- Lent is well and truly upon us. Our Parish Mission, “What Happens When We Take God Seriously?,” with Fr. Jude Eli will be held March 24-27. All of the details are elsewhere in the bulletin. Also, the Marian Club Retreat for the ladies of the parish will be held Saturday, April 5.
- A reminder that during Lent the Knights are hosting a Savory Soup Supper at 6:00 p.m. every Friday in the Parish Hall before the Stations of the Cross at 7:00 p.m. The Stations of the Cross is a wonderful Lenten exercise, and I hope you’ll participate when you can.
- Our annual campaign for Reachout Women’s Center will begin next weekend. Simply take a cross off the large cross in the narthex and return the requested item to the narthex the following weekend. The campaign will run through Sunday, March 30.
- As I announced at my Masses last weekend, we have made our goal for the Annual Catholic Appeal. In addition to that, an anonymous angel made an additional $200,000 donation. If you can still give, I know that I and the bishop would appreciate it. It is only because of parishes like ours that can achieve more than their goal that the programs can be funded. There are so many parishes that struggle to make their goal in this economy. Your generosity to the appeal and so many other programs of the diocese that help the poor is appreciated.
Blessings . . . Fr. John
