My Dear Parishioners:
The Lenten/Easter season is about to begin here at St. Catherine’s. This liturgical time of the year prepares us for the greatest feast of the Church- The Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015.
February 18, 2015 is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. The Lenten season is a blueprint for us to take a look into ourselves more deeply and to recognize our faults and weaknesses. Let us take this time to study our blueprint and take a closer look at our spiritual track record in this regard.
Plan to participate in the Fish Fry’s, daily Mass and to pray the Living Stations with our LifeTeen Ministry. Try to attend our Lenten Parish Mission given by our own Fr. Junot, which will be a musical retreat, based on the Psalms. And, of course, do plan to attend our Lenten Penance Service. Remember to attend the Holy Triduum: Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday.
I pray that you and your family will make time to involve yourselves in the many activities presented by the parish this Lenten Season.
Let us prepare ourselves for the greatest feast of the Church: the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sincerely Yours in Christ-
Fr. John M. Matejek
