We have received our second disbursement from Upon This Rock      

 

 

“Repent and believe in the Gospel.” Lent is a special time or season of the year for penitents to be reconciled; for catechumens to prepare to receive the Easter Sacraments of Baptism, Holy Communion and Confirmation; and for all of us to enter the Paschal Mystery of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The traditional disciplines of prayer, fasting and almsgiving/charity can occasion in us transformation and renewal of our Catholic faith. 

 

On Ash Wednesday and on the 1st Sunday of Lent, we asked parishioners to simply jot down a prayer petition (a concern, a worry, a hope) and place it in a box by the ambo/lectern. On the 2nd Sunday of Lent we are asking parishioners to come forward, to take one petition and to pray for that person during the remaining days of Lent. It is a beautiful circle of prayer that unites our faith community. 

 

On Tuesdays of Lent we have Soup and Scripture. The soup and bread that participants prepare and share keep the spirit of fasting and are also a prelude to our “feasting” on the Word of God – the Sunday Gospel. 

 

Catholic Charities is special opportunity for almsgiving. With our contributions, the services of Catholic Charities will continue to have an incredible ripple effect, helping to deliver hope, opportunity and second chances to our neighbors in need – young and old, near and far. St. Clare of Assisi is the patron saint of the 2018 Appeal.
