SPIRITUAL LIFE
PARISH LIFE
SACRISTANS: THE INVISIBLE MINISTRY
As you arrive for Mass, the altar breads, water, and wine
are there in the inner lobby; chalices can be seen on the
credence table to the left of the altar. After Mass, as you
take a few minutes to talk to friends or get a hug from Fr.
Charlie, the “altar dishes” (sacred vessels) are cleared
away. Setting up for each Mass and cleaning up
afterwards are not difficult jobs, but our priest-celebrants
or deacons must do it—unless someone helps. This
“helper,” whom you may never see, is a Sacristan.
If you can devote a few minutes to this ministry before
and after Mass, or if you are a Sacristan now, please
come to the Parish Library on Tuesday evening,
February 24, at 7pm. Questions: contact Bill Laudeman at
877-8025 or [email protected]
MARDI GRAS POTLUCK
& FR. CHARLIE’S BIRTHDAY
Join us as we celebrate Fr Charlie's birthday "Mardi Gras
Style" on Tuesday, February 17, at noon. Please bring a
dish to share—whether meat, casserole, vegetable, salad or
fruit. Dessert (including King Cake!) and drinks will be
provided. A special Mass will be celebrated at 11:15am
and the lunch will follow in the Parish Life Center. If you
would like to help with set-up/decorating or clean-up
please call Kyra in the parish office.

Refleccion Sobre La Palabra Del Senor
“El Señor sana los corazones destrozados, venda
sus heridas”. Cristo es el remedio de nuestros
males. Debemos acercarnos a Él y acercar a
aquellas personas allegadas a nosotros como se
nos dice el Evangelio de hoy: “Al anochecer,
cuando se puso el sol, le llevaron todos los
enfermos y endemoniados. La población entera se
agolpaba a la puerta. Curó a muchos de diversos
males y expulsó muchos demonios”.
Quien es consciente de que “nadie es bueno, sino
uno, Dios” (Mc 10, 18), se acercará al Sacramento
de la Penitencia y animará a que se acerquen
quienes están a su lado: mis hijos, mis familiares,
mis amigos..., porque “gracias a la medicina de la
Confesión Sacramental la experiencia del pecado
no degenera en desesperación” (S. Agustín, Com
S. 102).
En ocasiones, las frecuentes capitulaciones en
materia de sensualidad y amor propio o la falta de
constancia en las prácticas de piedad, provocan
una reacción despechada que se traduce en un
“yo, para hacer las cosas así, mejor no las hago,
medianías, no”. S. Tomás de Aquino decía que “es
mejor andar el camino aunque sea cojeando, que
caminar rápidamente fuera de él. Porque quien va
cojeando por el camino aunque adelante poco, se
