Easter egg hunters had to be very hardy this year as it was freezing cold and snowing during the hunt. But there were plenty of them that stuck with it.

Mega kudos to all who decorated the churches in the Tri-Parish for Easter, especially the St. Anthony’s crew of Amy Rose, Shirley, Lauren and Dean Stubbers, Teresa Lustig and Erin Wassmuth, who did an absolutely stunning job creating a garden scene with a beautiful picture of Jesus, borrowed from Susan Groves. The music was beautifully done by the choir with solos by Dan Karel on the accordion. All of you along with Fr. Paul Wander made a wonderful experience for Holy Week and Easter.
