Happy March! We start Lent this Wednesday, March 2nd. We hope that you have a reflective and prayerful Lent. Lenten reflection books will be available on the information counter on Ash Wednesday. We’ll also have our own weekly Lenten reflections each week. Read more about them in our e-newsletter.

Also, we hope you will join us for our Parish Mission Retreat, “Figs Find Forgiveness,” March 14th – 16th. We will dive deeper into the messages behind the scriptures that we will hear on the third, fourth, and fifth Sundays of Lent. Can’t make it one night? You are still welcome to attend the other evenings. Bring your friends and family!

In our e-newsletter you will find links and information to some of our upcoming events and announcements, like Fish Fry!
