Many people may not be aware that we have a very active Bereavement Ministry.  One of the offerings is that at Easter the Confirmation class takes an Easter plant to each family who had someone from their family buried during the previous year from Mother of Divine Providence Parish.  Our Director of Religious Education, Lauren Joyce, has been helping me with this experience and has received many wonderful responses from those who received a plant.  But we have also heard from those who helped with this event.  The following are some comments from both:  “Operation Resurrection was a very good idea.  One elderly woman who lost her husband cried when we gave her the flowers.  She was so touched.  I think it is good for the children to deliver the flowers and cards personally.  This keeps everyone connected to MDP.”  Another said:  “Thank you for your prayers and the beautiful Easter lily plant in memory of our sister.”  Special thanks to all those who participated in Operation Resurrection.  Our hope is that it will be able to continue next year.
