“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear? The LORD is my life’s refuge; of whom should I be afraid? Hear, O LORD, the sound of my call; have pity on me, and answer me. Of you my heart speaks; you my glance seeks. Your presence, O LORD, I seek. Hide not your face from me; do not in anger repel your servant. You are my helper: cast me not off. I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD with courage; be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.” ~Psalm 27

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

One of the most profound conversions called for in Lent is a true acceptance of how much God loves us. Despite all of our failures and brokenness He still loves us deeply and that makes all the difference. If our prayer, fasting and almsgiving can free us up to realize this reality – that will make all the difference.

This Tuesday evening, March 19 we begin our Lenten Soup Supper Series in Room 1. We start with a simple meal at 6:00pm followed by a Lenten Presentation or Reflection at 6:45pm. This series is FREE and no registration is required. There will be delicious hearty crock pots of soup with a variety of breads, drinks and cookies. Bring the whole family!

This Tuesday we welcome Fr. Dennis Billy, Retreat Team Leader at the Notre Dame Retreat House who will speak on the theme: “Changing our Hearts: The Season of the Lenten Cross.

Join us for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament every Tuesday from 1:00 - 3:00pm. The Eucharist is a very great gift indeed. We need God’s grace to open our eyes to understand how significant this gift is!

Stations of the Cross are offered every Friday at 7:00pm in Church - following our fabulous Lenten Fish Dinners. Like the Apostles, come eat fish and then spend some time with Jesus this Lent by experiencing the Stations of the Cross.

May God Bless you this Lent,
Fr. Gonyo
