–Deacon Richard Santana
Some might say that Anthony DiBiase was handicapped, or in some way disabled, but they did not know Anthony.

A Look Back:
A Blessed Easter Week at Emmanuel Church
From Palm Sunday through the Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and into Easter Sunday this past Holy Week was a solemn and faith-renewing experience for our Emmanuel family. And the Knights of Blessed Mother Council were present throughout.
We sponsored our annual RCIA reception to honor all our new Catholic family members after the vigil mass on Saturday evening.
And to add some family fun to the celebration we held our annual Easter egg hunt (a.k.a. The Best 7 Minutes of the Year) for the young people and families of Emmanuel Parish…
