Lent: A time to plant for Easter Joy
Pope Francis challenges us to be missionary disciples who go forth in joy to share the Good News of God's love. Lent is our season to repent, to change our view and attitude towards the joy that springs from the resurrected Jesus. Join us for a parish mission on Monday and Tuesday to reflect upon the joy that God wants for us. What is keeping us from experiencing God's love? What needs to die in our lives to bring forth new life? What needs to be healed and reconciled? Our parish mission will culminate in a Reconciliation Service on Wednesday.
Monday and Tuesday, March 16th and 17th. 9:15 am and 7:00 pm (each session repeated in the morning and the evening for one hour).
English in Church in the morning and in the Community Meeting Room in the evening
Spanish in Community Meeting Room in the morning and in the Church in the evening.
May God bless you all,
Fr. Mike Lacey
A few days ago, I went to Saint Patrick's Seminary to visit my former teachers and my friends. I got into the main chapel and found at back pew a hard copy of Pope Francis's Message for Lent. It caught my attention that some paragraphs were underlined. I want to share with you these paragraphs as we continue our Lenten journey toward Easter. Next week, I'll have an important article dedicated to family life and Lent.
Last weekend I spoke at all the Masses explaining the purpose and necessity of the Diocesan Capital Campaign.
Please pray for the success of the Campaign.
In case you have not received your invitation to attend one of the reception events. I'm printing it here for
your convenience. By coming to one of the reception events you will get information for the purpose of the
campaign and have your questions answered.
