Fifth Sunday of Lent

Mar 21, 2021

        The Season of Lent is a good opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  An examination of conscience assists us in remembering the compassion God has for us, and the lack of compassion we may have, at times, for those around us.  Because of Covid-19 pandemic concerns, there are no Regional Reconciliation Services planned for this Lent.  However, we have scheduled two additional times for individual confession in church this week (listed in the bulletin) to facilitate the celebration of this sacrament.

       It has been a parish tradition on Palm Sunday weekend to have our annual Easter Egg Hunt and our annual Passover Seder Meal.  Because it is an outdoor activity with room for social-distancing, we are able to have the Easter Egg Hunt, but the Seder Meal has been cancelled.  Please register for the Easter Egg Hunt using the form on our parish website by this Monday. 

       The Unity Campaign in Frederick each year supports non-profit agencies who assist our most vulnerable neighbors.  One of those non-profits is our own St. Vincent de Paul Society, who can be chosen as a recipient of your donation.  Please consider this option when contributing to the Unity Campaign this month.  A bulletin insert this week provides a contribution form for your convenience.

       During our monthly telephone calls with Fr. Faubert, the pastor of our partner parish in Haiti, we are always reminded that the parishioners there pray for all of us.  We have included a “Prayer for Haiti” as a bulletin insert this week, so that we, too, can pray for the parishioners of Saint Hubert parish in Haiti.

       With more people being vaccinated, our Mass attendance is increasing.  While Governor Hogan recently raised the seating capacity for churches, the state guidelines still mandate social-distancing—a restriction which doesn’t really allow us to increase our permitted capacity.  The Archdiocese has stated that we will be receiving new guidelines shortly.

Fr. Keith
