Lent 2018 Pastoral Letter
Brothers and Sisters:
Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the holy season of Lent 2018. Our Eucharist will be celebrated tonight at 7 PM with the imposition of ashes during Mass.
During Lent this year our focus as individuals and as a parish community is to do our best in following the disciplines of this holy season: prayer, fasting and alms giving.
- Prayer – select a special person in your life each week and say a little prayer each day for that individual.
- Fasting – select a meal one day of the week where you will eat a little less, great for weight loss and healthy for the body as well.
- Almsgiving – save your spare change in the All Souls plastic container which will assist us in our outreach programs.
Together as a parish community let us not only support one another with the commitment to regular attendance is Sunday but also in our journey together through Lenten sacrifices to Easter joy.
