Text Box:  “Thanks for your prayers last week as I participated in the “Good Leaders, Good Shepherds” program. I’m sure it will help all of us who are participating become better priests for the Church.
This week begins our parish ‘Mission’ here at Chamois. We will have Mass every evening at 6 pm along with my talk. After Mass we’ll have time for quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament and for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This will be our Lenten Penance ‘service’. I will be available each evening from 7 to 7:45 pm. We’ll end each evening with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at 7:50. Fr. Ed Doyle will be here to ‘hear confessions’ on Friday! As Friday we’ll end, not with an hour of adoration, but with the Stations of the Cross, if you wish to take advantage of Fr. Doyle’s presence, best be here early. We’ll stay as long as we need, but if no one is waiting, we’ll end by 7:30. Please think of coming on Mon, Tues, or Thurs (PSR kids will come on Wed.) to fulfill your Easter duty.
God bless.”...Fr. Dave
