“Lenten Season.” A message from Fr. Sam.

Good and blessed morning,

I pray that God has blessed you and your loved ones.

Today is the first Sunday in the 40-day Lenten season. Lent is the period of the church year leading up to the celebration of Resurrection Sunday. It has been used for centuries as a time for personal reflection, sacrifice, fasting, and recommitment of the Christian’s life.

As we enter the Lenten season, let us examine our own lives in this regard. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you willing to endure suffering because you are a follower of Christ?
  • Are you willing to follow Christ for the rest of your life, even until the day of your death?
  • What are the particular distractions in your life that sidetrack or delay your own Journey to Jerusalem?
  • What must you give up to follow Jesus to the cross?

Let us begin this journey with prayer and determination on this, the first Sunday of Lent, 2021.

Continue to strengthen your home altars by praying together as a family and sharing the word of God. This practice will produce strong individuals.

Please find livestream link to our 1st Sunday in lent service on our website starting at 9:30am here.

Our bulletin is also attached here.
