Lent: A time to plant for Easter Joy
Pope Francis challenges us to be missionary disciples who go forth in joy to share the Good News of God's love. Lent is our season to repent, to change our view and attitude towards the joy that springs from the resurrected Jesus. Join us for a parish mission on Monday and Tuesday to reflect upon the joy that God wants for us. What is keeping us from experiencing God's love? What needs to die in our lives to bring forth new life? What needs to be healed and reconciled? Our parish mission will culminate in a Reconciliation Service on Wednesday.
Monday and Tuesday, March 16th and 17th. 9:15 am and 7:00 pm (each session repeated in the morning and the evening for one hour).
English in Church in the morning and in the Community Meeting Room in the evening
Spanish in Community Meeting Room in the morning and in the Church in the evening.
May God bless you all,
Fr. Mike Lacey
On March 25, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Annunciation and we are nine months from Christmas. The Church celebrates the Annunciation of Mary nine months before the birth of the Child Jesus, in order to show that the conception of Christ takes place nine months before his birth, in conformity with the laws of nature. Today, the Church remembers the day of the conception of Christ as it was announced to Mary, the Virgin of Nazareth, the daughter of Joachim and Anne. This annunciation to Mary was accomplished through the Archangel Gabriel, who spoke in the very name of God. Gabriel means Strength of God, or Power of God.
Last weekend I spoke at all the Masses explaining the purpose and necessity of the Diocesan Capital Campaign.
