It is time to get ready for Holy Week and Easter. Where did the weeks of Lent go? Ash Wednesday doesn't seem that long ago! I hope you have been keeping up with Rediscover Christ and using the daily meditations to enrich your Lenten journey. Next Sunday is Palm Sunday. Our practice is to begin in the gathering area to hear the gospel story of the Palm Sunday procession, to bless the palms and then as a community to make our way into church.
Another journey that some are making is called 40 Days for Life. You've seen the signs near the church entrances. Our parish will be participating in an hour-long prayer vigil at Northland Family Planning this coming Wednesday, March 16th, from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Please consider joining us. The church will be kept open for those who wish to participate by prayer as well. You can find more information on 40 Days for Life activities at https://40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/southfield/
I will be including in next week's bulletin a date and time for a parish-wide listening session which is intended to help the Archdiocese prepare for the November Synod. I urge you to come and be part of this session.
