Third Sunday of Lent

Mar 12, 2023

Please remember in your Lenten prayer our parish catechumens who are preparing to enter the Church at the Easter through the Initiation Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist: Lisa O’Connell and Tiya Cornejo.  Many thanks to the members of our RCIA team who have nurtured their faith in Christ and deepened their understanding of the church during this past year. 

       Thanks to all those who have made a gift or pledge to the Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries this year.  A portion of the funds we raise are designated for two of Katharine Drexel’s foundations: St. Michael’s Indian School (in Arizona) and the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament (in Philadelphia)—so please help us reach our parish goal again this year.  Pledge envelopes are available in the church narthex at the Welcome Center, or may be on your desk at home!

       Each year on Palm Sunday we celebrate a parish Seder Meal, which is a Jewish ritual meal recalling the Passover event.  Each household brings a dish to share, and it is a prayerful way to begin Holy Week.  Please use the form on our website (www.saintdrexel.org) or in this bulletin to register for this special evening.

       Our next parish trip is a cruise around the tip of South America next March, and Holland America is running a special deal through the end of this month.  More info is available elsewhere in the bulletin.

       Our 20th Annual Easter Egg Hunt will take place on the Saturday morning of Palm Sunday weekend.  The event is free, but you need to register (a form is in the bulletin and on our website) by 27 March so that we can provide enough eggs for the children to hunt!

       Our Katie’s Ladies group is once again collecting toiletry items as a way of supporting men and women who are starting a new life after being released from jail.  The list of requested items can be found on a bulletin insert this week, and they may be dropped off in the narthex during the last two weekends of March.
