Greetings in Christ!

As we kick off the Lenten season I want to thank all of you who are joining us in The Activated Disciple 40-Day Challenge. We originally ordered 500 journals and all 500 have been distributed. As I’m typing this we are checking into ordering more for those of you still looking to participate. I want to point out, as you begin the Journal, you will be prompted to read The Activated Disciple book and watch the videos, but please be assured this is not a requirement or even necessary. Additionally, if you miss a day don’t be discouraged or hard on yourself. Just simply pick up the next day.

Our parish is offering several opportunities for those of you interested in engaging in weekly small group conversations throughout the 40 days. More information on this can be found in this bulletin.

As I mentioned last week, Fr Le and I will be using this journal for our homilies all during Lent. It’s never too late to make this your best Lent yet.

The topic on last Wednesday’s Quantum Catechesis teaching was how to repent. I have heard from several of you that found this to be helpful. You can find the episode by date (February 22, 2023) on my Joe In Black Ministries YouTube channel or through your favorite podcast provider.

Thank you all for letting me be your priest.
