Background on the Gospel Reading
Today’s reading from the Gospel of John is proclaimed on the Second Sunday of Easter in each of the lectionary cycles. This fact alone should alert us to the significance of the encounters with the resurrected Jesus that are described in this reading. This Gospel combines two scenes: Jesus’ appearance to his disciples after his Resurrection and Jesus’ dialogue with Thomas, the disciple who doubted.
Acts of the Apostles 4:32-35
The first Christian community shared their possessions, and no one was needy.
The Lord’s mercy endures forever.
1 John 5:1-6
Those who love God keep his commandments.
Thomas believes because he sees Jesus.

Parish Religion Program
Registration for our Parish Religion Program is now open. There are three options: Online PRP, Sunday PRP, and Summer PRP. Details about each can be found
. Children are required to have 2 years of religious education to receive a Sacrament. Preparation for Confirmation requires an additional component from our standard religious education programs during the Sacramental year. The St. Margaret of York Catholic Church Parish Religion Program assists the parents (the primary catechists) in the faith formation of their children to know, love, and serve Jesus. Questions about our PRP programs or for help deciding which program is right for your children and family please contact our Coordinator of Religious Education, Melissa Capella.
