Getting Ready for Lent: The season of Lent began this year on Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2024, and concludes when the Paschal Triduum of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of the Lord begins at the start of the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, March 28, 2024. The following practices and regulations are promulgated and binding for all Latin Rite Catholics in the Diocese of Erie for Lent and the Paschal Triduum, 2024. Traditional Lenten practices of PRAYER, FASTING, and ALSMGIVING, and other forms of self-denial, are recommended most warmly by the Church. Daily Mass is particularly encouraged. ASH WEDNESDAY, ALL FRIDAYS IN LENT, and GOOD FRIDAY are days of abstinence from eating meat for those 14 years of age and older.

A Season for Reflection: During this holy time, we are called to pause and pay closer attention to our relationship with God and our neighbors. Reflect on how the Lenten pillars of prayer, fasting and almsgiving can guide your journey and how the Eucharist helps us to live in solidarity with our sisters and brothers around the world. Visit crsricebowl.org to learn more and read this week’s Story of Hope.

CRS Rice Bowl: During Lent, we are invited to deepen our relationship and unite our hearts more fully with God and with one another in an intentional way through the Catholic tradition of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. This Lent fast in solidarity with those of our neighbors who are hungry and who struggle to meet basic needs. Donate money saved while fasting to CRS Rice Bowl and help support local organizations such as Prince of Peace Center.

Help Wanted! In search of someone with sewing skills! The Liturgical Environment Committee is looking for someone to hem selected fabrics. If you are able and interested, please leave your name and contact information on the door of the work room, located across from the rest rooms. Also, Ash Wednesday is on the 14th of February and the Liturgical Environment Committee is asking for assistance as the decor changes once more. The meeting will be taking place on Wednesday, the 13th of February, 7-9 pm. Thank you for your help!

 

Gardeners Needed: Do you have a green thumb? Do you enjoy working with plants? Have you ever noticed all the plants that thrive in the church and other areas of the building? Fran and Bill Zenobi have faithfully attended to these plants and flowers for the past 8 years! And we are so very thankful! However, they have decided it is time for them to retire from their ministry. So alas, it's time for a new gardener to take over. If you think you, or you and a partner would enjoy this ministry, please call the office and speak to the parish secretary at 724-748-6700, ext. 100.
