Our Mission: People of God, united in Christ, serving others, welcoming all to the Table of Life

Our Lady of Lourdes † Saint Anne

Dear Friends,

We have begun the Holy Season of Lent when we are invited to take a spiritual retreat “in place,” as it were. Even those of us who are very busy with work, studies and the responsibilities of life, can try to be mindful of God’s presence throughout the day. When I was a child, we were taught to give up something we like for Lent. Depriving ourselves of some favorite food or TV program was suggested as a good thing to do for Lent. Now I find it helpful to think of what I can positively do in place of what I give up. So, if I abstain from a favorite program or activity during Lent, what do I do with that time? Perhaps I can use that time to pray or read the Bible.

The three pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Fasting reminds of us our own emptiness and our hunger to be filled by God. Prayer is our conversation with God in which we focus on God’s presence and activity in our lives. Almsgiving is our expression of God’s

compassion for the needs and suffering of others.

Let’s accompany and encourage each other as we journey together toward the new life of Easter.

Happy Lent, Fr. Gary Tyman

Sunday, March 6th

Lent is a good time for sacrificing. Let us deny ourselves

something every day to help others. Pope Francis

Notes about the Monthly offertory report:

A favorable monthly variance indicates the “weeklies”

donated during the month exceed the amount expected for the month. Meanwhile, an unfavorable monthly variance indicates the total “weeklies” donated during the month do not meet budgeted expectations and our financial

obligations may not be met.

**Although St Anne Church has a favorable variance compared to the budget for the fiscal year to date, caution must be exercised. The St Anne budget excludes many expenses normally included in an operating budget (lawn care, a dedicated custodian salary and benefits, ect) which are now provided by volunteers and/or benefactor donation. The St Anne community is grateful for our volunteers and special donations, but realize this may not continue into the future.


Pope Francis has invited the entire Church throughout the world to reflect on two questions: As a listening Church, announcing the Gospel, and “journeying together”, how is this “journeying together” happening today in our

particular Church? What steps does the Holy Spirit invite us to take in order to grow in our “journeying together”?

Over the next two months, we are inviting everyone to prayerfully contemplate these questions. We will keep you posted for general listening sessions in which we will invite you to share your thoughts and answers. It’s an opportunity for us to practice listening to one

another. The Pastoral Center has resources on the synod;

please consider checking out their page and our Bishop’s invitation at DOR.org.

Join us at one of our General Listening Sessions:

Tuesday March 8th from 1 to 3PM in the St. Anne Social Hall

Thursday March 10th from 7 to 9PM in Our Lady of Lourdes Church

Please contact Fr. Tyman or Dcn. Bill for more details or

if you want to share directly.
