Ministry Moments: Passion Play This past week the parish buried one of our former pastors, Msgr. Anthony Kovacic. “Father Tony” served the parish over a long span of time and after he retired, he continued to live in the parish and assist us according to his abilities. During his pastorate, he responded to early growth in the parish and is responsible for the building of the Family Life Center as well as the parish Education Building (In fact, the “MAK” in “MAK Center” stands for Msgr. Anthony Kovacic). I lived with Father Tony some years ago when I was involved in high school ministry. The traits of warmness, humor and his dogged evangelization of peoples which folks here in Belmont remember were the same traits he lived then. He was a man of prayer and I always found him gracious and supportive of me and my ministry. I am sure that some in the parish have endearing stories to tell of Father Tony. I hope, in his honor and in his memory, you will share them with your family and friends and also utter a small prayer to assist Father Tony on his way through death to the promise and hope of eternal life. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen. Lent begins on Wednesday. We hope you will join us to enter into this season of preparation for Easter and will find these forty days as a time of personal renewal. Reference the mailing for our Lenten schedule and for the Lenten regulations. Be blessed this week! Father Frank Each Passion Sunday, a dedicated group of volunteers brings the Gospel story to life for the parish with its dramatic presentation of Jesus’ Passion and Death. Young and old alike are mesmerized by the story as parish members take on the roles and involve the crowd in following Jesus on His way to the cross. New volunteers are always welcome. Cast members meet on Saturday mornings throughout Lent to rehearse and then present the Passion Play at all weekend masses. Consider adding your talents to the production!

Que dará usted durante la Cuaresma para cambiar la vida de millones? Reflexión Queridos hermanos: Si quieres puedes sanarme. El Evangelio de hoy se refiere a un breve diálogo de fe entre Cristo y un enfermo de lepra, que concluye con la curación de éste por Jesús. El enfermo es reintegrado así a la comunidad de los hermanos, de la que su enfermedad le apartaba según la prescripción de Levítico. El leproso del evangelio suplica de rodillas a Jesús con una frase por lo que viene a confesarlo como Dios y Señor: Si quieres puedes limpiarme. Jesús lo tocó diciendo: quiero, queda limpio. Y se operó el milagro como efecto de la fe, que en este caso se muestra en resumen como un diálogo de madurez y liberación. Para ver las maravillas de Dios se necesita una fe madura y está fe madura se va consolidando en el constante diálogo con Jesús, junto con una disponibilidad para escucharlo, pero a la vez con una respuesta en el cambio de vida junto con su testimonio de vida. La fa Madura integra al Cristiano a la comunidad, se hace partícipe de todas las bendiciones como también de todas las pruebas de la vida, contestando siempre como María Santísima: He aquí la esclava del Seños, hágase en mí según su Palabra. La limpieza del alma integra a la persona a ser parte de la gran familia de los hijos de Dios, que es la Iglesia. Vivamos este mensaje con mucho amor. Que Dios los bendiga. P. José Antonio Juya Sesión de Preparación para La Primera Comunión El miércoles 11 de marzo de 5:00-8:00 en el MAK Familia Center será la primera reunión para padres y niños que se encuentren en el programa de preparación para el Sacramento de La Primera Comunión.
