First Sunday of Lent
Did You Know?
Fr. Matt is a priest who enjoys many things, and one of his favorites is theme parks! Access his blog from our website HERE.
Fr. Dave's Talk #2 is Tonight at 7:00 p.m.!
If you miss it on Facebook, catch it HERE afterward.

Let’s prepare for Jesus and experience true transformation in our lives this Lent through seven video presentations from Fr. Dave and the Ascension Lenten Companion. This resource has daily meditations, space for journaling, original sacred artwork, plus access to more weekly videos to keep us on track. The Lenten Companion is available for $5 in the parish office and we still have copies available. While the book is a great supplement to Fr. Dave's talks, it is not imperative that you own a copy to fully grasp his presentations.

FORMED for the Week of February 21
FORMED highlights three features each week. You can watch, learn from, and grow in your Catholic faith. This week's picks are The Wild Goose, The Next Pope, and Love, Sacrifice, Trust.
The Hills Are (Coming) Alive!
Since Wednesday, the congregation is now able to sing the Mass parts and the Responsorial Psalm refrain. Cantors will continue to proclaim the psalm from the cantor stand. The music at entrance, offertory, and communion will continue to be sung by the cantor alone.
The reason for this change is that the parts are short, they don't encourage a lot of breath usage, and our congregation has been superb in keeping social distance with nearly 100% mask compliance!
Welcome back, singers!
