THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU
This Lenten season, we invite people to experience God’s mercy and forgiveness through the Sacrament of Penance. Catholic parishes in the Diocese will have Eucharistic Adoration and Confession available every Wednesday evening from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. You are welcome to come for a few minutes or for an hour.
CHRISM MASS Tuesday, April 15th at the Owensboro Sportscenter, 6:30pm. You are invited to take part in one of the most special liturgies in the life of a diocese - the Chrism Mass. At this liturgy, the bishops gather the faithful of the diocese - priest and deacons, religious and laity - around him for the blessing and consecration of the oils that will be used in all our parishes in the coming year. Here the Oil of the Sick, used to strengthenand console and heal those who are infirm, will be blessed. Here the Oil of Catechumens, used to strengthen and free those who are preparing for baptism, will be blessed. Here the Sacred Chrism, used to ordain bishops and priests, to confirm, and to dedicate churches and altars, will be consecrated. And here, too, we will witness the Rite of Recommitment to Ministry by our priests. May our presence at the Chrism Mass be a sign of our support and gratitude for their ministry - and a reminder that baptism calls all of us to lives of service.
OPERATION RICE BOWL 25% of contributions to CRS Rice Bowl remain in our diocese, helping to support local poverty and hunger alleviation programs. This week, we pray for people in our own community who struggle with poverty and hunger.
Thank you for remembering the poor throughout the world this Lenten season. Please remember to bring your Operation Rice Bowl contributions to Church during Holy Week.
STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
"Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!" shout the crowds in today's Gospel. May we be always ready to share our blessings when we are sent in His name!
Readings for next weekend will be Acts 10:34, 37-43 Colossians 3:1-4 John 20:1-9
We invite you to read and study these passages for your own reflection as we prepare for the liturgy we will celebrate as a parish community.
