Please pray for the confirmation III students who will be on retreat next weekend. Jayne, Anton and several folks will make up the retreat team and have worked hard to put the retreat experience together; they have done a great job. We’ll be traveling up to the Sacramento Mountain Methodist Assembly camp ground on Friday evening and returning on Sunday, after mass. This “mountain top” Experience is usually a turning point in the lives of your young children; please pray that they open their heart to receive the good news of the Holy Spirit.
Thanks to all of you who supported last weekend’s appeal for Food for the Poor. We’re continuing our parish Lenten Almsgiving project and ask for your prayers and support. We’d really like to reach our goal and with your help we will.
In a recent article Pope Francis spoke about the transformative power that confession can be for us. I realize that we’ve already hosted our parish penance service but there are several scheduled for next week, one at Holy Cross and other at Immaculate Heart. Please consider making confession a priority in the next several weeks, before Easter!
