MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
A LENTEN WALK WITH CHRIST:
OUR MISSION THROUGH LIFE TOWARDS SALVATION
MARCH 7 – 11, 2010 AT 7:00p.m.
It’s not too early, as a matter of fact, it is perfect time to mark your calendars and plan to participate in our parish mission. We all live busy, and sometimes hectic lives and if you don’t plan now for the Mission it will have come and gone and you will have missed an opportunity for extraordinary spiritual growth.
We are very excited about the format of this year’s mission. In many ways it will be very similar to missions that you have experienced in the past However, there is one new and rather significant change in this year’s format. In former years we have always invited a preacher (a Redemptorist, of course!) to come in to St. Al’s for the week. This year each of the Priests on the Parish staff will be responsible for the sermon on one of the four nights!
The topics that will be presented are:
Sunday, March 7 – Opening Service
Monday, March 8 – The Cross and Humanity
Tuesday, March 9 – Reconciliation: the Loving Forgiveness of Jesus
Wednesday, March 10 – The Eucharist
Thursday, March 11 – Healing Mass with Anointing of the Sick
Monday, March 15 – Parish Penance Service
The successful outcome of any mission requires the help of a lot of generous people working behind the scenes. We need volunteers to serve as: Greeters (at the doors of the church during the mission), Child care, Bakers (cookies etc. for the fellowship after the evening services in church), Phone callers, (inviting & reminding people of the mission), Drivers (for seniors or anyone who need help getting to and from the church, and lastly, Clean-up (for after the evening fellowship in church). Contact Marilyn Rupinski at 949-8926 if you can help.
BETWEEN NOW AND MARCH 7 PLEASE PRAY FOR THE SUCCESS OF THE MISSION. MAY IT BE A VERY GRACED MOMENT IN THE LIFE OF OUR PARISH!
