Remember that you are dust and unto dust you shall return.  These somber words echo in the ears of many of us for we have heard them at the beginning of the Lenten Season for years.  They invite us to reflect upon the reality of our limited time on this earth as well as how we have used this precious time God has given us for the good of God's kingdom.  The Lenten Season is a gift for us to grow in holiness and as disciples of Jesus.

If possible, I encourage you to take advantage of different opportunities within our parish community this Lenten Season.  Of course, we will continue to have daily Mass (unless there is a funeral) at 9:00 am Tuesday through Friday.  We hope to tape it and record it during the Lenten Season.  Adoration and Benediction will be held on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm (February 24 - March 24) and Stations of the Cross on Fridays at 6:00 pm (February 19 - March 26).  Other experiences are available as well, simply check our parish bulletin.

Bishop Warfel has requested that parishes in our diocese continue to wear masks in church for the safety of the compromised until the vaccines are readily available to all.  We are anxiously awaiting that day!  Thank you again for your cooperation.

Our faith formation for our youth and children continues to hum along.  It is heart-warming to see the commitment of our parents in helping to pass the faith on to their children.  They have been taking on a more active role.  Joyce and Tiffany have adapted their formation process facing head-on the challenges of the pandemic.  You may want to check out Tiffany's podcast on tips for the Lenten Season.  Our RCIA team continues to work hard forming our Catechumen and Candidates in the faith.  There is a level of excitement growing among them.  Easter will again be a time of great joy!

Again, thank you for your continued financial support of our parish.  We cannot survive without you!

Have a blessed Lenten Season as we journey together, striving to be a people "alive in Christ."
