Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I want to encourage all of you to consider attending Catholic Men and Women’s Conferences that will be happening in our diocese this month. The Catholic Women’s Conference is Saturday, February 17th, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., while the Men’s Conference is Saturday, February 24th, from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Both conferences occur at the Ohio Expo Center, Cardinal Hall, on the site of the Ohio State Fairgrounds. Both conferences will include nationally known speakers, Mass and confessions and Catholic exhibits. This is a great way to get you excited about your faith, as we enter the season of Lent. I hope you will consider attending. Please see the bulletin for more information.
If you are interested in bringing Holy Communion to the sick, elderly or shut-in parishioners of St. John the Baptist or Sacred Heart parishes on a regular basis, please call me at the office or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Beginning on February 5th, I will be starting a weekday Mass, on Monday evenings at 5:30 p.m., at St. John the Baptist. If you are in the area at the time of the Mass, please think about joining us. Please let other persons know who might be interested in going to evening Mass during the week.
Have a Blessed week!
Sacred Heart and St. John the Baptist
