“Lent continues to draw nearer. Only a week and a half and it will be Ash Wednesday – Feb 10. It’s not too early to begin thinking about how we will make this season holy. What will we do for penance? Will we make use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation? It will be very important that we do so. For many people we are almost at the point of saying, we need to make use of this sacrament at least once a year! We should make use of it much more often, but perhaps for some every Lent is certainly a minimum. Penance Services will be held at MPH on March 1, and at Assumption on March 3. Let’s get those dates on our calendars! I hope we can all also set aside February 12 for the Assumption Fish Fry, and February 19 and March 11 for the MPH Seafood Buffets. We count on every parishioner to do their part in making these events a great success.”…Fr. Dave
