Many thanks to our parish Adult Faith Formation Committee for coordinating our Lenten mini-retreat last weekend, and especially to Amy Kulesa who did such an excellent job in leading the retreat and planning the sessions. We had over 50 people virtually participating, many of whom have expressed their appreciation for the morning. If you would like more information about the practice of the “Daily Examen” our parish is encouraging this Lent, a bulletin insert offers resources that are available.
If your parish group or committee would like to use space in any of our buildings during the next fiscal year (starting in July), please submit your space requests by 26 March to Rachel Murtha in the Parish Office, as we will soon start working on our building-use calendar for next year in collaboration with Saint John Regional School. Next year we will probably be able to meet in person again, so it will be important to reserve your meeting space. The Facility Request Form can be found on our website at saintdrexel.org.
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.
The Easter flowers that grace our altar area for many weeks in the spring are always a welcome sight after the coldness of winter. Please use the designated envelope in your packet sometime this month to help us decorate in the joy of the upcoming resurrection season.
Our parish sponsors a co-ed adult softball team in the Frederick County Summer Church League each year, and the team can always use new members. Sign up using the information found elsewhere in the bulletin, as practices will be starting in April!
