Hello Gr. 1,3-8 Families!

Sunday Gospel Background: Sunday’s Gospel tells about the faith of some of Jesus’ friends and the result of that faith—Lazarus being raised from death. The Gospel calls us to believe that Jesus can raise us back to life and share God’s life forever. Readings: Ezekiel 37:12–14; Romans 8:8–11; John 11:1–45 (https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/032623.cfm.)
