*** A month ago we received ashes on our foreheads as Lent began. We may have chosen to give up something or to do something special during this penitential season. Where do we stand now with that commitment we made? Have we slid back into our old ways from time to time? Have we totally forgotten about it? Well, it’s not too late. Always the Lord is calling us to follow him, no matter what has come before.
*** St. Benedict’s penance service will be this coming Tuesday, March 20th at 6:30PM. Let us come and prepare for the Easter.
*** Ministers needed for the Holy week and Easter Vigil. Sign-up sheets are available at both vestibules. Please do it so. Thank you for your service.
***There will be a second collection this weekend for Easter Flowers.
Thank you for your generous support.
*** Every Friday of Lent, Stations of the Cross will be at 6:00pm.
*** St. Benedict’s new Parish Directories are in and may be picked up after Mass. Please see the ushers to receive your copy.
*** 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.
