WELCOME to St. Mary's Parish, Cochrane

Father Andrew Pyon

A MESSAGE FROM FATHER ANDREW:

Dear Parishioners,

Easter is not just a historical event that occurred one time, long ago. That is how we think of it, in the past tense. A good and great man was killed, but did not stay dead. He was raised to live again. In our minds, this is Easter.

But it is more than that. Easter is also a statement about you and me and our possibilities. Anytime we find the courage to rise above our past, and live again, that is a little bit of Easter. The people find power in their weakness, light in their darkness, and freedom in their bondage. What are these but a passing from death to life? After that, it is no longer hard to believe that God raised Jesus from the dead.

I wish you all a Happy Easter. May the joy of Easter, past, present, and future, be yours both now and forever.
