Sister Celine Jonas, age 95, died at 5 a.m. on Friday, February 28th. The Franciscan Wake is Monday, March 3rd and her funeral is Tuesday March 4 at 11 a.m. Before she died she said several times, “I am leaving this world.” And she did. We will miss her quiet, gentle ways.
Tomorrow, Tuesday is doughnut Day here at the Motherhouse. We will have fresh home-made doughnuts for morning snack…and throughout the day. And then the Lenten fasting begins tomorrow.
Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent…(and that means Easter is April 20th.) May the penance you do for Lent lead you to a closer relationship to Our Lord.
The first Friday of March is World Day of Prayer. World Day of Prayer is an ecumenical movement of many Christian traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer. This year the prayer is prepared by the women of Egypt. We will gather at First Lutheran Church at 1:30 p.m.
Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 16th. Spring those clocks ahead one hour.
Blessings and Peace,
Sister Mary Lou
