  • The Gospel… for the second Sunday of Lent is always the story of the transfiguration of Jesus. The event reminds us of Jesus’ divinity, and the affirmation from God the Father that Jesus is his son. Through faith, we are also transfigured, we are transformed! But, faith is necessary for this to happen. It’s the faith that Abraham showed in the story from our first reading today. Abraham trusted God completely. May we do the same! 
  • We congratulate… our second graders who began their journey of reconciliation on Saturday, as they received this sacrament for the first time. May they always remain close to Jesus. 
  • Our young people… who are preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation in the fall will participate in a “Rite of Election” during the 11:00 Mass next Sunday, March 4. May they know the warmth of God’s Spirit! 
  • Our Parish Share Program (PSP)… is coming along nicely. Thanks so much to all who have already given or pledged. If you haven’t yet, please consider doing so. 
  • Plan to take advantage… of the opportunities we are offering for spiritual growth during this Lenten season. Check our parish Lenten calendar included again in this week’s bulletin.
