Season of Lent
We have begun the holy season of Lent. When I was a child, we looked upon Lent as something unpleasant to endure as we looked forward to Easter candy. Perhaps for many, Lent continues to have negative associations. I've come to see Lent as a gift. In Lent, we are invited to spend time with God. I think of it as hanging out with my friend Jesus. Traditional Lenten practices such as giving up favorite things, are meant to help us focus on our relationship with God. Please feel free to be creative about your Lenten practices. For some, the hardest thing to give up is time. Perhaps you can carve out a bit of time each day to spend with God. You might give up some time in order to visit someone who is ill or lonely. Try to see Lent as an opportunity to renew your relationship with God.
Grace and Peace

St. Patrick' Day
St. Patrick was a fifth century missionary and bishop who is regarded as the founder of Christianity in Ireland. To commemorate his influence we celebrate his feast day with song, dance and dinner. So plan now for our St. Patrick’s Day Party - Sunday, March 11, 3:30pm in the Lourdes Seton Auditorium. Best Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner around. There will be Irish Dancers and Fun for all ages!
We need a committee of 6 to 8 plus to help. Please sign up at Clipboards to help get this Cluster event off the ground.
