Bulletin – 2nd Sunday of Lent in a Pandemic

ZOOM MASS THIS SUNDAY! February 28, 2021 at 10 A.M. CST. All are welcome! Invite a friend! Link will come out on Saturday.

Reminder of the Ashes Ritual on Sunday–if you would like to participate, bring a fire-proof container, a palm from last year and a slip of paper with something on it that you are trying to do to better yourself this Lent. At the Offertory, we will burn our offerings and then after Communion time, we will bless ourselves and each other if others are with us.

A reminder about Communion and this is especially for those new to us. In this time of pandemic when we can’t be together, I invite you to bring your own bread, wine or juice and as always, we will bless the elements together and through our combined prayer and the power of Jesus’ Spirit, he will be present to us, in our faith. You of course can abstain if you wish.

A personal thank you to Michael Maher and his crew for representing our parish in our annual Home Delivered Meals for February ministry once again this year!


Dear Friends,

This Sunday we will again, have our monthly Zoom Mass–I am looking forward to seeing as many of you that can make it! It will be good to at least be together in this way! Do invite someone new to join us if you wish–all are welcome, you know!

Our Scriptures are challenging us this week as we attempt to understand the mind of our good God in light of the seemingly, tyrannical God of the Old Testament who asks Abraham for the life of his only son.

Come; ponder these mysteries with us!

Peace and love, stay well and safe, Pastor Kathy
