Announcements

Todays’ readings are filled,
not only with examples of God’s abundant mercy and love, but of right living. Paul reminds us that everything outside of the pursuit of Christ is rubbish. And if we are to call ourselves followers of Christ, we must keep our focus on what lies ahead. Let us begin by letting go of our judgments and our earthly desires so we may enter into this time with our minds and hearts lifted completely to God.

Every Friday in church during Lent
we will pray the Stations of the Cross at 6:30 pm followed by a Lenten Supper in the Parish Hall. These Stations will replace the usual morning Mass each Friday. This is another example of “adding on” an activity that will help you appraise your life journey. Join us this coming Friday evening.

EVERY FRIDAY EVENING DURING THE LENTEN SEASON
6:30 PM - STATIONS OF THE CROSS
Followed by a Lenten meal in the Parish Hall for all who would like to attend.

During Lent we encourage all to participate in CRS Rice Bowl,
a faith-in-action program that invites us to encounter the needs of the world with the hope of the Resurrection. Rice Bowl boxes are available at the entrance of church. Please take one, and thank you for participating.
