Our parish was founded on Easter Sunday, March 29, 1970 with approximately 380 families with Fr. Philip Poirier as Pastor. The parishioners chose the name “The Church of the Resurrection” to link the parish with the Phoenix Bird, ancient symbol of the Easter mystery and to mark the fact that the first Masses would be celebrated on Easter.
