Lent, let light shine out of darkness...

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Jesus,  trust in You! The famous acclamation from the Divine Mercy Chaplet. What a wonderful theme for reflection this would be for the quickly approaching holy penitential season of Lent! Meditating on all the Lord does for us, these words would not only be a short, convenient ejaculation for us to pray, but they will also serve us as a reminder of our closeness to the Lord.

ASH WEDNESDAY – February 26th will begin the holy, penitential season of Lent! Ashes, of course, will be distributed after the homily at each Mass as well as during the 4:30 P.M. prayer service. When you come for ashes, please stay at Mass to receive the Holy Eucharist.

Watch for our annual Easter mailing, which is sent to our registered families. All our services from weekly confessions to the complete Holy Week schedule and beyond are included for you to partake. We will offer a weekly program furnished by our parish deacons and a Lenten Mission and a penance service. These are only a few things for you to consider for Lent.

March 20th the Cathedral Deanery of parishes will sponsor another 24 Hours with the Lord from 7:00 P.M. to 7:00 A.M. which will include all night adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, confessions, talks and prayers. Perfect for a Lenten exercise!

Our seminarian, David Keyes, will be ordained to the diaconate by Bishop Checchio here in the Cathedral on the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord Wednesday, March 25th at 10:00 A.M. Please keep David in prayer as he journeys to the Holy Priesthood.

Stations of the Cross will be prayed every Friday during Lent at 12:10 P.M. and at 7:00 P.M. in addition to the recitation of the Rosary every morning following the 8:00 A.M. Mass. We also continue our Consecration to the Lord through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

We all need Jesus’ Divine Mercy! We and our families can benefit from the Lord’s generous graciousness by humbly acknowledging our sins this Lent and appealing for his grace and forgiveness. Make time for the Sacrament of Penance [when was the last time?] now that it’s Lent to make peace with the Lord and with each other and to receive the Lord in Holy Communion worthily [maybe in a long time].

Please bring your children to Church for Mass and other forms of worship.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!

In Christ’s service,

Rev. Msgr. Robert J. Zamorski
Rector
