Lenten Soup Suppers (and Stations of the Cross): Fridays, February 23, March 9 & 23
Soup suppers are hosted by different parish ministries during Lent. They allow parishioners to come and enjoy a simple dinner and fellowship. All soups are made by host volunteers and are absolutely delicious! Proceeds are donated to Assumption College for Sisters.
Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to see old friends and neighbors and meet new ones. Spend time with new friends by sharing a pew. The suppers begin at 6pm and are followed by Family Stations of the Cross in the Church at 7pm.
Participate by attending the supper or joining in the fun of cooking, set up or reading Stations of the Cross. Many students take this opportunity to earn community service hours by serving and cleanup.
Hope to see you there! Remember, no donation of time or item is too small.
Interested? Call Anne Lynch 766-7900 x7.
Annual Parish Mission: Sunday, March 4th – Tuesday, March 6th (7 pm each night in the Church)
Presented by Brother Laughlan Sofield, S.T.
Brother Sofield, is a member of the Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity. He served as the director of the Missionary Servant Center for Collaborative Ministry; director of the Washington Archdiocesan Consultation and Counseling Center; and assistant director of the Center for Religion and Psychiatry, Washington, DC. He has worked as a speaker and consultant in more than three hundred dioceses on six continents and served on the faculty of or lectured at many colleges and universities in the United States and abroad. He has developed an outline for our mission flowing from Pope Francis’ designation of this year as an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. He invites all our parishioners and their friends to join us with the following call:
“The motto that Pope Francis has chosen for this Year of Mercy is, Merciful Like the Father. Pope Francis reminds us that Mercy is the bridge that connects God and humanity, opening our hearts to the hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness. Our Parish Mission will build on this theme in exploring what this means practically in the ways we live our lives each day. Pope Francis emphasizes three major areas related to mercy, forgiveness, compassion and joy. During the mission we will focus on:
• a deeper understanding of forgiveness, distinguishing between forgiveness and reconciliation;
• modeling Jesus who, “looked upon the crowds and had compassion on them”;
• and, embracing the joy in discovering where and how God is calling us to witness to Him in our daily lives.”
