2022 Easter Dinner Wine Pairings

$19/bottle – Easter dinner is a special occasion so it’s a great excuse to break out a really nice Cabernet Sauvignon. This is everyone’s favorite red wine varietal for lamb pairing, and all of your guests will appreciate a bottle of Banshee from Paso Robles. Of course it’s also a great match for red wine sauce.

$22/bottle – White wine lovers are not shut out here though. Wow your guests with a bottle of Bertrand Art de Vivre from France and enjoy some flowers in the ceramic bottle after the wine is gone.

$22/bottle – Ham is a favorite entrée for Easter dinner and there are many great wines that pair perfectly with this extra savory meat. My personal favorite is a Gewürztraminer. 

$23/bottle – Red wine lovers can enjoy a good Zinfandel whether you’re going with a traditional baked ham or trying something new this year. Set your holiday table with an Edmeades Zinfandel.

Reserve yours today!  Pickup will be Wednesday the 13th in the afternoon.

Franciscan Corner 

Alleluia! The one who was humiliated, who was marked as a fool, is celebrated. Francis of Assis was canonized within 2 years of his death.. The one stripped of all is revered as Saint! What did his mother and father think? Alleluia! The one who was humiliated, who was marked as a fool, lives! Jesus of Nazareth lives! We know what the soldiers thought. They tried to cover it up. But Mary of Magdala knew the truth. She had seen him, He had spoken to her and told her to go tell the disciples! Her words have spread down the ages, her words have spread to the ends of the earth. He IS ALIVE! Alleluia! Happy Easter!

(Thank you to Sr. Joanne for sharing these Franciscan reflections with us.)

Message from the Pastoral Team About Relaxing of the Mask Mandate

According to the Washington State Department of Health, as of Saturday, March 12th, 2022, masking will be optional in indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status.

Although this is a relaxation in mask protocols, if you or your family members feel more comfortable wearing a mask, you are certainly welcome to continue doing so. As a welcoming and accepting community, we must remain respectful of others’ feelings and not judge others’ personal decisions. Father Patrick, members of the Pastoral Team who assist him at Mass, and ministers on the altar will continue to wear masks and follow Covid safety protocols during Mass. The Pastoral Team asks that you prayerfully consider your comfort level, as well as the safety of the vulnerable in our community, when you make a decision for yourself and your family members. We ask for your patience and understanding as the Pastoral Team continues to monitor and carefully consider decisions about any changes to our Covid safety protocols.
