A Note from Fr. George

 

Lent – For You and For Me

                This Holy Season always invokes memories of my growing up.  Back then, every Friday was a day of abstinence and going to confession on Saturday was a natural part of receiving Holy Communion on Sunday… after having fasted since midnight.  During lent we would attend Stations of the Cross and we looked forward to the covering of all church statues in the weeks leading up to Holy Week.  And then, during Holy week, nearly everyone attended all the services, especially Good Friday when it was so still you could hear a pin drop.  That meant no television, no playing, and most especially no playing outside in the dirt as a reminder that Jesus had died and was buried.

                Today, dietary laws have changed, confessions have lessened, and attendance at church rituals has declined.  While many things have changed in our world over the past 50 years, Christ is still our Savior.  Our call to the disciplines and opportunities of Lent are just as important, and maybe even more so today.  We need Lent and Lent needs you.

                This year we are proud to be hosting two special events during Lent. 

  • The first is a presentation on The Shroud of Turin on Sunday March 8th at 7:00pm by David Onysk

  • The second is Living Stations of the Cross presented by Elyria Catholic High School on Sunday March 29th at 7:00pm.

 

In addition:

  • The Diocesan-wide celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be Wednesday, March 11th from 5-8pm.

  • The combined St. Julie/St. Peter Communal Penance Service is at St. Peter’s on Sunday March 15th at 7:00pm

 

                Take time this year to be part of it all… after all, for some of us it might be our last chance before we stand before the judgment seat of God.
