The Light Is On For You:

Encounter the Peace of Christ

Tuesday, February 27: 7-9 PM at St. Bartholomew

Saturday, March 3, 2-4 PM at St. Vivian

 

If you have been reluctant to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, have been away from the Church for some time, or just find it difficult to get to a regularly scheduled confession time or communal penance service, this is your chance to encounter the peace of Christ through the grace of the Sacrament. No stress, just peace!

A Transformative Lent 

 

Stations of the Cross

  • Mondays of Lent, 7:00 PM at St. Bartholomew, followed by recitation of the rosary.

  • Friday nights, 7:00 PM at St. Vivian. 3 PM on Good Friday.

Almsgiving

"Almsgiving" or "Charity" embodies all the deeds we can do to remake the world or to share God’s blessings with others. What can we share? Our treasures: donations for Catholic Charities, the Rice Bowl, the Churches in Eastern Europe, Catholic Relief Services, SVDP, the CMA, or other campaigns for human good.

 

It's also sharing our time and talents: contacting someone from whom we are estranged; babysitting for busy parents; writing/e-mailing an elected official on behalf of the needs of social justice; imparting kind words to a harried cashier or waiter; or random acts of kindness. 

 

Receive the Eucharist More than Once a Week

You can’t help but be changed by the people you hang out with, so spend more time with Jesus!

  • Communion Service, M-F, 6:15AM at St. Bartholomew

  • Daily Mass (Mon & Tues, 8 AM at St. Bartholomew; Thurs & Fri, 8 AM at St. Vivian)

  • Noon Masses on Lenten Wednesdays at St. Vivian. 

All About Lent

What is Lent? When does it start? What should I give up for Lent? Learn the answer to these and many other common questions about Lent.

 

Another Look at Fasting

Self-control is a skill. Like learning to play piano, it needs to be studied, practiced, developed, honed, and maintained.

 

As Christians over the age of 14, we abstain from meat on all Fridays in Lent and on Ash Wednesday.

 

We also fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On these days we only eat one full meal; two other light meals are permitted, but no snacking. 

 

Prayers for Lent

Most people have never prayed a prayer of transformation. Learn this and other prayers to enhance your journey through Lent.

Special Seminary Video

 

A graduate student at Northern Kentucky University, Ann Herbert, produced this very fine video history of

Mount St. Mary’s Seminary of the West.

 

It is slightly over an hour long and a delightful look at this great jewel of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

 

Enjoy!

Remembering Your Loved One

 

Consider having the red sanctuary candle by the

tabernacle lit "in honor of" or "in memory of" your loved

one. The suggested donation would be $5, and the candle

would burn for one week. Your loved one would be

mentioned in the bulletin and during the weekend

intentions. If you are interested, contact Joanne at the

parish office (522.3680).

 

 


 

Headed the Right Way?

 

If you've been away from Christ and/or His Church

and are ready to turn your feet

and your life back to Him,

we would love to help you

take those important steps!
