Blessed Lent and Group Reminder

Peace and Blessed Lent to you. I pray that you are able to begin your Lenten season with prayerful thought and preparation. Lent is such a transformational time of year, a time to cleanse us of what holds us back from fully uniting ourselves with Jesus. Below is a link to the Pope’s Lenten Holy Mass. I also wanted to remind you that our next spiritual exercise group is this coming Monday, March 11, 2019 at 6:30 pm. Please look to this blog for the upcoming notes if you cannot attend the meeting at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. You will be able to join us from your phone or computer. May the Lord Bless you abundantly!
