first sunday in lent
Prayer. It is how we communicate with God. As we begin this season of Lent together as a parish family, there is so much to pray for. This week’s newsletter is filled with many prayers. Prayers for the people of Ukraine. For our leaders. The request for prayers for our catechumens and candidate from our parish preparing to be welcomed into the church this Easter. For those who are sick, and for those who have gone before us. I have also included an article from America Magazine “Praying for Peace in Ukraine – Even When it Feels Useless.” As you will read in the article, Jesus over and over again in scripture says “Peace be with you.” That is my prayer for you.
Today is the World Day of Prayer, a global ecumenical movement led by Christian women who welcome you to join in prayer and action for peace and justice.
May we continue to unite all of our prayers together as we pray for peace. When we may find it difficult to pray, may our prayers lift one another up.
May God bless and keep safe each of you and those that you love.
