Parish Bulletin Article: "Forgiven and 40 Hours": 3-12-17

Love your neighbor…
Feed the hungry…
As Lent is packed for different ways to grow with our Lord, here are a few more tidbits.
We will be using a four-week model to see both a video and have a conversation with each other.  We will gather on Wednesday mornings (March 15th, 22nd, 29th and April 5th) at 8:30am to check out “Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession”. 
Here is the goal through the Augustine Institute: “Forgiven explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God’s love.  By looking at God’s revelation of his mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God’s invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.”
If you are unable to gather our Wednesday mornings during Lent, please watch the Forgiven series through the free program FORMED.  Each of these clips take 30 minutes which is much quicker than television or sports during Lent.  This may offer you some powerful encouragement to grow or even come back to confession.
We are also finishing the last details for our 40 hours for Eucharistic Adoration weekend—March 31st-April 2nd.  Keep following the information through the bulletin.
Keep focusing your spiritual life during these 40 days of Lent!

God Bless!
