10:30 Mass live streamed to YouTube or Facebook OLQACHURCH.org
On Ash Wednesday, over 100 of our people came to Holy Mass, inaugurating our Lenten Season of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Lent is a time for reconciliation and spiritual transformation. It is not enough to believe the Good News that Jesus saves us, unless we actively undergo the transformation that comes with repentance. Change is often difficult for many people. As Christians, we are called to a continuous change in Jesus Christ. The Good News is that God will not leave us on our own, on our journey through life. Rather, He will give us His Holy Spirit, to help us be transformed more fully into His own Image and Likeness. God loves us that much. “Behold, I stand at the door and knock… If you open the door, I will come in… and stay with you, forever.” It is time to open the doors of our hearts and minds, wide.
In addition to our regular Mass Schedule, we will offer video presentations of the Stations of the Cross, on Friday Evenings throughout Lent, at 6 p.m. These Stations are about 30 minutes, each. Our Adult Religious Education Program is featuring a video presentation on the Letter to the Hebrews, on Sundays at 11:30 a.m. These presentations are about 45 minutes, each. The Rosary is prayed prior to masses. See bulletin for various days and times. Confessions are by appointment, or after any of our weekday masses, upon request.
Let us make this Lent truly a time of repentance, prayer, and transformation, as we follow in the footsteps of Jesus on his way to Calvary. Let us all take up our cross, daily, and follow Him.
