Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

The Third Sunday of Lent is upon us, and we have now been in Lenten mode for two and a half weeks. The question each of us needs to ask is how we are doing? Are we spending more time in prayer? Are we attending Mass each week, if not more often? Have we participated in the various devotions like Stations of the Cross or the Lenten Retreat? Have we made it to Confession yet? Our Gospel and our Second Reading continue to give very stark warnings of what happens to those who refuse to repent of their sins and to change their lives. We have another four weeks of Lent on the calendar so in theory it is not too late to continue our conversion. But none of us are guaranteed that we will make it to Easter Sunday, are we? So are we prepared to meet God if He calls us from this world today? Food for thought…. 
 The Diocese on Ash Wednesday began a Year of Reparation and Healing for our Church. You will find in this bulletin a prayer that was composed for this year. I ask you to please cut it out and pray it each day until Ash Wednesday 2020. You will also notice a crucifix with a purple candle burning and the prayer on a poster in our church. It will remain there until Ash Wednesday 2020 as a reminder of our need to pray for the victims and for renewal in our Diocese and the Church worldwide. 
Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!! 
 

Rev. Steven Jekielek, Pastor
