grade girls who come together
after school on Fridays to learn new skills
in these exciting fields. Under the
guidance of Science teacher and engineer,
Mrs. Francine Keusenkothen, the girls
have expanded their horizons into the
many opportunities that STEM fields
create.
Most recently, four Shamrock STEM
Club students designed, coded and
submitted their own video games for the
2014-2015 National STEM Video Game

NOTICIAS DE LA ESCUELA SANTA ANA
Challenge sponsored by The Smithsonian
in partnership with the Joan Ganz Cooney
Center and E-Line Media. The goal of the
competition is to “motivate interest in
STEM learning among America’s youth
by tapping into students’ natural passion
for playing and making video games”,
according to the Challenge’s website.
The students used Scratch as their game
making platform. Scratch is a
programming language developed by the
Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT
Media Lab. As students “create and share
Scratch projects, they learn important
mathematical and computational ideas,
while also learning to think creatively,
reason systematically, and work
collaboratively.”
In Rohini Chahal’s Happy Math Hippo
students are challenged by a winged hippo
to use mental math to solve addition,
subtraction multiplication and division
problems. https://scratch.mit.edu/
projects/46900214
Lily Hoefner’s Perfect Square Crab helps
students practice identifying perfect
squares by catching them as they drop
from above. https://scratch.mit.edu/
projects/54774024
In Sophie Hoefner’s Fred the Math
dragon, players solve math problems to
help Fred get back to his castle. https://

Kate Mischlich’s Hungry Penguin game
helps preschool students practice spatial
and keyboard skills to move a penguin
through simple mazes to get to a
doughnut. https://scratch.mit.edu/

ADULT
ACTS Retreat
We are working to bring the ACTS Retreats to Saint Anne! An ACTS Retreat is a three-day and three-night Catholic lay retreat
presented by fellow parishioners. Talks and activities focus on Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service, from which the ACTS
acronym is derived.
Testimony of one ACTS retreatant: “ACTS gave me ...community, it strengthened my relationship with God and it allowed me to go
back into parish life and serve my brothers and sisters. ACTS was a big, beautiful door to my present active life in various ministries
within the parish. Thank God for these ACTS retreats that infuses life in parishes!”
In order to be able to offer the retreat for the parish, a team from the parish has to be formed. The team is made up of people who
have attended an ACTS Retreat. If you are interested please contact Dan Persha, 713-802-6145, [email protected] or Natalie
Mendieta, 713 525 4231, [email protected]
Adult Education Opportunities
Would you like to learn more about our Catholic faith? Have you ever wished you had more solid answers to give about topics of our
Catholic faith to your family and friends? The Religious Education Office wants to offer a number of opportunities in the coming
months. Three studies for adults are being prepared for you.
Endow (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) is a Catholic study program that engages the intellect of women
and teenage girls to help them understand their God-given dignity and response to our culture’s desperate need for an authentic
feminine presence to transforms every aspect of life and society for Women.
Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained from the Augustine Institute opens up the big picture of the Catholic faith in a
way that helps know it, live it and articulate it to others.
Catholicism Series by Rev. Robert Barron is a journey around the world and deep into the faith.
Details on each study will be featured in the coming weeks. Each study is in need of volunteers to assist. If you are interested in
learning more about these studies, contact Cary Ann Nunn, Director of Religious Education: 713 525 4234 or [email protected]
