Greetings St. Olaf family,
Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! ALLELUIA! This is our 3rd Sunday of Easter. This weekend we will reflect on the story of our risen Savior eating breakfast with his disciples. Jesus asks us again and again: Do you love me? And Jesus invites us, again and again, to follow him, bringing the Easter life to others.
We will celebrate the baptism of Aria Felch this weekend! Thanks be to God.
