Joy of the Family
March 2023
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is the first week of Lent, for many of us it seems like we just took down our Christmas decorations. The month of March is dedicated to St. Joseph. Find more about honoring St. Joseph here. Lent is a great time to pray the Stations of the Cross with your family, friends, or even on your own. The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's journey to the Cross. Click here to learn more and watch this beautiful journey through the 14 Stations.

This month's e-newsletter has ideas for gathering with your family and other families. Now is a great time to form or join a small group of like-minded friends to walk with you through the journey of life. Invite others to pray together, eat together, grow together, and support each other in life's daily struggles.

Please let us know how we can better serve you and your parish as we carry out our mission of evangelization to help parishes bring people to an encounter with Christ and a deeper appreciation of the Catholic faith, igniting a joyful witness of their faith to others. (Contact us at [email protected])

May God's Mercy and Peace be with you and your family,

Cathy, Deacon Louie, Beth, Liliana, Andy, Cindy and Rosario

Please share this email with anyone and everyone!
Together let us build, unite and grow our Church.
