The Spiritual Transformation of Lent

Posted: February 20, 2016

We journey with Jesus from the desert to the mountaintop on this Second Sunday of Lent.  The readings at Mass remind us that we are first of all spiritual people who struggle with being human.  Our Lenten traditions of Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving help transform us into our best selves as God loves us into holiness.

If you haven't begun your Lenten journey--or if it feels you fell off the wagon--climb aboard!  The Jeff Cavins talks at Holy Redeemer Parish are a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn and grow.  Join us for Stations of the Cross at 6:30pmon Friday and stay after for the presentation.  All are welcome!

 

We still have a few copies of the Little Black Book with daily meditations...pick one up.

 

LIVING STATIONS OF THE CROSS
SUNDAY ~ Feb. 21 ~ 7pm in the Church
The high school teens would like to invite the parish to join them as they pray the Stations of the Cross with their bodies and their actions.  This will be a great opportunity for the whole family to pray together.  Modern day reflections will be incorporated into this beautiful prayer.
