We are very excited that Father Roy Lee will be joining us in February for a parish mission aimed at preparing us for the Lenten Season!
Monday – Wednesday, February 25 – 27 beginning at 7pm each day. Wednesday ends with Reconciliation.
We have been blessed over the past few years to have Father Lee celebrate Mass for us and look forward to having him back!
Almighty and loving Father, we humbly pray that you will bless
our mission with the powerful assistance of your Spirit. Grant that our parish may respond to this time of grace and mercy through this pre-Lenten Mission. Help us put aside all things that crowd our lives so that we can schedule these three days to come together as a praying and fasting Catholic community. We ask for the grace to learn to live the simplicity that Jesus taught in our complex world. Bless our mission priest, Fr. Roy Lee, preacher and teacher. Prepare his heart with the message you have for us. Fill him with your Spirit to help us to be transfigured in Christ. May Mary, Our Mother, our model and guide, obtain from her divine Son, all that we need to make this time of
spiritual renewal. This we ask of you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who lives and reigns forever and ever…Amen!
