    • During the 40 days of Lent there will be two daily Masses: 8:15am Monday to Saturday and 7:00pm evening Mass Monday to Friday in the Chapel. Stations of the Cross will be on Friday after Mass, morning and evening. Confessions will be every Saturday at 4:00pm to 4:45pm and Monday evenings from 7:30 to 8:30pm in Church. Almsgiving, fasting and abstinence are also Lenten practices. Ash Wed. & Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence, and we should abstain from eating meat on Fridays.
    • During these six weeks of Lent we are encouraged to pray harder than ever that the Spirit of God will touch our lives and make them holy. That is, more aware of God’s inspiration.
    • A special thank you to Gene Links who donated the new seat cushions as well as the repair and recovering of the kneelers in memory of his wife of 65 years, Terry Links. Terry was the first OLM secretary and the only secretary for Fr. Ryan. She had a degree in nursing and served as the OLM School nurse. On February 13th, their wedding anniversary, Gene, and family attended 8:15 Mass and a commemorative plaque was placed into the Chapel.
    • Now that it’s Lent, there is a feeling of spring in the air. And also there is a stirring of healthy feelings inside me. I’m looking forward to soon being well enough to return to celebrate Mass with you. Many thanks for your prayers and best wishes.
    • For clients who come to the Fr, English Food Pantry, often their monthly food money runs out too early. The food pantry helps keep them fed. Next weekend is 4Get Me Not weekend. Please help our families by leaving non-perishable foods in the church vestibule.
    • The teens of Rise would like to extend a "Heart"-felt THANK YOU for supporting their Valentine fundraiser bringing us one step closer to achieving our financial goal. The OLM community has been amazingly supportive of the work we do each summer to help families living in sub-par conditions, and for that we are immensely grateful. Look for our Irish Soda Bread Sale coming in early March. Stay tuned for more info.
    • Lenten booklets are available in the narthex. Also, there are a few calendars left in the minister’s sacristy Please take one.
    • Please take home a box, fill it with cash to share your resources with people around the world so that they might rise above poverty and provide for their families and communities through CRS (Catholic Relief Services) and return it at the end of Lent.
    • Thank you to the following volunteers who helped to serve at Eva’s Kitchen on Saturday, February 3rd: Kenny Mertz, Mary Smith, Eileen Donnelly, and Pat Brinks. In addition, thank you for all the volunteers who cooked the chicken casserole that helped to serve approximately 175 people.
    • We have been alerted to a system error that occurred when we processed the 2017 tax substantiation statements. If you need an updated form, please contact the rectory and we will be happy to send one out.
