Saint Moms U Lenten Prayer Group

Moms — take a mini-retreat each Monday night during Lent and join the Saint Mom’s U prayer series – “Prayer, Christ’s Passion and Promise.” The group will meet from 7-9 in Room 2 in the Family and Youth Center. Through prayer, reading Christ’s Passion, insight from a saint, a short reflection piece, discussion and fellowship we can find ways in our busy lives to travel through this holy season with a humble focus on Christ’s sacrifice and the promise of the Resurrection.

The prayer group will meet beginning Mondays, Feb. 27 – April 2. If you need more info, call the parish office.

This is a great, thoughtful post from Simcha Fisher at the National Catholic Register. She’s always so thoughtful, and often so funny. This one is more thoughtful, but I know lots of moms/folks can relate.

When women read about other women’s lives, we tend to think, “Oh, I’m a failure  as a mother! All I do is hang around reading with my kids all day, when I ought  to be doing liturgical crafts!” or “My husband must be so disappointed with  me—those other woman are so beautiful and exciting, and all I do is cook and  clean!” And meanwhile the kids and husband in question are perfectly happy—it’s  only the mom who sees a problem.

Don’t Stop Believin

Tuesday is Saint Mom’s U at SJA! 7-9 pm.

We're all on the journey.

We’ll look a little more deeply at this beautiful gift of faith and ways to keep focused and growing as we travel our unique paths.

Hope to see you there.

We are pilgrims on a journey, we are trav’lers on the road.
We are here to help each other walk the mile and bear the load. (The Servant Song)

Do you really want to hurt me?

The next session of Saint Mom’s U is Tuesday, April 12 from 7-9 at SJA.

Nobody ever forgets where he buried the hatchet.

To do list:1) Bury Hatchet 2) Forget

— Kin Hubbard

We’ll talk sacrifice. We’ll talk forgiveness.

All sinners and saints are welcome to come. Bring a friend. 🙂

Teach us to Pray

This is an awesome post by Msgr. Charles Pope. It’s about organizing our prayer according to what Jesus taught us in the Our Father.

Watch this

Here’s a link to a kick-off video for Lent, but out yesterday by Archbishop Dolan of NY. If he hadn’t heard the call to priesthood, I’m sure he’d be a football or baseball coach somewhere. Go team! Love it.

Also, a little post I wrote a few days ago at fivehalos.wordpress.com. Lentamente.

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

We’re talking about evil tonight in our session: Hungry Like the Wolf. This session was postponed because of last month’s snow storm. I have to be honest, I was thoroughly bummed because I didn’t want to think about E V I L in depth for another month! The fact that is was postponed has been fruitful for me … let’s hope it’s fruitful for all those present. Hope to see you!
