2023 Easter Video Message

As we celebrate Easter-the greatest feast that Christians of all denominations observe, we invite you to watch this special 2023 Easter video message from Sister Rita Sturwold, SNDdeN:

In her message, Sister Rita reflects upon wisdom she heard expressed by children during an Easter Sunday Mass. She recalls the pastor asked children gathered on altar steps: "What did Jesus say to the people He met on Easter?"

Without hesitating, the youngsters answered: "Don't be afraid." "Peace be with you." "I will never leave you."

Sister Rita notes: "I was so moved as I heard...little voices repeating [Jesus' words] with such simplicity and confidence..." 

We wish you a happy and blessed Easter!
