A Message From Kelly Wolf
LOVE is …
LOVE is in the air this Valentine’s weekend.
LOVE is more than just words.
It’s action ! And nothing is more powerful than
1Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient, love is kind. It is not
jealous, (love) is not pompous,
it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does
not seek its own interests, it is
not quick-tempered, it does not brood
over injury, it does not rejoice
over wrongdoing but rejoices with the
truth. It bears all things, believes
all things, hopes all things, endures
all things. Love never fails.
The LOVE we share between spouses, between parent
and child are lifelong commitments bigger than any
Valentine’s flowers or chocolates, and sanctified by God.
When we truly love someone we are willing to give of
ourselves for that person’s benefit. LOVE happens in
service of others.
So go and celebrate LOVE: the LOVE of God, LOVE
of each other, LOVE in the community and LOVE of
the Church.

First Sunday of Lent
MARK 1:12-15
The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert, and he
remained in the desert for forty days, tempted by
Satan. He was among wild beasts, and the angels
ministered to him.
After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee
proclaiming the gospel of God: “This is the time of
fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent,
and believe in the gospel.”
REFLECTION QUESTION
What “wild beasts” do I find myself among in these
opening days of Lent? Who are some “ministering
angels” who bless my life?

Journeying in Lent . . .
Our journey of Lent can be likened to our whole parish being on retreat.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. A cross is made on our forehead and we commit
ourselves to turning from sin and being faithful to the Gospel. Ashes will be distributed as part of our services at 7:00,
8:00, and 9:00 AM and at 12:15, 5:00 and 8:00 PM. EACH SERVICE WILL HAVE 3 PARTS: LITURGY OF THE WORD,
BLESSING AND DISTRIBUTION OF ASHES, AND LITURGY OF THE EUCHARIST.
SAINT MICHAEL CHURCH:
6:00 PM (ENGLISH) AND 7:00 PM (SLOVAK)
AND 8:30 PM (KOREAN).
Please encourage your friends, neighbors, and family to join in one of these services.
Fasting to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by everyone 18 years of age and older who have not
yet reached their 59th birthday.
On a fast day, one full meal is allowed. Two other meals, enough to maintain strength, may be taken according to
each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal.
Eating between meals is not permitted, but consuming liquids, including milk and juices, is allowed.
Abstinence is observed by everyone 14 years of age and older. On days of abstinence no meat is
allowed. Ash Wednesday, all the Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday are days of abstinence.
If a person is unable to observe the above regulations because of health or other serious reasons, other suitable forms
of self-denial are encouraged
STATIONS OFTHE CROSS
One of our traditional Lenten practices is the praying
the footsteps of Jesus to Calvary.
of the Stations of the Cross. It is our way of walking in
At 3:00 and 7:30 PM each Friday, during Lent, we will gather in the church to pray and reflect together on Jesus’
Passion. We are in need of people who would be willing to lead the Stations of the Cross at 3 pm and at 7:30.
If you can assist us, please call Sister Beth 882-6491.
Saint Ann School will pray the Stations of the Cross Thursdays at 1:30 PM
Lent
makes little sense unless it is seen and celebrated with a vision of Easter. Lent is a final preparation of our
catechumen and candidates for the Sacraments of Initiation and for all Christians to prepare for renewing our baptismal
commitment. During Lent we are called to strengthen our purpose and clarify our vision – to live in a new way, leading
to a right relationship with God, the earth, and all people. Our traditional practices of almsgiving, prayer, and fasting are
the ways that can help us prepare for the new life promised by the Risen Jesus on Easter Sunday.
● Almsgiving helps us to become more detached from things in order to focus our attention on
God and makes us more aware of the poverty of others.
● Fasting helps us to realize our dependence, it helps us become aware of the needs of others, it
empties us so that we can be filled with God’s gifts.
● Prayer is aimed at restoring and deepening our communion with God.
These three components of Lent are a gift that we give to God so that we can enter more deeply into the mystery of
our redemption.

Journeying in Lent . . . continued
RCIA Information
As a parish family, we will be praying, fasting, and giving alms, which prepares us to renew our Baptismal commitment.
In fact, some of the younger members of the parish will be preparing for the reception of their First
Communion and others will be preparing for Confirmation, both Sacraments of Initiation.
Chris Mauro, Erika Berger, and Jason Bannon join us as they begin their final preparation for their
reception of the Easter Sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.
At our Easter Vigil, April 4, Chris will be baptized for the first time, and Erika and Jason will be
received into the Catholic Church. All of them will receive the sacraments of Confirmation and
Eucharist.
Next Sunday at the 9:30 mass, we will celebrate the Rite of Sending and the Calling of the Candidates for
Continuing Conversion. In this Rite this parish community will be sending Chris Mauro to Saint Mary’s Cathedral
for the Rite of Election. During this Rite, Bishop David O’Connell will call Chris to receive the Easter sacraments. For
Erika and Jason, this Rite calls them to seriously prepare for their reception into the Catholic Church and receiving the
Sacraments of Initiation.
Erika Berger is a resident of Lawrenceville. She is engaged to Matthew Knob and plans to marry on May 2, 2015. She
works for Colgate-Palmolive as a Trade Development Coordinator. She was baptized in the Lutheran Church.
