Day by Day Through Lent: Day Thirty-one


"Lazarus!

Come out!"

"Lazarus Week" continues as we move closer to the end of our Lenten Journey. Today is the day of the vernal equinox - the first day of spring! Although the weather may not be cooperating, we have hope that the chill of winter will be gone soon. The raising of Lazarus was a sign of what was to come, for Jesus and for us! For this first day of spring, a simple reflection in the form of a poem by Christian poet Christina Rosetti. Click on the poem's title below!

"A Better Resurrection"

Today is a parish Day of Prayer. The church will remain open throughout the day, with the Blessed Sacrament exposed on the altar. Take some time for a few minutes of private prayer! Benediction will be at 6:00 PM!

Remember that next Thursday we will have our Family Pot Luck Supper before the Holy Thursday Mass. Dooors open in the Father Silva Center at 5:00; please bring a dish to share with 8 to 10 folks! Call the Parish Office to let us know you're coming!
