A Note from Fr. Molini

Lent takes a turn

With the Third Sunday of Lent, there is a slight turn for the Catholic community as we begin to focus more on those preparing to enter the Church at Easter.  At the Mass with our candidates present, we will, over the next three Sundays, invite them to make a public statement of their desire to join the Church.  Using special readings at this Mass (10 am), we will reflect with them on the call to conversion of heart.  Supporting them in their desire, it also calls upon the larger community to pray for them.  Let us, therefore, pray for all those entering the Catholic Church this Easter Season as a sign of our unity and our own conviction of faith.

Feasibility Study…your input is needed

As mentioned elsewhere in the bulletin, we are at the stage of asking for everyone’s input on our intentions to renovate the Gabriel House and consider a Gathering Space near the front of the church.  The scope of the project is dependent on the support we can anticipate from our members.  Please help us plan effectively by sharing your thoughts and level of support for our projects.
