Blessed + Broken - How Christians Are To Respond To Troubled Times
St. Mary Parish welcomes Fr. Kevin Leidich, SJ for a Lent mission this Mar. 31-Apr. 3. Fr. Kevin will speak to us about how Christians are to respond to troubled times through the lens of the Last Supper discourses that Jesus taught his Apostles. All parishioners are encouraged to attend all of the talks, but please come to as many of them as you can.
We'll kick off on Sun. March 31 when Fr. Kevin will celebrate the 11am Mass and will give the first Mission talk immediately after Mass.
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.
Please join us on Sun. Feb. 17 at 9:30am Mass for the official installation of Fr. Antony as pastor. Bishop Jaime Soto will preside over the installation. Then join us for a breakfast reception in the Hall after Mass.
