Food for Faith - Daily Lenten Reflections
The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life.” The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch. –CCC 1324
Reading this Catechism excerpt, we know the Eucharist and therefore, the Mass, is central to our Catholic faith. Would you like to delve into a deeper understanding of this Sacrament? Are you ready to take your faith journey to a level that will help you give and receive God’s gifts for you, but also will allow you to help family and friends do the same? Do you desire to pass on your love for this grace-filled sacrament, but want more information to help your kids understand? Here are some sources to help!
For Adults: Spring Bible Study: A Biblical Walk Through the Mass by Dr. Edward Sri
Source and Summit Retreat: For 7th-12th grades AND an adult retreat

Adopt a Priest
Dear Faithful Friends, We are coming to you to help show our Bishop, Priests, Deacons and Seminarians how loved they are by each of us. It is no secret that the Devil tries to do what he can to take down these Spiritual Warriors of ours. Recently at an early morning prayer group discussion it was brought to our attention how obvious it has become that our spiritual leaders need us to lift them up in our daily prayer. We have decided a great way to go about this would be to “adopt a priest”. Fr. Tyler Tenbarge has been having mass at Sacred Heart Campus on Mondays at 7:30pm for vocations. We thought this would be a great mass to gather together to pray for this intention. You are welcome to take on as many priests, deacons and seminarians as you wish!:) We will have a sheet with the priests name on it and blank spaces next to the name. Please be sure to write your name and email in those blank spots so we can create a group email of those choosing to take part! If you are unable to make this mass, just contact: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let us know if you want to be a part of “adopting a priest” and we can have one assigned to you!!
