Day by Day Through Lent: Day Thirty-three


"Lazarus!

Come out!"

The season of Lent will come to a close one week from today, on Holy Thursday. Our prayer, our fasting, and our acts of charity have brought about some changes in us, we hope. That was the point, after all! Lent is a time to make changes, or more specifically, to ask the Lord to change whatever it is in us that needs changing! The Prayer of Saint Francis captures this idea: We can bring change into our world (hatred to love, sadness to joy, doubt to faith, etc.) by allowing God to change our hearts, our minds, and our spirits. Pray with Saint Francis today by reflecting on his well-known prayer, as sung by John Michael Talbot. Click the image of Saint Francis:

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 at 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!
