LENTEN MISSION COMING TO OUR AREA: You are cordially invited to a 6-day Lenten Mission being held at local Ukrainian Greek Catholic Parishes in the beginning of March.  Please see the special flyer for all the details.  The Missionary Preacher will be Fr. Protodeacon Michael Waak from the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Philadelphia.  The spiritual purpose of the Mission will be that together we grow in closeness to God and learn our Faith.  After each Lenten service and talk, there will be a reception, during which there will be a question and answer period between the people and the clergy. Bring any questions you may have about Jesus, our Faith, our church, and why we worship the way we do.  Remember, there is no “dumb” question, except the one you have but didn’t ask.  Don’t be shy!  The more we know about our Jesus Christ and our Faith, the stronger our Faith will become.  Hope to see you at our Mission!

Second Sunday of Lent
The second Sunday of Lent is called “Sunday of the palsied Man.” Men must repent for their sins, if they want to be forgiven. Christ cannot heal our soul if we do not repent (turn back to God) for having offended God by our iniquities. The Church leads us in pious exercises of prayer and fasting because our weakness can be healed by them.
First and Second finding of John The Baptist’s head, the symbol of all the prophets. Wednesday commemorates the Theotokos, the Mother of God, and the beginning of His passion and also venerates the life-giving Cross on which He died. On Thursday, the Church venerates the holy Apostles and St. Nicholas. On Friday, she celebrates the memory of the passion of Christ and His death on the Cross. In short, every week is a ‘little Holy Week’ and every Sunday is a ‘little Resurrection of the Lord.’

SANCTUARY LIGHT: The Sanctuary Light is requested to burn this week Feb. 24-Mar. 3 by Daughter Dolores & Paul Hoover in memory of Mother Anna Soppeck.
