Dear Fellow Parishioners,
Participation in the Soup and Stations of the Cross on the Fridays in Lent has been great in the last few years. This year we’ll be doing something slightly different to enhance an already good thing. In the last few years we had a soup dinner followed by Stations in English, and then Stations in Spanish. This year we will have the Stations in English, followed by the soup dinner, and then Stations in Spanish. This way we can share a truly communal supper between the Stations in two languages. (See the time schedule in this bulletin.) Thanks to Deacon Brian Thompson who will be coordinating the endeavor this year. The first Friday of Lent is 7 March, so I hope you plan to attend.
Lent provides us with the perfect opportunity to truly reflect on the journey that Jesus took in those last days; meditating on the needlessness of his death sentence, the cruelty of those around him, and his ultimately giving his life for us. Plan to join your fellow parishioners each Friday this Lent to remember this journey that we call The Passion of Christ to ponder God’s love for us and discern how we can respond to that love. If you have not experienced this type of prayer please plan to participate because this might be the Lent that makes a difference in your life.
Fr. Kevin Carlin Kennedy
