Lent is our annual opportunity to increase our prayer, fasting and almsgiving. It is a time to reassess and ask, "Am I close to the Lord as I should be?" He calls you each day to come closer to Him. So, we encourage you to take advantage of those many opportunities.
ALSO, we have our Parish Mission for Lent, Mar. 31 - Apr. 3. "Blessed + Broken - How Christians Are To Respond To Troubled Times" is the theme. Please join us for these days to grow stronger in your faith.
