    I hope you had a Blessed Easter. Just wondering when the Gospel activities for the rest of April will be available.

    I tried to open the coloring page for April 29 and received the following message —

    The file is damaged and could not be repaired.

    I can’t thank you enough for the Sunday Gospel Activities. I do Children’s Liturgy at my parish, and your work helps me so very much. Thank you!
