Text Box: MESSAGE FROM 
FATHER JENSON


In our Gospel this Sunday we hear our Lord Jesus proclaiming mercy to the woman caught in adultery.  Despite the seriousness of her sin, forgiveness is always available to the repentant.  Because of the consequences of her sin she faced a terrible fate according to the law of the Jewish people.  In her gratitude for the saving of her life from those consequences the conversion of heart that would have followed would be intense.  

We all have need for Godís mercy for the sin in our lives.  May we seek in our prayer to feel a sincerity of conversion like that which she experienced so that we can experience the joy of Easter more intensely this year.  May our Lady help us in our attempt to come to real conversion of heart  so we can witness the power of Godís mercy in our lives.

Catholic Services Appeal: The appeal is nearing its conclusion.  This appeal provides needed funding for many worthy ministries in our Archdiocese, including our own school, Pope John Paul II, as well as for the seminary to help with the formation of our future priests like our teaching parish intern Ben Little.  If you havenít made your pledge yet, please consider making a pledge in the next week or so.  In this way our parish can be a part of helping to ensure that the church in this Archdiocese remains strong and effective.

Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
