Text Box: MESSAGE FROM 
FATHER JENSON



We have entered the season of Lent.  This is a time of renewal in faith, hope and love.  With our Lenten practices we hope to stir up the flame of faith in our hearts so that we might experience more dearly the love of our Lord Jesus, and more effectively bring that love to others as a result.  There is great need for Christians to be effective ambassadors of Christ in the world.  May our sacrifices and extra acts of charity spur us on to be true servants of the light in a world often overshadowed by the darkness of sin.  One added result in working a serious plan for personal growth in faith in Lent is that it also builds solidarity among us as Catholics as we share what we are doing for Lent.   May we become stronger as individuals, and as a Church, this Lent.  

Mary, Mother of Divine Compassion, pray for us.

Father will be away this Monday-Wednesday visiting friends in Chicago.  I will be taking the train there on Monday and returning Wednesday night.  While Iím away, everyone must be good.  I hope to see everyone at the Fish Fry on Friday and I can fill you in on my trip.

Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
