Today is the First Sunday of Lent. May this Lenten Season be a time for each of us, individually and as a Church, to turn away from sin, be open to the light of God’s grace, and walk in the ways of holiness! May we all be transformed into what God wants us to be!
This weekend and next weekend we will be having our In-Pew Commitment Weekend for the Diocesan Annual Campaign. In my talk today at all Masses, I spoke of all the good work the Diocese of Harrisburg does to further the Kingdom of God within the diocese. The Church really depends upon your help and generosity to do the work of Christ that cannot be done by an individual parish. Please be generous this year. And remember that no monies collected for the Diocesan Annual Campaign will go to the Victim’s Compensation Fund or to pay any legal fees associated with the Clergy Sexual Abuse Crisis.
On March 21 at 7:00 pm in the cafeteria we will have a presentation by Janet McNeal, Coordinator of Safe Environment of the Diocese of Harrisburg. Janet is a wife, mother, grandmother, former Captain and sex-crimes investigator in the Pennsylvania State Police, and former head of Megan’s Law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Janet is the wife of a Methodist minister and is a Methodist herself. She will be talking about the following at her presentation:
