Dear St. John Parish Family and larger Catholic
It is hard to believe that Lent is already here. We are called to
grow closer to Jesus and allow him to transform our lives so that
our parish, community, and world is transformed. Thanks to generous
donors all families received a copy of "Rediscover Jesus" at
Christmas. It is a simple and wonderful book which helps us to
better encounter him each day through stories, reflections,
Scripture, and prayer. Please join me in reading and praying with
one chapter each day during Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday. Each
short chapter should take less than 10 minutes to read and pray
with. Also, please join me in signing up for Dynamic Catholic’s
Best Lent Ever email video series, which will correspond daily
with each chapter of Rediscover Jesus. All you need to do is
sign up at
We can all as a family have a shared experience of encountering and
rediscovering Jesus this Lent so he can better transform us to
follow him and encourage one another as disciples. Please join me
and let’s allow Jesus to touch and change our minds and hearts so we
can better follow him and share him with others.
Coming Up At St.
