SAINT PHILIP PREPARATORY SCHOOL

We gathered only a short time ago to welcome the newborn infant, Son of God and Son of Mary, the Savior of the World. I believe there is a similarity and difference between Christmas and Easter. Both times the message is: “Be not afraid.” Yet, there is a decided difference. With the event of Christmas, the message tells us, “Do not be afraid, because the Savior has come,” whereas the message of Easter is, “Do not be afraid, because the Savior has triumphed!”

On that first Easter, the apostle became changed persons; their discouragement was replaced by hope, their weakness by strength and courage. This Easter may we too be transformed, to new life and hope that the Risen Jesus brings. Be not afraid.

Please join us for our Annual 8th Grade Play on Wednesday, April 22nd at 7 PM. Our 8th grade is proud to present, Beauty and the Beast! This is a tale you won’t want to miss!!
