Fr. Chris Bulletin Letters

Dear Friends,


Today, on this Second Sunday of Lent, we read about the Transfiguration of Jesus.  A cloud came and from the cloud a loud voice which said, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” As we continue our 40 days of Lenten prayer, almsgiving and fasting may we make an extra effort to listen to Jesus!

Each Tuesday of Lent beginning at 5:30 pm at Prince of Peace Church we will celebrate Mass and during the homily, time recite the Stations of the Cross. After Mass, we will have our “Formed” retreat session called “Forgiven”.  You will find more information on the “Forgiven” retreat opportunity elsewhere in today’s bulletin.

  This Friday, March 5th Shawe Hilltopper Girls Basketball team will sponsor a takeout only Fish Fry at Pope John Cafeteria from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The Knights of Columbus will lead the Stations of the Cross this Friday and every Friday of Lent at 7:00 pm at  St. Patrick’s Chapel. 

This year there will not be a communal Lenten Reconciliation service.  Confessions will take place Tuesday evenings from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm at Prince of peace and on Saturday, February 27th and  Saturday, March 13th from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm at Prince of Peace Church.  You may also call me for a private appointment but don’t wait until Good Friday!

Please check the bulletin for the daily Mass schedule and other Lenten opportunities.


May our Lenten observance truly be a time of prayer, reflection, and gratitude for all God has done for us!



    Father Chris
