A Lenten Prayer Adventure starts February 14th. It is a retreat in your own home that requires 30-45 minutes each day for prayer. We will provide handbooks to guide your prayer each day. We also will meet on Saturdays from 9:00-10:00 a.m. to share experiences and give you the guidance and resources needed for the following week. The Saturday meetings will be helpful, but not essential parts of the prayer adventure. There are resources online if you cannot make it on Saturdays. Sign up under the LIFE banner or by calling the office. Click here to link to the online website. Jesus will be your guide on this amazing retreat adventure. Surprises can be expected along the way.
Growing Faith-Filled Kids: Lent
Here are a few ways to keep the spirit of Lent alive in your family. Plant some seeds in the dark earth & talk about & watch for the new life that will emerge from them. Encourage your children to put some of their spending money in a specially marked container for the poor, which can be given at Easter to our St. Vincent de Paul committee to help the poor in our parish. Come as a family to pray the Stations of the Cross starting at 6:00 pm on Friday evening and enjoy a soup supper with friends afterwards. Click here for a family calendar of Lent activities!

The Annual Fund Drive is beginning. We seek your help to provide for the upkeep of our beautiful buildings. Our goal this year is $175,000. The majority of the funds will be used to pay off the heating and air system for the north side of the building, but there also are some important smaller projects we need to do: 1. Replace the worn out carpet in the upstairs hallway and in the classrooms where there are holes in the carpet. 2. Repair the E.I.F.S. (stucco) to stop water leakage through the walls. 3. Repair and improve irrigation for flower beds. 4. Replace the small heating and air systems for the Blessed Sacrament Chapel and the upstairs of the Rectory. The Blessed Sacrament Chapel system cannot keep the room warm when the temperature falls below 32 degrees outside. I saw 2 different groups of people come to pray Monday and then leave quickly because it was so cold. I was saddened by the failure of hospitality.
