From Father Zywan – Bulletin Message for February 24, 2019
Are You Plugged In?
Great things are happening within the Catholic Community of Wexford! Amidst changes and transitions within the Church, this is a great time for all of us to find our place in God’s amazing plan. Here’s how we hope to help you: Pray, participate in the Sacraments, be open to growing in the faith!
Pray: Make time each day to talk and listen to God each day. We’re never alone; God is always with us. Stay connected at home, visit Jesus in his Eucharistic Presence at church; read Scripture, pray the rosary, just be still in the presence of God. Prayer works!
Participate in the Sacraments: In addition to Sunday Mass, participate in the Eucharistic banquet an additional day during the week. Celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation. See the opportunities that are there for you. The weekly Mass schedule may be found in the weekly newsletter (bulletin) or visit us online.
Grow in the Faith: If the last time you made yourself available to learn more about the Lord and the faith was in grade school or CCD, see what you’re missing! Attend any or all of the following sessions:
Metanoia (n.) the journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life
A Lenten Retreat on the theme of deeper conversion and repentance. If you have a relationship with Jesus and want to surrender more fully and answer to his call to holiness, this is for you!
