Lent 2021

HOPE

He Offers Peace Everyday

Here are this week's suggestions:

  • Make a list of ten things you are grateful for in your life.
  • Fast from criticizing others aloud or silently in your mind. Seek to understand instead.
  • Pray at the sound of sirens from emergency vehicles. Pray for the people who might be in trouble.

Don’t forget to write your weekly prayer and put in the jars at Mass or in the parish office.
