Letters from Fr. Antony to St. Mary Parish Family
March 28, 2020 - letter
Lent is our annual opportunity to re-focus on the Lord and His call to be closer to Him. It's a time to ask ourselves, "Am I close to the Lord as I should be?" It's a call to repent of our sins, remove the obstacles that keep us from living in His love and turn our lives toward Him through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. So, we encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities that are available to grow closer to Him.
Please note that our Lenten Mission that was scheduled for Mar. 23-26 is cancelled.
We encourage you to use these days to draw closer to the Lord with extra prayer or meditating on the Scripture readings for the day.
Stroll in with your Fancy Umbrellas, Beads & Masques for our Mardi Gras Crab Feed on Sat. February 8. If you’ve never been to one of our crab feeds, this is your chance!
