On Wednesday of this week, I will join with all of the priests in the Diocese for an evening of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. From 5-8pm, every church in the diocese will be open for the sacrament of penance. As I mentioned last week, don’t worry if you “forgot how to do it.” I am happy to guide you, as well as to offer a printed Act of Contrition. Whether you have been away a long time, or use the sacrament often, this is a great opportunity during Lent for you to reflect on your life. We also have confessions every Saturday during Lent from 4-4:30pm if that is more convenient for you.
Thanks to all of you who supported our Winter Cabaret last month. Although we had some sound problems in the packed gym, I think everyone had a great time catching up with old friends and making new ones. Thanks to Kathleen and Leo Pullella who – with their dedicated committee – did an amazing job with the food and other details of the evening. Anne Marie Petrelli also did a great job transforming our gym into a “cabaret,” and the numerous volunteers throughout the evening all made for a great event. The profit for this “fun-raiser” was more than $7,000. Funds will be used for various capital improvement projects throughout the parish.
Although we have countless baptisms for newborn infants in the parish, many young couples continue to struggle with infertility. At each baptism, they experience joy for the young family yet sorrow for themselves, and it can be a very difficult time in a marriage. On Monday, March 16th, we will have an evening prayer service followed by reflection for couples struggling with infertility. The service will be held at 7pm in church. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at the rectory. As a parish, let us continue to pray for these young couples that they may stay strong in their relationships with each other and with God.
Please join us after the two Sunday masses this weekend for coffee and donuts in the parish hall. Also, don’t forget our fish fries ever Friday from 5-8pm. Dine-in or take-out, we promise a great meal!
