Week of March 6-12 2022

The Lenten season is in full swing now and I hope everyone using this time for prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Don’t forget this Friday, March 18 we are scheduled to serve dinner to the homeless REST Program. If you are planning on making and dropping off food please reply to this email so I know we are bringing enough. Food needs to be dropped off between 5:30-6:00PM

This Wednesday at 6:30PM the Inquirers and Catechumens will be participating in the Lenten Adoration hour inside the church. You do not need to come to the Assisi Room. Go straight into the church. Fr Avram starts the session at 6:30pm so it would be good to get their a little early.

Here is the flyer for the event

If you are the Elect who will be receiving your sacraments this Easter please come to the Assisi Room at 6:30pm as normal. We will be discussing your upcoming Presentation of the Creed and Confirmation Saints.

Pray the Stations of the Cross with Fr. Mark Toups

Stations of the Cross every Friday during Lent

Every Friday night our church holds Stations of the Cross at 6pm inside the church. We pray and meditate on the last hours of Jesus’s life leading up to his death. The stations take about 25 minutes then a soup supper is served in the Assisi Room.

If you cannot join us take some time to watch the video above to pray the Stations of the Cross at home.

This coming Sunday, March 20 at 10am Mass our Catechumens who will be received into the Catholic Church this Easter will have their first Scrutinies. And all the Elect will receive the Presentation of the Creed.

The gospel reading for this coming Sunday is the story of the woman at the well. It is one of my favorite gospel readings. If you haven’t yet watched “The Chosen” they do a great job depicting this story. Watch it below.

The Chosen   Jesus and the Samaritan Woman At The Well

Even if you are not participating in this rite on Sunday please come to support these Candidates and Catechumens and participate in the Breaking Open the Word dismissal after the homily.
