Several members of our community recently entered their names into the Book of the Elect. This event marked their movement from being inquirers regarding the Christian faith and more specifically Catholicism to those who are moving closer to celebrating the Easter sacraments of baptism, confirmation, and the Eucharist. On the third, Fourth, and Fifth Sundays of Lent at the 11:30 am mass they will be celebrating the three Scrutinies. In fact at those three masses we will hear the A cycle of readings which include the Woman at the Well, the Man born blind, and the Raising of Lazarus from the Dead. At the other weekend masses we will focus in the B cycle readings. Through the symbols of water, light, and new life the elect are invited to reflect on anything that might come in the way of allowing the presence of Christ Jesus to break forth in their lives. May we hold them in prayer during this time. Not only will the usual Saturday evening Mass be livestreamed on these weekends but the 11:30 am mass as well.
Have a blessed Lent!
