Stations of the Cross: During Lent, Stations of the Cross will be Fridays at 7:00pm and at 1:30pm when school is in session.
Fridays of Lent: All Fridays of Lent are days when Catholics must abstain from eating meat.
Lenten Reading and Almsgiving: On tables in the Gathering Space are Lenten reading materials. Please take one only per family. On a table by the steps to the Upstairs Chapel are cardboard “Rice Bowls” for Lenten almsgiving. Proceeds will be sent to Catholic Relief Services.
Marriage Building Year: Our “Year of Marriage” has now come to an end with the first Sunday of Lent, but of course we will still need to pray for and support married couples. In order to help us do that here in Our Lady of Victory Parish we have recently formed a Marriage Team.
Members of the Team are:
Andrea Mastro - Bill Taylor (chair couple)
Chris and Samantha Weakland (vice chair couple)
Martin and Mary Ellen Bucknavage
Bob and Mary Hershey
Bob and Nancy Jacobs
Joe and Gerry Leahey
Paul and Olivia Leskowicz
Ed and Carol Miller
If you have suggestions for our Marriage Team about activities in support of marriage you would like to see, please contact one of the above Team members or myself. Check the bulletin in the coming weeks for more news about “marriage building” events at OLV.
Papal Resignation: Our Holy Father’s resignation deserves comment, but with Lent coming I don’t have enough space to write what I want. I’ll save it for next week. In the meantime, let us pray for Pope Benedict, for the College of Cardinals and for the whole Church as we embark on what are mostly uncharted waters.
