OLP Church Restoration and Repairs
Some may have noticed some touched up areas in OLP Church. Using money donated to the Memorial Fund, we are able to restore and re-paint areas damaged by leaks and moisture. As of this writing, the work is not yet fully completed but will be shortly. Thanks for your support of the Memorial Fund.
Lent is quickly approaching
Hard to believe that the Holy Season of Lent will begin this Wednesday, February 26th. Our Ash Wednesday schedule is listed in this bulletin. As we approach this annual time of repentance let us think of those areas of our lives where we need to change in order to renew our baptismal commitment to the Lord and to hear once again his daily call to conversion.
This Sunday’s Gospel certainly offers much food for thought on what our daily conversion must look like. Notice in the passage, the call to generosity of spirit along with the call to serve. Jesus also instructs us to pray for and love even those we do not like, find difficult – including those who mistreat us.
Also mentioned there are kindness, courtesy, gentleness, meekness. All of these virtues are hallmarks of how Christians are to act, of how Christians are to be in the world. May we all take the time during Lent to examine our lives to see where we need to change, repent, and be better, so that we can renew our commitment and dedication to the Lord and to living a life of holiness.
