My brothers and sisters, It’s hard to believe that Lent is almost here! This year I would like to invite all of you, both Sacred Heart parishioners and St. John the Baptist parishioners, to participate in a weekly Mass on Wednesday evenings at St. John the Baptist during the Season of Lent followed by a simple supper after the Mass. I have been told that according to tradition, parishioners would volunteer to prepare the simple supper usually consisting of soup, salad and bread, etc. Also traditionally the proceeds from these would go to charity. I would like to see that we help support local Catholic charities within our diocese as there are many soup kitchens and food pantries that are always in need of donations. Please remember that if we do not have volunteers to prepare the simple suppers we will not be able to have them, so please consider volunteering. Also, Fr. Klee will be offering Mass in the mornings at Sacred Heart during much of the Lenten Season. Please see the bulletin for further information. Have a great week! Fr. Tony Lonzo Associate Administrator of Sacred Heart and St. John the Baptist.
