The Way of the Cross   will be held at Holy Family each Friday in Lent at 5:15 pm. All are invited to take part in this beautiful prayer of the church.

The three pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Some suggestions for this week are

  • Fast from negativity  > fast from comparing ourselves with others > fast from eating between meals
  • Attend Holy Mass through the week, maybe daily  > Read a chapter of the Bible each day, especially the four gospels > Recite Chaplet of Divine Mercy  www.thedivinemercy.org/message/devotions/praythechaplet.php
  • Be less critical of our family members  > call a family member we don’t usually call > tell someone about Jesus


MEET & GREET SOCIAL  at Holy Family in the Parish House after the 9:30 and 11:00 am masses this Sunday, February 25th. All are welcome!

It’s Fun Fair Planning Time Again!  Interested parishioners and friends are invited to a Fun Fair planning meeting in St. Francis of Assisi School on Wednesday March 7th at 10 am (meet in the school lobby).

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament  – 1pm to 5pm, Thursday, March 1st In addition to our personal intentions, may we also pray that the Church may appreciate the urgency of formation in spiritual discernment, both on the personal and communitarian levels (Holy Father’s intention for March)
