Dear Parishioners,

 

It's Lent - don't forget! All Fridays in Lent are days when Catholics refrain from eating meat. This is the minimum obligation - you can always voluntarily do more. For example, consider adding some Wednesdays or a day that has significance for you. Feel free to be creative with your Lenten observances - your prayers and works of mercy too.

 

NEXT CONFIRMATION CLASS - NEXT CLASS WILL BE FEBRUARY 20, 6:30 pm at Holy Name. Confirmation candidates need to have their Mass attendance sheets with them each Sunday so the priest at whatever Mass they attend can sign them.

 

A GROUP FOR MEN is in the works for 2024. THE FIRST MEETING IS THIS SUNDAY,  FEBRUARY 18 at 2:00 pm at the parish hall. "INTO THE BREACH" calls men to step up and into the silent crisis that is eating away at the Church as thousands of men and women and especially young people simply disengage and drift away from the practice of their Faith. When challenged by secularism, irreligion, religious indifference, or the toxic lack of sexual morality - we fold.  The times are challenging, and solidarity - standing together - is a tremendous support to each person's efforts to put our Catholic Faith into practice on a daily basis. The world needs to see Christ's light, and it has to shine through us! Please join us Sunday at 2:00 pm as we seek to revitalize and expand our practice and experience of our Catholic Faith.

 

FIRST LENTEN FISH FRY OF THE SEASON - FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 4:30 - 7:00 pm at the parish hall, preceded by Stations of the Cross at 4:00 pm at Holy Name for those who would like to follow faith with food.

We note the tragic passing of +Alexei Navalny while in a Russian prison, a man who appeared to be in good health just days previously when last seen by his mother. I don't know anyone who believes his death was an accident or due to health issues. He gave his life for the moral integrity of his country. We pray for his family and the repose of his soul. May his fight for justice not die with him, but continue to endure and inspire.

 

PLEASE remember in your prayers the sick of the parish, including Amanda Panshoukian, Maddeline West, Mallieen Stiemel, Frank Darcy, Mariella Merritt, Pamela Arnold, Shawn Leahy, Janice Grant, Lillian Herz, Rhonda and Otis Bain, Ellen Cimino, Ed Weatherby, Jeff and Vivian Limbeck, Rob Demaris, Francis Early and his great-granddaughter Frances Benson, along with their families and caregivers. Pray fervently for peace in Ukraine, Sudan, the Holy Land, and especially Gaza, where innocent civilians are dying in great numbers, and there are hostages in danger. Pray for those in other troubled areas of our world, and victims of violence everywhere. Pray that the world's shipping lanes remain open and safe for everyone. Remember the people and any of God's creatures suffering in the aftermath of various disasters, as well as those suffering from human cruelty and neglect.
