Getting Ready for Lent, 2009
With one week to go till Ash Wednesday, it's time to start getting ready physically and spiritually for this holy season.
Bring your "old" palms to the Church, and we'll collect them for the burning, and we'll use them for our ashes next Wednesday.
This weekend, we'll show the video introducing the Bishop's Annual Appeal for 2009.
If you have already made a gift to the appeal...THANK YOU! If you have not, please consider a gift to the appeal which will benefit the formation of lay ministers, future priests, and other vital activities throughout the Diocese of Trenton.
Please consider participating in the B.A.A. as your Lenten practice of giving alms!
Remember the other two pillars of Lent are fasting and prayer. To that end we invite you to take part in our Friday Simple Meals and the celebration of the Stations of the Cross on Friday evenings.
