To receive these notes, please send an email to Fr. Krettek.
Meditative Prayer Time
Saturdays, March 17, 24 & 31,

We gather with Fr. Dan Krettek for an hour of prayer time using three methods of prayer; the ancient practice of Lectio Divina, the prayerful reading of sacred scripture; St. Ignatius of Loyola’s practice of the daily Examen, the prayerful review of our daily experiences; and Centering Prayer, one method of the prayer of silence within our Christian tradition of contemplative prayer.

It's that time of year. Liturgically, we remember the journey of Jesus to Jerusalem for his expected and accepted crucifixion. With that in mind, it is also time to share that story from a different, yet Scriptural perspective. "Jesus Christ, Superstar" will be shown in the Social Hall on Palm Sunday, March 25, beginning with snacks at 2:30pm. The movie was highly criticized at the time of its release, but is now seen as following the story of Jesus from his entry into Jerusalem up to His Crucifixion. This story portrays the likely humanness of His disciples as they tried to understand the true God / true man aspect of Jesus. The music is fantastically engaging. There will be copies of lyrics and an interpretation of the various scenes to assist in understanding the connection of the movie to Scripture. These will be on the table in the gathering area in advance of the showing to take home and review.
We’re Responding to Pope Francis
In his encyclical On Care for Our Common Home, Pope Francis calls upon the whole world to change lifestyles to care for creation and poor and vulnerable people. Parishioners have gathered to determine how to respond to Pope Francis’ call and have decided to begin by distributing information about how we can reduce our own solid waste. Our Religious Education Program is organizing an Everyday is Earth Day Leadership Team to bring the Pope’s message to life for our children. See “Upcoming Events” on our On Care for Our Common Home page for a summary of all the ideas currently being considered.
