Upcoming Events

LENTEN ANNOUNCEMENTS: The great season of Lent begins this Wednesday. Ashes will be blessed and distributed at all the masses – Baileyville: 8:30a.m & 7:30pm.; St. Benedict: 6:00p.m.   As a way of helping to make our Lent more of what it is supposed to be, I want to encourage you to take part in the opportunities for spiritual growth that we will have dur-ing Lent, viz.:   Mass during the week,   Stations of the Cross , Lenten weekly confessions: (St. Benedict: Wednesdays 7:30-8:00pm; Baileyville: Fridays 7:30-8:00pm) Lenten Penance Services in the region (Schedule will be published shortly)  Alms-giving and personal prayer. I strongly encourage you to read Matthew Kelly’s book, “Perfectly Yourself” provided by the parish free of cost. It’s a great way to prepare for the Holy Week and Easter. Copies are located at the back of the church.  I also encourage you to  participate in our ‘Operation Rice-Bowl’ activity. Your Lenten sacrifices, however small they might be, will help the needy over 100 countries through Cath-olic Relief Services.
