    EASTER SUNDAY COLLECTION FOR THE

    PRIESTS’ RETIREMENT FUND Each year on Easter Sunday, a special collection is taken up to benefit the Retirement

    Fund for the priests of the Diocese of Savannah. This collection provides a very important contribution to the pension fund for our diocesan priests. When a diocesan priest retires, he must provide for himself primarily through the pension he receives

    from the Diocese of Savannah and Social Security insurance. The number of priests retiring will increase in the next ten to fifteen years. Your contribution to this important collection will help our retired priests take care of themselves in their later years. We thank you for your generosity

    and gratitude for the service of the priests of the diocese.

    Alleluia, He is Risen!Alleluia, He is Risen!Alleluia, He is Risen!Alleluia, He is Risen! Fr. Michael J. Kavanaugh, Monsignor P. James Costigan and the Parish Office Staff wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Easter. Our thanks to the St. Peter the Apostle School’s 4th grade class and to the teenagers in Lifeteen for so beautifully performing the two Living Stations during Lent. A big thanks also goes to their teachers and advisors who coordinated those

    very moving performances. Many thanks to the Knights of Columbus for two wonderful Fish Frys during Lent. As usual, the food was delicious and enjoyed by many parishioners and friends of St. Peter the Apostle Parish. Our thanks also goes to all who prepared for and helped us celebrate the Liturgies of Holy Week and Easter and to all those who prepared the church for our beautiful Easter celebration. We offer our congratulations to the members of the R.C.I.A. class who were received into the church on Holy Saturday evening. We are happy to welcome the newest members of our faith.

    May God bless you all on this joyous Easter morning!May God bless you all on this joyous Easter morning!May God bless you all on this joyous Easter morning!May God bless you all on this joyous Easter morning!

    Stewardship

    Reflections Catholic stewards act out of gratitude. They recognize that all good things come from God and there is a need to give back in

    thanksgiving. Catholic stewards are motivated by gratitude to share their time, talent and treasure with others for the sake of the Kingdom.
