Second Sunday of Lent

This Weeks Readings: Genesis 15.5-12 Psalm 27; Philippians 3.17-4.1; Luke 9.28b-36.

As Abram looks up into the night sky and sees the radiant stars, God promises him that his descendants will be just as countless. This moves Abram to put his faith in the Lord. As Peter, John, and James look up to the mountaintop and see the transfigured Jesus radiating like a star, God makes a promise: "This is my chosen Son." The Father asks us to put our faith in Christ: "Listen to him." Let us fall silent in faith-filled adoration, gazing at Jesus alone. For the transfiguration that we witness is destined to transfigure us: "He will change our lowly body to conform with his glorifeied body.".

Next Week's Readings: Exodus3.1-8a, 13-15; Psalm 103; 1 Corinthians 10.1-6, 10-12; Luke 13.1-9.

1.       Looking at my daily life, what does surrendering everything to the Lord mean to me? In what ways do I hold back?

Daily Readings:        Liturgy of the Hours      Daily Mass      Saints of the Day

A Lenten Message from our Pastor...

 As St. Patrick's seek to live out our mission to bring God's love into the world through a life-changing friendship with Jesus the season of Lent calls out to us.  Or, more accurately, God calls out to us and asks us to take this time and be more intentional about our spiritual lives. There are different approaches that one may take, whether it be fasting, almsgiving or prayer, but it is good to ask ourselves, "Why?"  read more »

ShareLife

Living the Gospel by helping young mothers

Anika became a mother at the age of 19. Soon after, her fiancé became increasingly controlling. Feeling isolated, she reached out to a ShareLife agency called Rose of Sharon. She and her son attended almost every program offered, including one called Healthy Relationships. Anika realized she didn’t have to tolerate her partner’s behavior. Rose of Sharon helped her find an affordable apartment so she and her son could move out. “I never thought I could make it on my own,” says Anika. “But with the help of Rose of Sharon, here I am doing it.”

March 31 is ShareLife Sunday.
