A note from our Pastor
Dear Family of Faith,
Christ is Risen!
Indeed He is Risen!

A most blessed and joy-filled Easter to you and your families! And a warm welcome to any visitors with us at IHM to celebrate the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass, which is the memorial of the glorious Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

We know that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of our faith. It is through His sacrifice and triumph over death that we are redeemed and given the promise of eternal life. The joy and hope that come with the Easter season remind us that no matter how difficult our journey may be, we are never alone.

This Easter, let us continue to draw strength from our faith and from each other. Let us hold fast to the promises of Christ and the hope that His resurrection brings. May we be filled with the joy and peace that come from knowing that we are loved and that we have a purpose in this world.

I wish you and your families a blessed and happy Easter. May the risen Christ fill your hearts with hope and your lives with His grace.

In the Risen Lord,

Fr. Chad M. Droessler

Congratulations and God’s Blessings to Amilia Marie Nett, who was baptized on April 2, 2023!
