Of Many Things . . . Seven Planets

Remember in my homily this past weekend I talked about the seven new planets discovered by astronomers? I assigned seven marks of Lent to match them and discover God’s grace anew. Here they are, to place on the refrigerator:
1. Prayer
2. Fasting
3. Almsgiving
4. Conserve [You cannot serve both God and mammon]; do not be possessed by your possessions
5. Find Jesus each day [really look]
6. Study [Bible or spiritual Catholic reading] – join the Bible study beginning March 8th!
7. BestLentEver.com [sign up – trust God, He will never let you down]

Congratulations, Barbara

I am pleased to announce that Mrs. Barbara Pickett is the 2017 Archdiocesan Medal of Appreciation recipient. Each year, a dedicated parishioner from each parish is honored by Archbishop Blair for good works and dedicated service to build up the Gospel. This year, the parish staff unanimously recommended Barbara. She is always ready to help, no matter what the project. Thank you, Barbara! When you see her, congratulate her in person.

The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 19, 2017 at the Cathedral of St. Joseph at 3:00 p.m. All are welcome.
