First week of Lent.

We’re into the first Week of Lent.  May the Holy Spirit direct you in ways of Prayer, Fasting and Alms  Giving…your time, your talent, your money. 

Paul Baker Hernandez is touring North America to share a wonderful inspirational Latin American music, to talk about life in Latin America and to raise funds to continue grass-roots health, educational and cultural programs in his working class barrio in Managua.  Paul sings in both Spanish and English.  As part of his tour, Paul will be performing here in Sacred Heart Chapel on Wednesday, February 29th at 7 p.m. Free-will offerings will be accepted to support Paul’s “Save the Water, Save the Children” ministry. I hope the program will not be a victim of the predicted big storm for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Friday, March 2nd is the World Day of Prayer service.  This year it is at First Lutheran Church here in Little Falls.  Women, men and Children in 170 countries will celebrate this day.  The women of Malaysia prepared this year’s service.  The theme is “Let Justice Prevail.”  The message of the day is a clear message:  It takes courage, compassion and active engagement for justice to prevail.  World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer on the first Friday of March.   Services begin at sunrise in the Pacific and follow the sun across the globe on the day of celebration.

Last Saturday a group of students and parents from Flensburg, Randall, Sobieski came for a tour of the Convent.  On a tour we show them the Chapel, the Library, have a video and see the display of the Altar Bread Department, St. Francis Center, and talk about the Music Center, Health and Recreation Department, and the Continuing Education Center.

We will have Stations of the Cross on Friday at 3:30 p.m. God bless you this week.
