Third Sunday In Lent March 19, 2017 A.D.

TODAY’S INSTRUCTION ON THE FAITH: How can the terms ,”the Fall” and “Original Sin” be best explained?

LENTEN STUDY NEXT WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22, 7:00 PM
If you are joining us in the Lenten readings from The Elements of the Spiritual Life by Frederic Harton, this week’s reading is chapter 11. It is particularly helpful towards self-examination and in preparation for sacramental confession. In all these chapters we are reading, the author clarifies what sin looks like in our lives, emphasizes the grace and mercy of God, and shows us excellent tools to use as we seek to grow in holiness and love for God and others. Join in the reading even if you cannot come on Wednesdays.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS EVERY FRIDAY IN LENT: The next service is Friday, March 24 at Noon.
