This week we enter into the beautiful season of Lent. A time for us to step back from our usual hustle and bustle and take some time to reflect and pray about the season. In the bulletin this week is the schedule for the Lenten Season. There are so many opportunities to indulge in the practices of the Lenten Season. Please read and take advantage of them. Have a prayer-filled and holy Lent:

Land of Peace is a nonprofit organization representing Jerusalem Christian Families scheduled to visit the church  (March 16-17 / 2019) regarding selling religious articles from the Holy Land.

It seems impossible we have finished the first week of the Lenten Season. We also had a little taste of the weather that hopefully will be here soon.

I would like to take the opportunity to remind you of the Lenten Mission this coming week. We have been working for many months preparing and striving to make this a meaningful time for people in the parish. We waited until after the time change so more of the people who don't like to drive after darkness can be here.

In many parts of the world Christians, even at the risk of their own lives, do not cease to proclaim the Gospel of Christ’s peace. This strong, nonviolent witness of our brothers and sisters helps us to understand the meaning of the Cross of Jesus, of His Passion and Resurrection.

Dear Friends in Christ,

It was not only very disappointing, but horrifying, that the U.S. Senate recently failed to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Those who voted against this bill extended Roe v. Wade’s license for killing unborn children to killing newborn babies born alive following an attempted abortion.
