The schedule for Monday, March 2nd
6:15PM— Soup and Bread Supper (Auditorium)
7:00-8:00PM—Presentation by Sister Carolyn Gorny-Kupkowski
Sister Carolyn’s topic, “Call to Prayer” will focus on PRAYER and the CHOICES we make along our life’s journey that both enhance our spiritual life and bring us to a deeper understanding of our very selves. “We are, each and all of us, the real subject matter of the spiritual life. But the value of it depends on the choices we make.” Joan Chittester, OSB
Sister Carolyn Gorny-Kupkowski is a member of the Sisters of St. Benedict of Erie. She has a Master’s Degree in Creation Spirituality. She currently facilitates retreats/programs at the Erie Monastery and throughout the United States.

Operation Rice Bowl
Today in Mark’s Gospel, we find Peter, James and John being disturbed hearing Jesus talk about carrying a cross and losing his life. In answer to their misgivings, Jesus took them up a mountain and was transfigured before them. They were filled with awe as they realized his glory was also theirs, a glory not experienced in his future kingdom, but also here on earth.
As we continue our journey with Operation Rice Bowl this week, let us remember in prayer that as a community of faith, we have the obligation to reach out to those most in need. The Gospel specifically calls us to take action on behalf of the moist vulnerable members of society. May our fasting move us to action on behalf of the poor, and may our almsgiving assist Catholic Relief Services with agriculture programs that help farmers improve crop yields throughout the world.
If you are moving or changing your phone number or email address, please let the parish office know. You can do this by mailing a note, phoning, emailing or dropping a note in the collection basket. To our “snow birds” you too need to let us know when you are leaving and when you are returning so that we can hold your mailings. If you are going to a nursing home or assisted living center or are in the hospital, call so we can keep our records updated and we can visit. We depend on our parishioners to help keep our records current. Thank you for your help. Any questions, call Mary Ann at 456-6256.
