Fifth Sunday of Lent

Mar 26, 2023

It has become a parish tradition on Palm Sunday weekend to have our annual Easter Egg Hunt and our annual Passover Seder Meal.  Please remember that you are asked to register for these activities by Monday morning (at the latest!) and that the forms are available on our parish website.

       It is possible to go to confession each Saturday from 3:30-4:30 PM in church, but please be aware that there are two extra opportunities in our area this week to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation in preparation for the feast of Easter. All the priests from regional parishes will be available on Tuesday from 6:30-8:00 PM at Holy Family Church in Middletown, and on Thursday from 3:00-5:00 PM at Saint John the Evangelist Church in downtown Frederick.

       The Frederick School of Religion has been in operation for thirty-nine years, offering an adult opportunity to continue learning about religion in an ecumenical atmosphere.  We are blessed to have such a service available in this area, held this year at nearby Trinity United Methodist Church (on W. Patrick Street @ US Route 15). More information is included in this bulletin and on our parish website.

       A team from the Archdiocese of Baltimore is making a routine visit to our parish this week and will meet with staff, finance committee, pastoral council, etc. to learn more about our parish life and offer helpful observations.  We welcome them to Frederick!

       Many parishioners have expressed their gratitude for our Lenten focus “Can you hear me now?” and the opportunity for silent prayer at the beginning of Mass during Lent.  If you find this kind of prayer enriching for your spiritual life, you might consider joining our Centering Prayer group that meets each Sunday via Zoom.  Contact info is available in the bulletin.

       Please be aware that, weather permitting, we will begin Mass next weekend with the Blessing of Palm and Procession on the front plaza of the church.
