Preparing For Lent

It’s hard to believe that we are edging closer and closer to Lent. Lent runs from Ash Wednesday until the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday.

First of all, I would encourage you to register and attend our 2020 Lenten Mission “God Within.” Please check the bulletin for further information on this upcoming and most excellent mission. Peter Stur’s email is in the bulletin if you need more information. We are most fortunate to have this great mission here at St. Francis of Assisi! I’d like to see a great turnout for this! Register today!

Second, as we get ready to enter into Lent our Narthex (Gathering Space) will look at little different. During Lent most all of the pictures that have been on the walls will come down and only one new painting of Jesus Christ in the desert will be placed there. It will be our focus during Lent. Just so that there is no confusion, all of the pictures that are taken down will be carefully stored in a safe place. More about Lent along with a number of ways in which we can deepen our relationship with Christ – will be upcoming in the bulletins.

I pray that this particular Lent leads you and I to be very close to the sufferings of the Lord and will be purgative of anything that is keeping us from following Christ to the full.

In Christ,

Fr. Brad
