ASH WEDNESDAY COLLECTION: The Collection for the Church in Central and Eastern Europe illuminates the way for the people of the region by helping
Catholic organizations offer affordable shelter, training for seminarians, pastoral care, and catechesis. Your donation today helps to restore the Church and
build the future in the aftermath of Soviet rule. Please be generous to the Collection for the Church in Central and Eastern Europe. Visit www.usccb.org
(search "Church in Central and Eastern Europe.") to learn more about the important projects funded by the Collection.
LENT BEGINS WITH ASH WEDNESDAY: this March 5th is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are both
days of strict *fast and **abstinence. Abstinence is also to be observed on the Fridays of Lent.
*Fasting- When fasting, you may eat one (1) full meal a day; for example a light breakfast and lunch and a normal size supper. Those aged 18 to 59 are
obliged to fast.
**Abstinence- Those 14 and over must not eat meat.
THE ASH WEDNESDAY MASSES: Please note the times of the Masses on Ash Wednesday: 7:30 AM, 9:00 AM and 7:00 PM. There will not be a Holy
Hour on Ash Wednesday.
EVENING BIBLE STUDY with Father Joe will not be held on Wednesday, March 5 because it is Ash Wednesday. Instead it will be held on Wednesday,
March 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Center. At that time they will finish their study of the Gospel of St. Luke.
FIRST FRIDAY: Friday, March 7th is First Friday and we will have Mass at 7:00 PM. Why not come to the fish fry to eat and then stay for Mass at 7:00?
Please join us for the Mass.
TIME CHANGE: Daylight Savings Time starts on the second Sunday in March of each year. That will be next Sunday, March 9. Remember to "spring
forward" by one hour and "lose" an hour sleep. At 2:00 AM on Sunday morning, March 9 the time becomes 3:00 AM. If you fail to do so, you may be late
A CELEBRATION OF SACRED MUSIC: Just a reminder that next Sunday, March 9 at 4:00 p.m. we will have a concert as part of our Jubilee 150
Celebration. Tom Kendzia will perform original music for worship with influences from around the world. Be sure and invite your friends!
PARISH AUDIT: The Archdiocese audits parishes on a rotating basis and we have requested our audit, which will occur in May. In preparation for the audit,
we had a review of our internal control procedures last Fall. The outside auditor made some suggestions for how we could better safeguard the assets of the
parish, and we have already implemented many of those suggestions. Please direct any questions to Peg Reed, CPA, the parishioner who is the chair of
the Parish Finance Council. She can be reached at 513-254-3399 or at. email@example.com
Ash Wednesday Prayer for Families
O Lord of all love and unquenchable compassion,
Burn in our hearts throughout the day of ashes.
Give us courage to root out and set fire to all the junk in our lives:
Pettiness and impatience, overindulgence and indifference.
Where thee is a grudge, help us burn it away with forgiveness.
Where there is fear, help us burn it away with the fire of your love.
Where there is greed, help us burn it away with self-sacrifice.
Where there is pride, help us burn it away with the awareness of God's grace.
And after we've offered up all our shortcomings on your altar,
Help us to rebuild our house on an indestructible foundation of love.
