A Message from Father Nathan
My dearest people who are all close to my heart!
Lots of love and blessings to you all.
He is Risen!
Celebrate the Joy of Easter.
Lent is over and it is now time to celebrate the great joy of Easter!
At the Easter Vigil, the Exsultet is sung as Mass begins in darkness, illumined only by candles throughout the church. The Exsultet is a beautiful hymn of rejoicing in Christ’s triumph of sin and death.
O Truly necessary sin of adam, destroyed completely by the Death of Christ! O happy fault that earned for us so great, so glorious a Redeemer!
God, in His perfect wisdom and love, took sin and the consequence of sin (death) and used them as the means of the salvation of the world. That’s what Easter is all about!
Jesus destroyed sin
Jesus destroyed sin by destroying the consequences of sin which is death. Death loses in the Resurrection! Jesus’ Resurrection takes away the effects of all sin for those who cling to Him.
Cling to the Resurrected Lord
We must ‘cling” to our resurrected Lord! We must cling to Jesus who is alive and well. We must cling to His Resurrection and strive to share in it. How we cling to our Resurrection Lord? There are many ways. Here is one.
Easter means that nothing can keep us from the joy that God wants to give us. Nothing can steal that joy away. Know that God wants you to experience the joy of Easter in your life. Let Him fill you with hope and with the joy that only the Resurrection can bring. God wants Easter to begin now in our lives!
Prayers and blessings to you all. Special appreciation to all those involved throughout this Lent in a particular manner, in this holy week, for the better and meaningful celebrations of the liturgy.
God bless you all. Happy Easter!
Ever wanting to be faithful to your service,
With love and blessings,
—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

Praying a rosary has been a tradition in the Church for a long time. Praying the rosary is such a powerful means to reach Jesus. The rosary is the vehicle for Mary to intercede to her Son Jesus. It’s an extremely powerful weapon and Catholics need to hold it in their pocket at times.
