THE SEASON OF LENT

Lent is a time of personal renewal.  We are invited to look at our lives and to take stock: what is going well and what needs attention and adjustment?   The Church offers us useful helps: in the readings from scripture at Mass each day, in encouraging us to devote more time to personal prayer, to make some sacrifice as a sign of repentance and sorrow for sin, and to be more aware of people who are suffering and in need and to help them in some practical way. This is summed up as Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving.

St. Joseph’s will help you with your Lenten journey.  This is most evident in the Lenten Project that gives each one of us the opportunity to help people who are suffering and in need. This year we have chosen to help the suffering victims of the terrible earthquake that rocked Turkey and North West  Syria on February 6 last.  We often feel helpless when confronted with such catastrophic tragedies and don’t know how to respond.  Through the Lenten Project each one of us has the chance to do something practical and useful to alleviate some of the suffering.  Through l’Oeuvre d’Orient our contributions will reach people who need food, clothes, tents and other forms of shelter. Our contributions combined with those of others will make a real difference to the lives of many people.

We will also provide an opportunity for you to pray the Stations of the Cross every Friday evening after the 7.30 pm Mass.  This form of prayer is a wonderful way of uniting ourselves with Jesus in his last hours as he willingly laid down his life for love of us.  We can grow in love of Jesus and learn from him how to give ourselves for the good of others. 

We are also encouraged to fast a little every Friday during Lent by abstaining from meat and making some other little sacrifices.

We wish you all a very fruitful Lent.
