• “Have patience with all things, but first of all with yourself.” St. Francis de Sales
• Lent has begun. During Lent, we are asked to devote ourselves to seeking the Lord in prayer and reading Scripture, to service by giving alms, and to practice self-control through fasting.
• This weekend is Follow-Up Weekend for the Bishop’s Annual Stewardship Appeal. Last week, we shared a video message from Bishop Estévez, inviting us all to join as One Faith, One Family, in support of the 2021 Appeal. If you were unable to attend Mass at our parish last week, the video is available for viewing on the diocesan website – www.dosafl.com. – If you have not yet made a pledge to the Appeal, you will have the opportunity to do so after today’s homily. Thank you for your participation, it truly makes a significant difference in the lives of so many in need within our diocese.
• Please join us on Fridays during Lent for Souper Supper in the Family Life Center at 5:00 pm followed by Stations of the Cross in the church starting at 7:00 pm. Proceeds benefit social outreach ministries. Thank you.
• Thank you to all those who supported the youth department at our Annual Ash Wednesday Fish Fry, we could not have done it without your support! Thank you.
• Save the Date for our Urban Plunge Annual Yard Sale on Saturday March 6th, we will begin taking donations Monday March 1st.
