A Shot in the Arm

Dear Parishioners,

We had an excellent mission given by the president of Archbishop Curley, Fr. Joe Benicewicz. A good number of you attended. For those of you unable to attend, there are several excellent opportunities this Lent.

First, on Saturday, March 16 from 8:30am – 4pm, the Archdiocesan Men’s Fellowship will be held at Calvert Hall High in Towson. See the ad in the bulletin for further details. Second, St. John’s in Severna Park will have a mission on March 10, 11, 12 at 7:15pm by a Catholic convert and former Protestant minister, Michael J. Cumbie.

Of course, we still have Stations of the Cross each Friday at 10am and 7pm, as well as daily Mass at 8:30am. However, these other opportunities listed above might give you the shot in the arm you need. Even the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI goes on a retreat each year. (He just got back last week). If the pope does something extra special each Lent, shouldn’t we?
