Today the Church celebrates the first of three scrutinies with the Elect and their communities. The scriptures are chosen explicitly to help the Elect as they undergo their final preparations for the Easter sacraments. The baptized too can scrutinize their own lives today, following the example of the Elect in allowing our Lord to uncover and heal all that is weak and sinful in the way we live.
During Lent Stations of the Cross will be said every Friday at 6:00PM. Let us come and pray.
Please join us in St. Benedict’s Parish Hall on March 24th, from 5:00-7:00PM For the Lenten Fish Fry. The proceeds from this event will go to Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
St. Benedict’s Bible Study meets every Tuesday evening from 7:00PM – 8:00PM in the Parish Hall. All are welcome to join us.
***DSA 2017: “Your every action should be done with love.” 1Cor 16:14, is the theme of the 2017 Diocesan Support Appeal. This week, you should receive a letter or postcard from Bishop Jugis asking for your generous support of the DSA; and next weekend we will view the DSA video, so we can all have an understanding of how the funds given to the DSA impact our diocese. Bishop Jugis asks each of us to prayerfully consider a gift to the DSA as a way of serving Christ through service to thousands of Catholics in Western North Carolina.
