Regarding “Holy Week 2021,” April 16, Page 11:

Holy Week 2021 was a time of joy for many new members of Our Lady of the Lake Parish and others throughout western Oregon. It is heartwarming to learn of the faith journeys of these Christians.

The Easter Vigil Mass also can be a time of disappointment for those participants in RCIA unable to complete the initiation process during Holy Week because their application for Declaration of Nullity (marriage annulment) is in progress but not completed. Let us pray for these holy men and women that they do not give up hope in the weeks and months to come of being fully welcomed into the Catholic Church.
