Easter Message from Fr. Peter Wojcik, Pastor

Dear Members of Saint Clement,

Blessed Easter! For days I have searched for the right words to express how special this day is to us. Finding all my words too limiting, I decided to go back to my favorite 2nd century sermon, which I would like to share with you in my first Easter letter, as your pastor. I share this with profound gratitude for you and each and every member of Saint Clement who joins with us in proclaiming the Resurrected Christ.

“Something strange is happening… The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up all who have slept ever since the world began. God has died in the flesh and hell trembles with fear… Awake, O sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will give you light… I am your God, who for your sake have become your son. Out of love for you and for your descendants I now by my own authority command all who are held in bondage to come forth, all who are in darkness to be enlightened, all who are sleeping to arise. I order you, O sleeper, to awake. I did not create you to be held a prisoner in hell. Rise from the dead, for I am the life of the dead. Rise up, work of my hands, you who were created in my image. Rise, let us leave this place, for you are in me and I am in you; together we form only one person and we cannot be separated. The enemy led you out of the earthly paradise. I will not restore you to that paradise, but I will enthrone you in heaven. I forbade you the tree that was only a symbol of life, but see, I who am life itself am now one with you. I appointed cherubim to guard you as slaves are guarded, but now I make them worship you as God. The throne formed by cherubim awaits you, its bearers swift and eager. The bridal chamber is adorned, the banquet is ready, the eternal dwelling places are prepared, the treasure houses of all good things lie open. The kingdom of heaven has been prepared for you from all eternity. Rise let us leave this place!”

Friends, here at Saint Clement we can hear the trumpets of victory of our God! That victory expresses itself in the strength and boldness of our community. This Easter we will welcome twelve new members of our Church, who guided by our extraordinary RCIA team, came to believe in Jesus. There are an additional nineteen people, who will continue their process of preparation.

The victory of our God is visible in our outreach to the poor, love for the sick, and respect for one another. COVID-19 continues to make this year difficult, yet, led by the Holy Spirit we keep growing in faith, in engagement, and in discipleship. Since last summer, over 600 of our members have participated in online small groups, courses, and prayer experiences. Our community is not only alive, we are thriving, and this is just the beginning. Please know that as we celebrate this Easter Season, Fr. Matthew, our Core Leadership Team, and I keep you in our grateful prayers.

Wishing you a Blessed Easter Season!

Fr. Peter Wojcik, Pastor
