From Our Pastor Our Pastor's Page

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Gospel for the First Sunday of Lent finds Jesus in the wilderness being tempted by Satan. We enter into our Lenten retreat with the Lord Jesus, a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. May this time of retreat strengthen us as disciples of the Lord and bring us to the joy of Easter.

Lent is a season of being invited by God to change. To return to God with our whole heart. After receiving the sign of ashes on our foreheads we are reminded that we are mortal creatures in need of God's Mercy and Forgiveness. Please take time for prayer each day. Prayer is a lifting of the mind and heart to God. Daily prayer strengthens and deepens our relationship with God. Prayer will change your life!

There are extra opportunities to attend daily Mass during Lent. On Monday evening we celebrate a Mass and novena in honor of Our Lady, Wednesday Evening we celebrate a Healing Mass for all of those in need and Friday evening Mass is followed by the Stations of the Cross. All Masses are at 7:00pm in the Church.

Let us continue to pray for one another.

In Christ,
Fr. Thomas

Hearing Assistance Devices are available in the rear of the Church. The devices cannot be used outside the Church, as they are connected to our Church public address system.

The hearing devices are used by many at daily and Sunday Masses and other Liturgical Celebrations. PLEASE be sure to return them to the box at the back of the Church and also be certain to turn the switch OFF before placing them back into the box.
