This is the First Sunday of Lent! We begin our spiritual journey toward Easter. It is a time of grace and renewal. Let’s all open our hearts to whatever God might intend for us throughout the forty days of Lent.
Also, you will notice that there are nomination forms available in the church as we are looking for new members for our Parish Pastoral Council. The Parish Pastoral Council is a visioning body that sets goals and objectives for our parish in the future. Please nominate an individual or individuals in the parish that would enable us to look to the future in a positive way. This is not an election, but it is a discernment process that will take place after Easter to enable us to continue the work of this important council. There will be more information in the bulletin in the weeks to come.
Also, we welcome Fr. Dan Cambra to our parish. He will be leading us in a parish mission and retreat as we begin Lent, see page 6 for details. May God continue to bless all of our efforts to “courageously live the Gospel”, as Lent begins!
And let us continue to pray for one another.
