As we continue the holy season of Lent. The Scriptures call us to the traditional Lenten “works” – prayer, fasting and almsgiving. I invite you to consider attending daily Mass during Lent, or at least as often as possible. We offer an extra Mass
Monday – Thursday evening at 7 pm. Eucharistic Adoration is also an excellent way to spend some extra time in prayer. Along with Stations of the Cross every Friday evening at 7:00 pm, we also offer this devotion with our grade school on Friday afternoons. This is perfect for those who don’t like to drive at night. We will have extra opportunities for the Sacrament of Penance. Click here to see the whole schedule.
We are also offering a Parish Mission (see info below) this Lent. Jesuit Father Dave Meconi will be with us for three evenings, March 4, 5, 6 in the church at 7:00 pm. I remember Fr. Meconi from one of my retreats at the White House. He was excellent! More information is in this bulletin. Plan to join us!
The Fr. Scheid Players are presenting the comedy, The Man Who Came to Dinner, at Nerinx Hall High School on Friday, March 16, at 7:30 pm; Saturday, March 17, at 7:30 pm; Sunday, March 18, at 2:00 pm. I’m playing the part of “the man” – so…. pray I learn my lines. Parishioners Bob & Pam Bruce will also be on stage. Ticket information from Ann Madden, firstname.lastname@example.org or (314) 605-7520.
“Save the Date!” Msgr. Leach was ordained to the Holy Priesthood on March 22, 1958. We will celebrate this inspiring milestone, his 60th Anniversary, on Sunday, March 25th, at our 11:30 am Mass, followed by a Reception in the Parish Center. Hope you can join us!
God bless you!
