Second Sunday of Lent

Feb 25, 2024

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: Amanda Parker and Jacob Wagemann.  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!

       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 over the next two weekends.  Our Katie’s Ladies group has been active in our parish for many years, adding to the wide variety of parish activities that occur each year.  They are hoping to welcome some new members, so if you aren’t involved in any other parish ministry currently, please feel free to contact the president Irma Woerner for information at 301-514-6562 or

       On Saturday 16 March in McElroy Hall, someone will be calling out “BINGO” whenever they have won a cash prize at our Knights of Columbus Bingo Night.  You can get tickets after Mass in the narthex or call the parish office if you plan to attend.

       Make sure you refer to the purple bulletin insert each week for Lenten activities so that you grow in Christ by observing Lent in some focused way…
