*** A few days ago we may have been told, “Repent, and believe in the Gospel,” as ashes were placed on our foreheads. We hear these words again in today’s Gospel. Lent is an appropriate occasion to consider our sins, promise to turn back to God, and place our trust in the One who has power over sin and death. As we begin the first week of Lent, let us take these words to heart.
*** DSA 2018: As we look at our lives and the many ways God has blessed us, let us give back a proportionate gift to the Diocesan Support Appeal as a way of saying thank you to the Lord. God will never be outdone in generosity.
*** Every Friday of Lent, Stations of the Cross will be at 6:00pm.
*** Faith Formation Second Grade Class has prepared for and will celebrate First Penance on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 10:30am. Please keep them in your prayers.
*** During Lent, all parishioners are welcome to join us in the parish hall at 10:30AM as the children of St. Benedict’s Faith Formation pray the Stations of the Cross.
***All youth are invited to join us at Belmont Abbey College for the annual Diocese of Charlotte Bishop’s Youth Pilgrimage on Saturday, April 7, 2018 from 9:00am-3:00pm. For more information and to register, please contact Lynne McGrath at 336-272-0303.
