Our parish’s Lenten Mission will be held from Monday, March 5 through Wednesday, March 7 at Immaculate Conception Church:
7:00 - 8:30 PM and will focus on The Living Word of God: Studied, Prayed, and Lived.
Each night, we will have a different presenter cover the topics below:
|Monday, March 5||The Living Word of God: Studied and Prayed|
The living Word of God comes to us “wrapped” in the language, culture and history of those
who handed over their experiences to us. Through study and prayer, the Holy Spirit helps us to
“unwrap” the living Word of God so that we can understand and follow it in our own time,
in our own lives.
|Fr. James Villa, OFM
|Tuesday, March 6||The Living Word of God: Lived in the Divine Office
and the Holy Face|
The Rule of St. Benedict continually reminds us that our life is a
God-centered life; that the whole of our monastic life ought to be directed towards seeking His Holy Face.
For this purpose, several times each day we gather together for the Divine Office (Opus Dei).
“So that God may be glorified in all things” (Ut in Omnibus Glorificetur Deus)
Dom Bernard Schinn, OSB
|Wednesday, March 7||The Living Word of God: In the Stories of Our Lives|
What are the stories of how the Word of God has come alive in your life? Sometimes they are so obvious,
we don’t even recognize them.
|Monsignor Joseph Martin
