Fourth Sunday of Lent

Mar 27, 2022

The Season of Lent is a good time 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.  There are no Regional Reconciliation Services planned for this Lent.  However, all the priests in the Frederick area will be available in our church this Tuesday afternoon and evening for individual confession.  Don’t miss this opportunity for confession (times are listed in bulletin)!

       As was announced last weekend, our Katie’s Ladies group is coordinating a project to assist those who have recently completed their time and been released from jail as they return to life in our community.  Toiletry items and monetary donations will be collected until next weekend in the church narthex and the parish office, and the list of requested items is on a bulletin insert and our parish website. 

       An order form is included in the bulletin this weekend for gift cards you might want to give this spring for Easter, Mother’s/Father’s Day, birthdays, or graduations.  Think ahead and make your gift-giving easier while helping your parish.

       Our Volunteer Appreciation Party is planned for Saturday 23 April, and I hope you will sign up over the next few weekends after Mass.  It is inspiring to realize how many people are involved in so many different ministries in our faith community, and this annual event expresses gratitude for that dedication, especially as seen in our Kate Award recipients.  We haven’t been able to hold this annual post-Easter event for the last two years because of the pandemic, so plan to attend this year so you don’t miss the fun!

       Our parish sponsors Cub Scout Pack 48, and they held their Pinewood Derby last month.  As you can see from the pictures on the bulletin insert, the event was lots of fun and created lots of smiles.  Many thanks to our scout leaders for their work with our young people.
