“ This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday – the beginning of our Lenten fast. This is our season to truly take to heart the Lord’s call to repentance – to truly turn from our sins. This is the season when we, together, reflect and work to grow in grace. There are many ways to do so; let’s at least do something to take advantage of this holy season.
     “The Osage County Historical Society has pushed me to finally get my photographs together from last spring for a presentation on Gothic Cathedrals for the coming quarterly meeting on Monday Feb 23 in Loose Creek. Dinner ($12) at 6:30 reservations (897-2932) requested by Feb 27. All are welcome.”…Fr. Dave
