About Kristen Graham

I attended the Girard, KS School District from K-12. Then moved onto Pittsburg State University to get a Bachelor of Technology in Commercial Graphics. While at PSU, I was employed by Student Publications for 3 years where I experienced many rolls... Newspaper Page Layout Designer, Yearbook Editor in Chief and Graphic Designer, and Advertising Representative. It was also in my years at PSU that I met my wonderful husband Doug. My husband and I have settled back in my hometown where we are close to both of our wonderful families. I have now been in the print industry for 2 years (post college), working as a Graphic Designer and Type Setter for a Vender that coats and print labels using a Flexographic Press. I try and keep involved in the Graphic Industry by taking on small side projects... invitations, websites and various commercial items.

Easter Weekend

April 7th, 2012 | Posted by Kristen Graham in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Easter Weekend)

“Once more we are ushered into this another opportunity to experience the richness of God’s mercy and love as we recall His Passion, Death,and Resurrection. You must be familiar with the Latin phrase “Paschal Triduum.” “Paschal” (Latin, paschalis = of or pertaining to the Passover) is the adjective formed from the English word “Pasch”, a preferable alternative to the more common “Easter” (Greek and Latin, Pascha, from the Hebrew Pesah or Pesach = Passover). The Latin word “triduum” is a space or  period of three days which includes the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, the Lord’s death on Good Friday, and His Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Because this is a week where we are given a chance to experience God’s divine love more deeply in our lives, it is my hope that we will devote our hearts and minds to penance, reflection, and worship more specifically during this three days. On Holy Saturday, we believe that our Lord is not yet risen from the dead. It has been a part of our Catholic tradition to observe a solemn silence and devote our time to prayer and reflection during this day.”   Excerpt from April 1st Notes From the Pastor
