Fortunately, we are signed up to participate at other times throughout the next 40 days. I strongly encourage everyone to watch this 22 minute video, check to see if 40 Days for Life is happening at a location near you, and then prayerfully consider speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves by participating in 40 days of prayer, fasting, and vigil.

We will be participating in Ride4US 4 the babies by walking 5 miles. Our daughter has been raising money for this event. She has surpassed her goal thanks to the generosity of family and friends, but she would like to raise even more money for this life-saving event.
Please make a donation to www.active.com/donate/ride4us/4babies and ask your friends to do the same!

Three priests were present and I was happy to see that they spanned the ages. I am guessing that one of the priests was in his 20s, another was in his 50s, and the celebrant may have been in his 80s. There are several other priests in the Archdiocese of Seattle who are also interested in saying the Mass in the "Extraordinary Form". We are praying that more priests will offer a Sunday Mass in the Tridentine Rite in the Seattle Tacoma area in the near future.

What to do:
The end result will be a beautiful cross. It will look better than the hastily made sample below.
*The negative image can also be used by cutting the cross out with an exacto knife. The finished product will then be a colorful cross, rather than colorful rays.
**We usually make Easter cards using the above feathering technique.
I would enjoy seeing any end results.
Happy Feast Day!
