Dear Sacred Heart Family,
As we start our Lenten journey, many of us have attended or heard about parish Lenten missions. Such events are often either a series of talks by different speakers or the same speaker (s) on different topics. Supposedly, the main purpose of such missions or talks is to invite the members of the parish to a deeper meditation or reflection on their Lenten journey. This Lent we are going to do something different. We are going to do a five session video presentation on Christ’s passion known as No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion. It is authored and Presented by Edward Sri, No Greater Love also features Fr. Mike Schmitz, Jeff Cavins, Jennifer Fulwiler, Curtis Martin, Teresa Tomeo, Fr. Josh Johnson, and Elizabeth Sri. Filmed on location in the Holy Land, every session will start with opening prayer, 30 minutes video, question answer session and closing prayer. Please join us on Mondays, February 22, March 1, 8, 15th and 22nd at 7:00pm in our Church. We will follow COVID-19 guidelines, wearing masks and social distancing to safeguard our parishioners.
I also invite you to spend one hour with Jesus in Adoration. Adoration is now every Friday from 9:00am to 6:50pm. Each Friday, Holy Mass will begin immediately following Benediction at 7:00pm. During Lent, Sacred Heart also invites you to join us for Stations of the Cross at 7:30pm on Friday, led by the Ministries of Sacred Heart. During Lent, take the money you would have spent on dinners eating out, clothes, iTunes, etc. and purchase cans for our St. Vincent de Paul Lenten Works of Charity 40 Cans-40 Days. There will be a collection container in the gathering space of church.
Sincerely in Christ and Mary Immaculate,
Fr. James Kaniparampil CMI
