PARISH LENTEN MISSION, March 5-8, 2017 at 7pm-8pm each night

Followed by refreshments & fellowship on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday

Wednesday, March 8th: Soup Dinner 5:30-7pm

 

You are invited to our Parish Mission on March 5th-8th.  A parish mission is an opportunity for us all to renew our Catholic faith. 

If you have abandoned the faith of your youth, the mission is for you. If you have been ‘on again, off again’ in the living of your Catholic religion, the mission is for you.  If you have wondered what is going on in the Church today, the mission is for you.  If you have been faithful in your witness of your Catholic faith, the mission is for you.  If you feel you need to know more about how to pray, the mission is for you.  If you judge yourself to be in need of spiritual growth, the mission is for you. If you are a sinner or a saint, or somewhere in between, the mission is for you. The mission is for everyone, but especially for you and your family.

Please join me in praying for the success of our parish mission and plan now to share with me this very special, grace-filled time.

Sincerely yours in Christ, 

Fr. Mark Juettner, Pastor
