April 2002 Vol. 10 No.7

Web Page: Our page keeps expanding! Pictures from the Girls' Echo 224 joined the photos from this year's previous Echo weekends. The "An OLD TIMER"S PHOTO ALBUM"continues to grow with many new pictures added. ECHO TRIVIA is up and running and ten new questions will be added. Remember you can print applications from the site so you'll never be without!
In addition we are adding two new links which we hope will be of interest to our younger generation (and some older ones too.) "lifeteen" and "bustedhalo". Check them out!

ECHO 225 will begin on Friday, April 5th and the closing will be held at Our Lady of Victory Church in Centerville, on Sunday April 7th at 7 p.m. Plan to support the team and candidates with your palanca. Once again we remind you that PALANCA means prayer and sacrifice, the lifting of our hearts and minds to Jesus to ask Him to touch the hearts of the candidates and fill them with His Spirit.

The Palanca room, located in the Centerville Recreation Building on Main St., will be open from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m Friday and from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. on Saturday. The Palanca room will not be open on Sundays.

The theme of the weekend will be With Arms Open Wide from the song by Creed:

Well I just heard the news today, It seems my life is going to change
I closed my eyes, begin to pray, Then tears of joy stream down my face.
With arms open wide, - Under the sunlight, -Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything with arms open wide.
Well I don't know if I'm ready to be the man I have to be
I'll take a breath, take her by my side. We stand in awe,
We've created life with arms open wide. Now everything has changed
I'll show you love, I'll show you everything with arms open wide
If I had just one wish, only one demand, I hope he's just like me.
I hope he understands that he can take this life and hold it by the hand
And he can greet the world with arms open wide.
