Mass, Soup & Speaker Series
Mondays during Lent (Feb. 15-Mar. 14)
Celebrate the Church's Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy by joining us for our Lenten Mass, Soup & Speaker Series. As we focus on God's mercy, we will learn about "Salvation History and Me." This series of five educational and inspiring talks will concentrate on the story of God's mercy for us as His people and as individuals, including how we can and already do encounter God's love and Mercy in our daily lives. Our new Director of Adult Faith Formation and Mission, Matthew Flynn, will be the presenter for each night.
Each evening begins with Mass at 6 p.m., followed by the Soup Supper at 6:30 p.m. and the presentation from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. A parish ministry or ministries will provide a meal of soup and bread. Everyone is welcome to attend the entire evening or even just a part of it.
The series topics are: "Salvation History" (Feb. 15), "My Story of Salvation" (Feb. 22), "Prayer" (Feb. 29), "Fasting" (March 7), and "Almsgiving" (March 14).
Please join us for this great opportunity to grow in appreciation of God's love for us.

Women's Renewal Weekend
February 20-21
Join other women of the parish for a weekend of fun, spiritual renewal, and great food. Presenters share their own joys and struggles of faith. The Renewal Weekend starts on the morning of Saturday, Feb. 20th, and concludes the afternoon of Sunday, Feb. 21st. Contact Judy Kocinski with questions or to register at 530-0531.
