A word from Fr. Bill…..
Dear Parishioners:
Even though we still see some poinsettias around, Lent is just around the corner. Ash Wednesday, February 18th, is only two
weeks from this Wednesday.
In this weekend's Gospel, Jesus gets the attention of the people because "He speaks with authority." Lent is a time for us to let
Jesus get our attention. How can this be best done? There are certainly various ways. For example, we will have available two
pamphlets for your daily private reflection and prayer. We also hope to have the opportunity for parishioners to come together
once a week for five weeks to share their thoughts, insights and prayer. But, I need your help to plan this.
One thought I had is this. Since Pope Francis is coming to Philadelphia next September and since he is coming to help us
celebrate the World Meeting of Families, maybe we could combine these two ideas during Lent. We could reflect, discuss and
pray about five different short quotes from Pope Francis which pertain to five different aspects of family life.
Here is where your help comes in. Would you respond to the following questions to let me know the amount of interest there is
for parishioners to participate in such a program, and the details that would help flesh it out? You can just cut (or tear) this out
and return it to me by hand, by mail, or by placing it in the collection basket next weekend.

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
