    My husband and I have been attending the Church of the Redeemer for several years but this is the first time that we have been in Sarasota on Easter Sunday. Other parishioners have told us about this wonderful service but this is the first time we have been able to attend. If the Lord is willing, it will not be the last. The Mass this morning was one of the most moving that I have ever attended. The music, the ‘pomp and circumstance’ (for lack of a better phrase), the sermon . . . each in their own way reached a part of my heart and soul.
    All that I can say is, thank you!

    Thank you so much, Gail. It is always my hope that our worship will conect with the heart and soul of the people who worship here. To God be the glory. Alleluia! Christ is risen!
