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.
