Vandalism Repair Fund
Most of you will have heard by now that a number of windows on the east side of the building were smashed late at night on Monday, March 18, including the stained glass in St. Mary's Chapel.

We've set up a fund to provide for the repair and restoration of the church building from the recent vandalism. Your gift may be designated to assist with the damages in general, or specific to the stained glass windows or the other damages. Insurance will cover much of the costs, so your contribution will be used to cover the deductible. Gifts received beyond the deductible will be added to our Real Estate Endowment which generates income to support the maintenance and repair of the building.
From the Director of Youth Ministry, Erin Wolf
Former Youth Group student Michael Laswell has earned an Appointment to the United States Naval Academy. He will report for Plebe Summer on June 27 for six weeks and then start classes soon after. Congratulations, Michael!

Stephen Ministry:
Bringing Christ's healing love to hurting people
From Susan McCardell and Julie Holly, Stephen Leaders

Lenten Insight from Henri Nouwen's "Show Me the Way"

The love of God has become visible in Jesus. How is that love made visible through Jesus? It is made visible in the descending way. That is the great mystery of the Incarnation. God has descended to us human beings to become a human being with us; and once among us, descended to the total dereliction of one condemned to death. It isn't easy really to feel and understand from the inside this descending way of Jesus. Every fiber of our being rebels against it. We don't mind paying attention to poor people from time to time; but descending to a state of poverty and becoming poor with the poor, that we don't want to do. And yet that is the way Jesus chose as the way to know God --

God's way can be grasped only in prayer. The more you listen to God speaking within you, the sooner you will hear that voice inviting you to follow the way of Jesus. For Jesus' way is God's way and God's way is not for Jesus only but for everyone who is truly seeking God. Here we come up against the hard truth that the descending way of Jesus is also the way for us to find God. Jesus doesn't hesitate for a moment to make that clear.

The mystery of God's presence can be touched only by deep awareness of his absence. It is in the center of our longing for the absent God that we discover his footprints and realize that our desire to love God is born out of the love with which he has touched us. In the patient waiting for the loved one, we discover how much he has filled our lives already. Just as the love of a mother for her son can grow deeper when he is far away, just as children can learn to appreciate their parents more when they have left the home, just as lovers can rediscover each other during long periods of absence, so our intimate relationship with God can become deeper and more mature by the purifying experience of his absence.

By listening to our longings, we hear God as their creator. By touching the center of our solitude, we sense that we have been touched by loving hands. By watching carefully our endless desire to love, we come to the growing awareness that we can love only because we have been loved first and that we can offer intimacy only because we are born out of the inner intimacy of God himself.

Excerpt from Henri Nouwen's "Show Me the Way: Daily Lenten Readings" (1992)
