Red Beans and RiceOur Church Family is invited to participate in a red beans and rice supper this

Tuesday evening, Feb. 16, after the 6:00pm Mass. This is traditionally known as Fat Tuesday, to eat all

you want and all you can before the Holy Season of Lent begins. The Knights will prepare the red beans

and rice and the church Family are to bring anything they wish except soft drinks. If you want to fix a

pancake I’ll bet Fr. Ruane gets to it first.


       Ash……  The Masses on Ash Wednesday        R.C.I.A.The RCIA will miss this week, members are

Wednesday will be at 8:00am and 6:00pm.         encouraged to come to Mass and the red beans and rice

  Holy     We begin the Holy Season of Lent this week on Ash Wednesday, it is a day of fast and

Season    abstinence [one full meal, two snacks]. The Friday’s of Lent are days of abstinence, with

  Of         the exception of Good Friday, which is a day of fast and abstinence. Traditionally just

 Lent      about every Catholic likes to begin the Holy Season of Lent by going to Mass.


Lent At  During the Holy Season of Lent we will have in addition to our regular daily Mass schedule,

St. PeterThe Way of the Cross, Holy Communion, and a short meditation followed by a light supper, probably soup and salad and fellowship. 


Youth Supper  We invite all of our young people grade 7th through 12th to join us next Sunday evening in

    And Talk        the Family Life Center for a pizza supper, a short presentation by Fr. Ruane and in general 

                                    fun for our young people to be together. 


Why Catholic?”… We hope that all or our groups have begun or are about to begin this very important session on the treatment of the Sacraments of our Church. With a little effort on our part this can be a very enriching experience.   


                    World       Congratulations to Ed and Rosemary Merriman who will be celebrating 65 years

                 Marriage      of marriage with the Bishop and several others this Sunday at St. Peter in Jackson.

                      Day           We pray God’s special Blessing on them on this very special occasion. 


Choose Life One long ago day at a Washington, D.C. Prayer Breakfast, a tiny nun proclaimed these words to those in high positions of power: “if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?” On that day, Mother Teresa of Calcutta captured the essence of love---respect for all human life.
