Holy Week 2008 Schedule - Assumption Grotto Church

"Lumen Christi!
A scene from Easter Vigil 2006
at Assumption Grotto.

With the server for the Assumption Grotto website temporarily down, you can find info here just sent from Grotto. Unfortunately, I know many people will not get to this info because so many of my hits come directly from the parish website. Spread the word on my homepage url if someone is looking for info. My guess is the server will be up and running soon. Those kinds of things are a top priority for web hosting companies and for it to be down that long means something quite serious has taken them out.
