Pastor’s Desk

Dear Friends,        

         We have had a longer period of time between the beginning of the year and Lent. March 1st is Ash Wednesday and I will share with you our Lenten schedule next week. But in preparation I would like our Liturgical Ministers to sign-up to assist us on Ash Wednesday.

    Lectors: We will need a reader for each Mass or Prayer Service on Ash Wednesday. Please sign-up for a time next weekend.

         Eucharistic Ministers: Blessed ashes are a “sacramental” and can be distributed by Eucharistic Ministers. We will need a Eucharistic Minister at each Mass or Prayer Service.

         Ushers: We will need ushers at each Mass or Prayer Service because we will have a special collection for “Feeding the Hungry”. Almsgiving is part of our Lenten journey.

         Thank you for your support. A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board by the Sacristy. Last year more than 1000 people attended over Ash Wednesday. Please assist us in serving our people.

Peace, Monsignor Martin P. Ryan, D. Min.
