GREETINGS FROM THE PASTOR

GREETINGS FROM THE PASTOR

Welcome to Old St. Mary’s!

Many of us this weekend will join Moses at the burning bush, and then hear the parable about a fig tree. Many others will be present for a scrutiny and hear about the Samaritan woman. That means we've arrived at the Third Sunday of Lent and we're getting really serious about our Catechumens and Candidates, and everyone preparing for Easter Sacraments.

This weekend at Old St. Mary's we will celebrate the First Scrutiny with our Catechumens. It is an intense time for them, reflecting on the desire to have Christ as part of their lives and seeing that it does work through them. For the rest of us, through all 3 scrutinies, we reflect on how we have committed to Christ as disciples and use the gift of his presence to live our own lives and decide our course of action.

At Old St. Mary's, throughout this week ahead, we'll be doing various celebrations and investigations into our faith. Monday Night, 3/25, we have a special Stations of the Cross for our kids. And Thursday, our school will observe several hours of adoration with Exposition. And Friday, many of the parish's eighth graders will be celebrating Confirmation with Bishop Bartosic.

Next weekend, we enter the second scrutiny and join with the man born blind, even as others in the parish will gather with the Prodigal son once again at their Masses. In both cases, what it means to be healed and reconciled will be seen.

Speaking of reconciled, the Parish Lenten Reconciliation Service is this Tuesday night, March 26 at 7 p.m. in the Church - we hope you'll join us for that.

Check out our parish website for more news and big events, and then come join us. Continued blessings on your Lent.

Fr. Brad
