Day by Day Through Lent: Day Thirty-two


“Throwing stones” is a common phrase used to describe accusations, unfair or otherwise, that one person makes against another. The phrase comes, of course, from a well-known story from the Gospel of John, in which a woman “caught in the very act of adultery” is brought before Jesus for judgement. Jesus invites anyone in the angry, bloodthirsty crowd who is without sin to start the stone-throwing. It is a classic story of compassion and forgiveness. Watch a dramatization of it by clicking on the image of Jesus and the woman above.

Upcoming events:

On Palm Sunday, take "A Walk Through Holy Week", a hands-on, interactive prayer experience about the sights, sounds, and symbols of next week's observances. It will be held from 4:00 to 7:00 in the church. Come anytime during those hours and walk the Holy Week path at you own pace!

On Holy Thursday, our annual Family Potluck Supper before the Mass of the Lord's Supper. The doors of the Father Silva Center open at 5:00. Please call the Parish Office, 330-733-9944, to let us know you'll be coming!
