This week we begin our Lenten journey toward Easter. Here at St. Luke’s we try to promote ample opportunities to grow in our faith. Each Lent we add a 12:05 p.m. Mass Monday through Friday. On Fridays after Mass we pray together the Stations of the Cross. This Lent we will provide a Lenten booklet entitled, “From Darkness to Light” by Father Joseph Creedon. He will be a Mission retreat speaker from February 27 to March 1. His topic is “Faith Comes Alive – Revisiting Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist and Forgiveness.” All the sessions will begin at 7 p.m. and on Thursday evening there will be the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
I am asking all of you to keep in your prayers our search committee for a principal at St. Luke’s School. This will be going on throughout the Lenten season. During Lent I will also be giving a mission at Immaculate Conception Church in Cranston.
Lent is an old English word that means Spring. In Lent we take a fresh look at our faith in the hopes that it can better shape our lives. Let us pray for one another as we journey out of darkness into the Lord’s light.
