Notes from Father Joel


Welcome to Lenten Season 2019! Delicious fresh fish fry on Fridays is in the air! We all know where to go, right or left? Hahaha!!! I hope somebody will have the joyful courage to invite Fr. Nonito and me for that fish fry dinner.

So, my dear co-travelers, as we continue to journey in this life as disciples on the way and invited by our Bishop David Ricken to be Missionaries of Hope to the world of our time in the history of the Church, the Word of God is always there to guide us, to illumine our paths, to remind us of things we need to take care of. So, the letter to the Hebrews affirms that Jesus was tested in every way, like all of us, although He did not succumb to temptation. Temptations come from the evil one, and their target is to make us fall. On the other hand, trials and tests may be allowed by God to make us strong or be purified.

Now, as Catholics, Lenten season is, as we all know, the season for us to go to CONFESSION. Yes, it is not easy to go to confess our sins to our priests. This is the culture. And this kind of culture is the Work of the Evil One. Sad to say many of us succumb to this testing. Please fight back by coming back to ourselves admitting our need God’s mercy to be strong and stronger than any temptation that may come again and again in life.

Wishing you all a blessed first Sunday of Lent 2019!



 

Co -Traveler, Fr. Joel

 

Lent

Lent is historically a time of conversion and preparation leading up to the celebration of Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection, otherwise known as the Paschal Mystery. Prayer, fasting, and giving alms are key ways Catholics observe Lent because these are the ways the Jewish people, including Jesus, have always attended to their relationship with God.


Fasting and Abstaining

Because Lent is a time of conversion and preparation, most Catholics are asked to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday that is to eat one main meal and two smaller meals with no eating between meals. There is also the obligation of abstinence which means no eating meat -- on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all the Fridays of Lent. 

 

The Mass – A slice at a time

On Universal Prayer or Prayer of the Faithful

These intentions or petitions should be sober, be composed with a wise liberty and in few words and be expressive of the prayer of the entire community. And they are announced from the ambo or another suitable place by the Deacon or by a cantor, a reader or one of the lay faithful. And the Church attendants from their part, stand and give expression their prayer either by an invocation said in common (Lord, hear our prayer) after each petition or by praying in silence. 




  

On Wednesday March 6, the Faith Formation students attended Ash Wednesday Mass and enjoyed a potluck afterwards.  The families were given Rice Bowls and a Family Lenten Calendar with daily suggestions for activities every day in Lent.  The next Mass/Potluck with be April 3rd, 2019. 

 

 

Please include our Faith Formation children and catechists in your prayers during Lent and as we prepare for the celebration of Easter.

 On Fire for the Lord

Many of us wonder where our faith journey may take us.  For Julianne Stanz her faith journey took her from a little mountain village in Ireland to northeastern Wisconsin.  Her role as Director of the New Evangelization Department for the Diocese allows her to share our Catholic faith with adults of all ages through programs like Girlfriends in God, Catholic Campus Ministries, and Encounter for Young Adults. “This work is tremendously important to me because it has impacted my own life on such a personal level,” Julianne says.  “I’ve seen the effects when people are energized in their faith.  They are really on fire for Christ and His teachings.” Julianne’s work has impacted more than ten thousand people, and without the support of the Bishop’s Appeal, Julianne would be unable to bring Christ’s message to them.  

To make a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal contact your parish, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give, or call Debbie toll-free at 877-500-3580 ext. 8184.
