Be a good STEWARD of the Lenten Season.
Ash Wednesday is a special day of devotion for Catholics. Churches are packed like no other day except Christmas and Easter. Even though the Church does not designate Ash Wednesday as a holy day of obligation, Catholics flock to receive ashes. Along with this outward sign of the beginning of a season of penitence, we embrace the call to conversion that Ash Wednesday heralds. Christian stewards will greet Lent with the best of intentions. But sometimes, we reach Easter disappointed in our own efforts. Download the Stewardship Bulletin for some suggestions for keeping us on task during this Lenten season:

Pray with Pope Francis
Special Intention during Lent 2016
"Dear Lord Jesus, during the Season of Lent, help us to take good care of your creation, the gift you have freely given. May we cultivate and protect it for future generations. We also pray for persecuted Christians throughout the world. May all Christians who, on account of their faith, are discrminated against or are being persecuted, remain strong and faithful to the Gospel, thanks to the unceasing prayer of the Church."

"Come, Holy Spirit, and visit your people in our great need. May Joseph Dutton, who lived in penitential solidarity with those yearning for a complete change of mind and heart in every time and place, intercede for us in our struggle, particularly for _________________. May his total submission to your purifying will in all things encourage us on our own way of conversion. May whatever virtue in him your Church deems heroic clear the way to sainthood for him, for the inspiration and consolation of many. Amen."
