The ChristLife program will take a breather while we enter into Holy Week and Easter. Participants from Discovering Christ will begin the section Following Christ on April 14th. The ChristLife team is thankful that our parish has been blessed by the all those who responded to this opportunity to deepen faith. Next year, we will offer the entirety of the program again, beginning in February.
On the Sunday after Easter, Fr. Jeremy will be begin a monthly Sunday morning session for people who want to know more about the Catholic faith and who may be interested in joining our RCIA process which will begin next fall. This session will take place after the 10:00am mass (11:15am) and is planned to last an hour. If you know anyone who has expressed interest in becoming Catholic, please tell them about the program, and tell Fr. Jeremy about their interest. The first session is scheduled for April 12th.
As you walked in procession today to honor Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, may you walk with Jesus each day of the Holy Week. I encourage you to take part in our parish liturgies on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and of course, on Easter Sunday. Check our Facebook page for a video invitation to these liturgies!
From Pope Francis: The Lord’s missionary mandate includes a call to growth in faith: “Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Mt 28:20). Hence it is clear that that the first proclamation also calls for ongoing formation and maturation. Evangelization aims at a process of growth which entails taking seriously each person and God’s plan for his or her life. All of us need to grow in Christ. Evangelization should stimulate a desire for this growth, so that each of us can say wholeheartedly: “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Gal 2:20).
