If you haven't signed up to help with the fish fry this coming Friday, please do so. If you've already signed up, consider inviting a friend, neighbor or family member to join you to help out. That personal invitation goes a long way to feeling important and that ones gifts are needed. It is always great to see people working together during the fish fry, but even better to see them genuinely enjoying themselves with one another. If you aren't able to work that evening, you can still help by bringing in a dessert, or invite a friend, neighbor or family member to join you for the meal. I've had many people comment on how good the meal is & I agree. Let's share it with even more people this second go round.
This season of Lent is a time of turning back to the Lord. There is no better way to do this than through the sacrament of reconciliation. We have the first of two opportunities to join in a cluster reconciliation opportunity this Sunday, March 19 at 1 pm at Good Shepherd. Our second opportunity is at St. John the Evangelist, Daylight on March 26 at 1 pm. There will be at least four priests at each and you don't have to be there right at 1 pm to take part in the individual opportunity to receive God's mercy, forgiveness and grace to do better. There will be pamphlets available to help you through the process, but check out our page on the parish website that has all of the Lenten opportunities for reconciliation as well as a page with the steps in the process.
Next weekend begins spring break for our local schools. If you are traveling with family, please travel safely and don't take a spring break from your faith. It is still lent and we continue our Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving even when we are away from home. We also don't take a spring break from our obligation to attend Mass. It's easy enough now-a-days to check on Google maps to see where the nearest Catholic church is located and also what times they have Mass. Take the opportunity to experience a new community, a new church building and maybe some differences of music and the Mass. Noticing these differences and also the similarities can help us to better appreciate what we have at our own parish family's celebration, and maybe even provide a new idea or two about how we can worship better here.
Continue to keep us in prayer as we search for who it is that God has planned to be our new principal here at Holy Redeemer. We opened the application process back up this last month as we had such a small pool of applicants our first time period. We had good candidates during that initial opening, but wanted to have a larger pool for a better process. Pray that God will help us to discern which person he has planned for our new principal that we might recognize them through this search. I will announce who God reveals that to be after our process is complete. Also, in these final months as our principal, let us continue to show our love and appreciate to Mrs. Webster for all of her many years of ministry and love.
