Dear Friend:
 
As I share this note we are preparing to enter Lent, the great season of repentance and renewal for us and other believers in the Lord.  May this be a time of grace and great blessing for you and all those near you!
 
For our three affiliated parishes (and our friends) we are offering each Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon faith sharing sessions based on Matthew Kelly's excellent book The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic.  I enjoyed Matthew's conference in Ogdensburg in the fall immensely, and am looking forward very much to taking part in these sessions.  Father Amyot, Deacon Connelly, and I will be leading the sessions.  I am delighted to invite you to join us for this experience.  I am confident it will add significantly to the experience of Lent for all of us who take part.
 
We will be sharing in the Stations of the Cross each Wednesday at St. Andrew's at 6:30 pm and each Friday afternoon at 5:05 at St. Raymond's.  Please join us for this hallowed prayer.  For so many participation in daily Mass will be the cornerstone of their Lenten observance.  Our schedule is posted weekly in the bulletin and available on this website.  Give yourself a great gift and take part in weekday Mass through these days.
 
Later in the season (starting the weekend of 29/30 March) Fr. Bill Muench will be with us to lead us in a Lenten Mission.  Parishioners and guests are welcome.  Please join us then too.
 
All our people and the needs of our friends will be remembered in my prayers in Lent.  Please pray for me and for us all as well.  May God bless you abundantly during these sacred days!
 
Sincerely in Jesus the Lord,
Msgr. John R Murphy
Pastor
