A Parish Lenten Mission with Fr. Bill Faiella, CSC.

March 12 – 14, 2018

Make time this Lent to enrich your faith by planning to attend the Parish Mission

This year, Fr. Bill will use questions from our parishioners to create his Mission talks each day on faith, spirituality and prayer. All are invited to submit your questions in the box located in the parish lobby from now until February 14.

Mission talks will be held twice each day: 9:00am or 6:30pm. Choose whichever time works best with your schedule. Reconciliation will be at 10:00am on Monday, March 12 and at 7:30pm on Tuesday, March 13.

This inspiring 3-day Parish Mission will help strengthen your relationship with God and better prepare your heart to walk through Lent into Holy Week with Christ.

At the 2016 Parish Mission, Fr Bob Rossi, OSC, a Crosier Father from Phoenix, guided us in an exploration of Mercy, both in everyday life and in the sacred Scriptures. Fr. Rossi has been a missionary in Brazil and Africa and brings a wealth of experience to this topic of Mercy. Each day of the mission featured two identical morning and evening sessions. Topics include:

  • The Mercy Challenge: Assessing personal reactions to challenging situations
  • Mercy in Scripture: Seeing the Mercy of our God in action
  • A Merciful Catholic Church: A review of the Church’s call to Mercy
