THE FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT
Sunday, February 18, 2018

FROM THE DESK OF FR. JOHN:

1.         Confirmation

I would like to congratulate the young people who were Confirmed last weekend and I am looking forward to Confirming more young people this afternoon.  May you rely on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in your daily life.

2.         First Communion

Please pray for the children in Grade two who have now started their preparation for this very important Sacrament. Also keep their families in your prayers.
                       
3.         Way of the Cross

Just a reminder that during Lent, the Way of the Cross will take place on Fridays at 7:00pm. It will be led by the various groups of the parish. Let us walk the “Via Delorosa” with the Lord.

4.         Lenten Reflections on the Sunday Readings

We will gather for about an hour and preview and discuss the upcoming Sunday Readings. These gatherings will be held after the 7:00pm Tuesday evening Masses on Feb. 20, Feb 27, March 6, March 13 and March 20. I am certain that reflecting on the readings of the coming Sunday will be an excellent way to enter fully into the Season of Lent and I encourage you to consider taking advantage of this opportunity. We will be meeting in the Conference Room.

5.         Fish Dinners

Once again we will be having Fish Dinners on the Fridays of Lent.

Have a great week,

Fr. John
