Wednesday 18 Feb
No classes in lieu of Ash Wednesday Mass is at 6:00 pm.
This is a note sent home with our high school students
this week at Religious Education:
“Parents and Students, this is the High School Religious
Education Schedule for Spring 2015. Our meetings are
not many in number, so I hope the students will make the
effort to attend the classes we have. My schedule simply
does not allow for any more than these classes. We have
class every single Wednesday that I am available. If any
parents would like to volunteer to teach, I would
welcome the help. We will meet: March 11, 25, April
22, 29, May 6.”
This week in High School Religious Education we
discussed a number of topics including preparing for
Lent, why we do penance, forms of penance, prayer,
fasting and almsgiving. We also spoke about Mary and
her place among the Saints and in our salvation because
it was the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. And we
finished by talking about the mystery of the Mass.
Students are to bring any and all questions about the
Mass for our next meeting when we will be discussing
this source and summit of our Faith.
St. Francis Movie Night will be held again Tuesday at
7:15 in the Hall this week. We will continue our
enlightening series Catholicism. This month’s episode is
titled The Vast Company of Witnesses: the Communion
of Saints. This is sure to be another inspiring hour of
learning about the Faith. Remember that all past
episodes of this series are available to be checked out of
your parish library.

A leper approaches Jesus for healing in
the Gospel this weekend. He knows
Jesus can make him whole again, so he kneels
before him in trust and humility begging for this
gift. Jesus grants the healing, of course.
This story is told to us not just because it’s an
instance of the Lord’s power and grace but because
we are to put ourselves into the place of the leper.
We are to emulate his characteristics of humility,
trust, recognition that we are in need and that only
Jesus can heal us.
With Lent beginning this week, we Catholics
will begin the healthy process of thinking about our
faults and failings. We’re going to begin to devote
ourselves in a special way to penance, prayer, and
charity. We will also begin to think about how we
need to approach our Lord the way the leper did:
realize we are in need of healing, realize Jesus can
and will heal us, realize that he does so through the
way he set up for us: the Mass, the Eucharist and
The Lord who loves and cares for us is the same
on we see in the Gospel reaching out to the leper to
heal him. Our Lord is reaching out to us in some
very particular ways in the Church today. Let’s
make sure we avail ourselves of his grace this Lent
and all days.
- Fr. Broheimer

Super Bowl Brunch Report
Thank you to every person who helped with the Super
Bowl Brunch in any way. I am proud to say that this
year the parish really came together to make his
happen. As a committee, we did not have to make one
single phone call asking for food donations or to fill
the work schedule. Unbelievable! This makes
organizing an event like this enjoyable. Thank you to
those who commit to help us every year and thank
you to those new faces as well! Also, thank you to
everyone who ventured out on a very snowy day to
support the event. We had a great day considering the
weather conditions.
