Alleluia! He is Risen!

Christians, praise the Pascal Victim!  
Offer thankful sacrifice!
Christ the Lamb has saved the sheep;
Christ the Just One paid the price,
Reconciling sinners to the Father.

Death and life fought bitterly
For this wondrous victory;
The Lord of life who died reigns glorified!

O Mary, come and say
What you saw at break of day.
"The empty tomb of my living Lord!
I saw Christ Jesus risen and adored!"

Bright angels testified,
Shroud and grave clothes side by side!
"Yes, Christ my hope rose gloriously.
He goes before you into Galilee."

Share the good news, sing joyfully:
His death is victory!
Lord Jesus, Victor King,
Show us mercy.

Happy Easter to one and all at WCU!  And a special congratulations and "welcome home" to students Joseph Coca and Chesnee Hibbard, whom along with several others, received the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and First Holy Eucharist) and were brought into full communion with the Catholic Church last night at the Easter Vigil Mass at St. Mary's.  

I hope as many of you who can are sharing this Easter morning with friends and family at home.  Just a reminder for those on campus today that there is no Sunday Mass on campus.  Easter Masses will be offered at St. Mary's at 9:00am and 11:00am today.  Check our Facebook group for carpool information, anyone who needs a ride from campus.

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad, alleluia!
