Dear People of God:
The first Christians observed with great devotion the days of our Lord's passion and resurrection, and it became the custom of the Church to prepare for them by a season of penitence and fasting. This season of Lent
provided a time in which convert to the faith were prepared for Holy Baptism. It was also a time when those who, because of notorious sins, had been separated from the body of the faithful were reconciled by penitence and forgiveness, and restored to the fellowship of the Church. Thereby, the whole congregation was put in mind of the message of pardon and absolution set forth in the Gospel of our Savior, and of the need which all Christians continually have to renew their repentance and faith.
I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial. and by reading and meditating on God's holy Word.
Items that are in bold are used every week, then versatile staples for many of our most popular meals, and finally a few cleaning supplies. Plastic bins for donations will be available near the organ throughout the month of March, and a blessing will take place prior to Holy Week. Thank you for sharing with our guests!
