Message from Fr. Colin

In his meditation on the readings for the Second Sunday in Lent, Fr Aiden Nichols points out that reflecting on the Transfiguration at this time in the liturgical year shows us that the final word in the struggle of the Christian life lies not with struggle, but with seeing the Glory of God. Beholding the glory of the Lord, standing in the very presence of God, is the goal to which our Lenten observances - indeed all of our Christian discipline - leads. It is that which draws us through the trials & struggles we face in the life of faith, & which gives us strength in our weaknesses & times of despair. As St Paul says: I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. (Rom 8:18)

 

Thou hast said, “Seek ye my face.” My heart says to thee, “Thy face, Lord, do I seek.”  (Psalm 27:8) As we journey through Lent, indeed through all of the struggles of the present time, let us always keep this seeking central to our lives so that, in the words of St. Paul, we may always press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus; which is to see the Glory of God.

 

'Together in Action' Campaign Begins

 

As we begin Lent we also begin our Together in Action campaign. 

In addition to supporting outside charitable agencies, the TIA supports much that goes on in the diocese, including funding our seminarians and looking after our retired priests. 

 

Our parish's goal for Together in Action this year is $60,247. Let us continue the work of charity & generosity which the Lord calls us to, & share the blessings which He has bestowed upon us.

News from the Parish

Please register for mass & stay for the prayer, or sign in after mass to attend the devotion.

Every stop the Silver Rose makes throughout the pilgrimage is a rosary-centered occasion for Knights, parishioners and community members to pray for respect for life

 

This is a very appropriate devotion for those who cannot attend any other 40 Days for Life services.

At this prayer service, we are fortunate to host one of the eight silver roses traversing North America to arrive in Mexico City at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe for her feast day December 12, 2021.

The Knights of Columbus' Silver Rose Campaign began with a live rose in 1960.

Wednesdays during Lent

6 - 8 pm in the church

 

Fr Colin & Fr George will be available for confession on Lenten Wednesday evenings. This is in place of a penitential service.

 

For these Wednesday evenings, no registration is required. Please enter the church by the main doors, sign in, sanitize your hands, & line up (Fr Colin will be in the prayer room & Fr George will be in his confessional).

Mask use is mandatory for everyone who enters our churches and offices. Parishioners who are not able to wear a mask for medical reasons can be exempt from this regulation except when receiving Holy Communion. All parishioners must wear masks when lining up for the distribution of Holy Communion, including those receiving a blessing.

 

Since the dispensation from the Sunday Obligation still applies, it is encouraged if anyone is unable to wear a mask or has concerns about exposure or their safety, that they participate in mass virtually via the many options available.

 

Close contacts must be limited to people in the same household.

 

Physical distancing between households must be maintained at all times, including after mass.

 

Please do not congregate or gather at any time or anywhere before or after mass.

 

Anyone who has even the slightest symptoms or feelings of sickness must remain home.
