Can you believe that Lent is upon us? This Wednesday we will be gathering as a community to be marked with ashes to remind us to repent and believe in the Gospel. Our hearts and minds will turn to the call to pray, to fast, and to give alms as we contemplate Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross that redeemed us from our sins and opened the gates of heaven.
In the spirit of the season, you are all invited to witness the
Stations of the Cross put on by our students at next week’s
Family Event Sunday. Please join us in church immediately following the 9 a.m. Mass. Our Family Event Sundays provide our families and parishioners opportunities to participate and enjoy the same kinds of devotional activities and faith related events as those who attend the Catholic schools in our diocese. We hope you will come and pray with us next Sunday as we enter into this holy and penitential season.
Those youngsters who would like to participate will be given the opportunity to sign up today in their faith formation classes. There will be a rehearsal next Saturday morning at 11 a.m.
