Lent 2019

Great Things You Can Do for Lent
 

Ash Wednesday marked the beginning, of Lent, the 40 days of preparation for the Easter season when Christians are called to deepen their spiritual lives through the practices of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. The belief is that our consistent participation in these practices — like exercise we do for our physical health — improves our spiritual well -being by stripping away all that is unnecessary and becoming more mindful of how God is working in our lives. Challenge yourself this year, and go beyond the usual practice of “giving up” something. Now is a great time to take stock of your spiritual life and to grow in it. Not sure where to start?  Try a new spiritual practice.

  • Sign up for an hour of EUCHARISTIC ADORATION. Eucharistic Adoration is offered at Corpus Christi, on Wednesdays after the 12:15 PM Mass, until Thursday morning at 8:00 AM. 
  • Take something on — 40 days of letter writing, 40 acts of kindness, 40 phone calls to the important people in your life.
  • Go to a WEEKDAY MASS one day during the week. See the front page of the bulletin for our daily Mass schedule. 
  • Attend the STATIONS OF THE CROSS at Corpus Christi, on Fridays during Lent at 7:00 PM in the Church.
  • Think about a habit that has kept you from being whom God is calling you to be. Consciously give up that habit for Lent. 
  • Celebrate the SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION. Can’t remember how? Please see: http://www.catholic.org/prayers/ confession.php Confession times are listed on the front page of the bulletin.
