SPRING! Ahhh Spring! How sweet it is to see some sunshine, warmer temps,the trees budding and plants sprouting after a long and cold winter. We can watch the transformation of buds into leaves, sprouts into colorful flowers, grass turning greener, and finally get to hang up those heavy coats. This is a visible sign for us during Lent, to go from our ordinary lives into a short 40 day journey of self evaluation to make personal commitments and changes that strengthen our character and deepen our faith. The joy comes from watching spring grow into something beautiful, but also allowing Lent to grow into the joy of the Risen Lord. Easter is the holiest and most incredibly season of our year and well worth the journey.
Our board of directors has been working hard to solidify nominees to the board for this upcoming year. Their success in filling the positions of trustees, President elect, and confirming our directorships shows the leadership and willingness to serve that makes us one of the best Serra Clubs around. They will be elected on April 10th and installed on May 8th. Thank you to the nominating committee for their fine work and selection of candidates. April 27 is an important day for training. The Spring Leadership Conference for District 12-2C will be held at The Church of the Ascension from 8am to noon. Jim Burns will cover all the basics of Serra and how it operates.
It is open to all members of the district, especially newer members and those interested in becoming a leader. All board members should attend. A worthwhile and informative morning. Please check our website for the Calendar of Events for May, it is a busy month with Blisters for Sisters, World Day of Prayer for the Vocations, and ordinations for the transitional deacons and priests ordination.
April 21st is Easter Sunday. Have a blessed and holy Easter with your family and friends.
Peace in Christ,
