Wow, our cluster mission begins tomorrow night. We have some great local talent scheduled. Each night, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday you will hear a testimony of how prayer has worked in different people’s lives. It is a time to see a homily rather than hear a homily. Confessions will be available starting at 6:00 PM.
At 7:00PM we will have the presentation, followed by a short question/answer period. Then if you would like to learn how to pray Evening Prayer of the Liturgy of Hours, you are welcomed to stay. We will have books available for you. I will give you a brief explanation of how to find the prayers in the book. Lent is a great time to learn how to pray individually or with a group a different way of prayer. If you are already praying the Liturgy of Hours, maybe this will help you go a little deeper into the prayer. Sometimes people want to pray more. That is good, but we should always make sure we are not praying for quantity but quality. By a little after 8:00 you will be on your way home.
Holy Trinity’s Spring Dinner is on the 14th of March. We are almost over 150 reservations. Call the cluster office soon to reserve your dinners. Drive by time is from 11:30 to 1:00. You can pay at that time.
Our First Communion children have a retreat Saturday, April 17. Then they and their parents will schedule a mass at their choosing to celebrate First Communion. May 5th is the Wednesday where we will be celebrating the sacrament of Confirmation with Bishop James Powers. Please continue to pray for all of our young people receiving these sacraments.
The gospel for today is better known as the Prodigal Son. Perhaps it should be renamed: The Ever-Forgiving Father. Confessions will be available one hour before the start of the cluster mission. If desired I will stay later each night as needed after the mission. Plan to get to confession this Lent.
May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
