For more information CLICK above on “Lenten Mission”We are pleased to have Franciscan Father Albert Haase, OFM here this week to give us food for thought this Lent. The Theme of this Mission: The Three Challenges of Jesus. His insights will help prepare us for the renewal of our Baptismal Promises on Easter Sunday.
Join us from 7:00-8:00pm this Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (Feb. 19-21).
Free parking is available in our parish lots or in the Polsky Parking Garage.
Other Lenten practices:
1. ADORATION before the Blessed Sacrament is available at St. Bernard in the Chapel off the lower parking lot. Spending time in silence (even just 5 minutes) in the Presence of Christ in the Eucharist is an opportunity for many graces. He is waiting for you!
2. Make A GOOD CONFESSION of sin. Yes, Jesus’ message to all is to “Repent”. We don’t have to wait until Lent or until our child is making their First Confession. Today is the day and the proper hour to turn from sin and walk more closely with God. This Sacrament is celebrated Saturday afternoons from 3:00-4:00 pm or by appointment.
