Padre's Page - March 4

Dear Friends, here’s what’s up this week:

BISHOP’S LENTEN APPEAL

Have you made a generous commitment yet?  The BLA funds programs such as seminarian formation, Catholic Charities, crisis pregnancy assistance, youth ministry, and much more….  Our parish goal is 100% of our parishioners participating, so please give:  every pledge counts!  If you haven’t yet made a pledge, you may do so easily online at our parish website or on the diocesan website:  arlingtondiocese.org

ADULT FAITH FORMATION–TALK SERIES:  THE HUMAN PERSON

Our regular faith formation series for adults of all ages continues this Monday, March 5, at 8:00 P.M. with the third of a series of talks by Prof. Mary Stanford on the theology of the body.  For the full schedule see our parish website under “News & Events.”

PRIESTS’ LENTEN DAY OF PRAYER

Fr. Dyer and I will join our bishop and all the priests of our diocese for a day of meditation and priestly fellowship this Wednesday.  This is one of several occasions throughout the year in which our priests gather to share prayer, formation and brotherhood.

LENT

I encourage you to avail yourself of the merciful forgiveness of Jeus in the Sacrament of Penance during this season of penance.  Remember too that we pray the Stations of the Cross every Friday at 7:00 P.M. in the church.  For our full Lenten and Holy Week schedule, please see the link on our parish website home page.

I remain, your servant in Christ Jesus,

Father Don
