Around the Parish – February 4, 2024
Embark on Your Lenten Journey
As we approach the season of Lent, we invite you to join us in a meaningful and reflective journey, beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 14. While not a holy day of obligation, the day marks the commencement of Lent with Masses at 8am and 6pm. It presents a wonderful opportunity for our community to come together and start our Lenten observance.
Fridays of Lent: A Spiritual Oasis
Every Friday during Lent, immerse yourself in a spiritual oasis. The evenings will include Adoration and Confessions starting at 6pm, followed by Stations of the Cross at 7pm. This is a powerful way to deepen your connection with your faith and enhance your spiritual life during this season of penance and reflection.
Join Us for Our Parish Lenten Mission
Mark your calendars for Monday, February 19, as we kick off our Parish Lenten Mission led by Fr. Maximilian Maria Jaskowak, a native son of Beloved Disciple Parish. Look for more details in this weekend’s bulletin. Take a copy home and extend the invitation to others. This mission is a remarkable opportunity to enrich your Lenten experience and strengthen your relationship with God.
Easter Raffle Preparation Begins: Collect Your Lottery Tickets
As we anticipate the joy of Easter, we are already gearing up for our Easter Raffle. In the coming weeks, we will be mailing out raffle tickets. In the meantime, we need your help collecting lottery scratch-off tickets. Drop them in the collection basket during Mass or deliver them to the parish office by mail or in person. Your generosity has always been appreciated, and we thank you in advance for your continued support.
Here are a few thoughts for the week ahead:
The moment you are ready to quit is usually the moment just before a miracle happens. Don’t give up! Your smile is your logo; your personality your is your business card; the way you make others feel is your trademark. In every disagreement in marriage, remember this one important truth: your spouse is your partner, not your enemy.
Pax et Bonum, Fr. Andy
