Dear Community of St. Bernard,
Jack and Joan Craig, Fr. Paul Passart, Marcin and Andrew form the Neo-Catechumenate Team that will be with us throughout the Lenten Season. They will speak at next Sunday’s Masses about the presentations they will be providing us. Please begin to mark your calendars for Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:00pm. Childcare will be provided and headsets are available for Spanish translations.
If you missed the Blessing of St. Blaise on Tuesday, kindly ask a priest or deacon, who would gladly pray the blessing for your throat so that God preserve you from all its ailments.
The pastoral council will meet Monday, February 9th at 6:30pm.
This Wednesday, Feb. 11th, Bishop Richard Lennon will be here to share a meal with the Newman Students in the Center. He will then celebrate Mass in the church around 7pm. All are welcome to come pray with our bishop and the UA Catholic Students.
Congratulations to our custodian, Ralph Reese and his wife, Jo Ann, who are celebrating 42 years of Marriage this Saturday with a blessing at the 4:30 Mass.
Then next Saturday, Feb. 14, during the 4:30 Mass, Aimee Behrend and Randy Feesler will ask God’s blessing as they begin their married life at God’s altar with us.
Thank you for your support last week to the El Salvador Mission. Our diocese has served the Church there for fifty years. Our prayers for former pastor, Fr. Paul Schindler, and the other Cleveland missionaries on assignment in Latin America.
May the Lord bless and keep you in his care.
The prayer below comes from a brilliant mind that could write tomes on theology and yet have it stir a simple desire…a love for God. Don’t forget that true love begins with God, exists in God, and never ends for God! He cannot deny himself! Pray always! Remain in His love! Fr. Dan
