Love and Serve

“Every individual will develop knowledge, skills and understanding with confidence and belief to take in life's journey. Together we will excel, love and serve through the Catholic Faith without limitations.”



Today is Ash Wednesday and the Season of Lent which does two things: 

first, it prepares us to celebrate Easter and the four most important days of the Christian calendar: 

The Mass of the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday; the Lord's Suffering and Death on Good Friday;

his time in the tomb on Holy Saturday; and, his Resurrection on Easter Sunday. 

Lent also reminds us of the great nobility and dignity which was given to us on the day of our Baptism;

during Lent, we prepare to renew our Baptismal Promises during the Easter Vigil.

There is one way I want to encourage you during this holy season by sharing with you
the Daily Gospel reflections from Bishop Robert Barron.  He is the Auxiliary Bishop in Los Angeles.  He is a great scholar and preacher. 
His Word on Fire institute sends a daily email with a reflection on the daily Mass readings. 
These are short and very helpful.  Please find below today's reflection which I am sure you will appreciate.
