We continue with our prayer, fasting, and giving for the Season of Lent. Here are the activities planned for this Fourth Week of Lent.
Stations of the Cross – Led by LJM Gun Sense: For the Common Good
Please join us in the chapel for a Stations of the Cross hosted by our Gun Sense: For the Common Good team. Amidst our busy schedules, take time this Lenten season to meditate on the burdens, sorrows, and crosses our community carries. We hope you can pray with us for an end to the violence experienced near our homes, in our neighborhoods, and for our City.
Youth Ministry Lenten Dinner – Grilled Cheese & Soup
Please join us for the Youth Ministry Lenten Dinner.
Girl Scouts Diaper Drive
In the Acts of the Apostles, we hear about the early Christian communities and their habits of sharing their resources among one another, using their funds to care for the widows and orphans of their community. Later we hear that the widows of the Hellenists – outsiders – were not being cared for in the same way as the Hebrew widows, and the apostles appointed deacons to oversee the care of all so that outsiders would not be neglected.
We encourage you this week to pay attention to your financial giving. Our Parish Lenten Project – renewing the funds of the Mandeville Scholarship, the CRS Rice Bowl sitting on your table at home, the upcoming Diaper Drive hosted by our Girl Scouts, and our parish Tree of Mercy – all of these are ways we can reach out from within our community to care for and lift up others. Let’s widen our Catholic community in that way this week.
Mark your calendars for our upcoming Lenten Compline.
