If you missed the lecture on the Prayer Labyrinth, watch the YouTube video (below) of the lecture thanks to George Gates, parishioner and owner of Commercial Sound and Image.
Saturday July 29th is the Fifth Anniversary of our re-opening and we will bless and dedicate our new St. Wendelin statue in the Prayer Garden after mass, followed by a reception. Expect your invitation in the next week’s mail. If you do not receive one, please call the rectory!
Save postage and drop your reply card in the basket during mass.
Meet Fr. Marek Visnovsky, as he speaks about icons which are well known to the Christians of the Eastern Rites. These sacred images can lead you to the appreciation of the church as an icon of Christ, and of yourself as an icon as well. Perfect for Lent, spend time with us at 12 noon or at 7pm on Tuesday, March 21st. Call St. Wendelin Parish at 216.696.1926 for more information.
See the flyer for more information.
“In an acceptable time I heard you,
and on the day of salvation I helped you.
Behold, now is a very acceptable time;
behold, now is the day of salvation.”
(2 Corinthians 6,2)
Lent is an opportunity to be deeply aware of the working of God’s grace in our lives. Surely, an attitude of penitence can make us more aware of our need for God and our dependence upon God. But the words above, from the Ash Wednesday scriptures, point to this time as graced rather than a time of penitence.
Someone once suggested that what we “give up” during Lent is really something we want to “give up” for life. So perhaps this year we can focus on habits we would truly like to grow in our life, things such as generosity, forgiveness, mercy and understanding.
Please see the Lenten Calendar for the many opportunities for you to participate in this Lenten celebration.
