First Sunday of Lent

Spring Break is almost here, but before we can take a week off for some much-needed quiet and relaxation, we have a variety of thought-provoking talks and opportunities to come together as a community for prayer and food.  We’ll learn about Salvation History at Sunday Catechesis; we’ll join Catholic Young Adults for this month’s Holy Grounds, which will address the challenges of being a cradle Catholic; we’ll carpool to Broken Arrow to hear Rwandan genocide survivor Immaculée Ilibagiza share her incredible story; and we’ll listen to a FOCUS team director speak about his experiences during Lent before enjoying an Indian feast from one of our favorite restaurants.  Check out the bulletin for all the information: Bulletin-2014-03-09

Second Sunday of Lent (March 16, 2014):

MT 17:1-9

Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother,
and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them;
his face shone like the sun
and his clothes became white as light.
And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them,
conversing with him.
Then Peter said to Jesus in reply,
“Lord, it is good that we are here.
If you wish, I will make three tents here,
one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
While he was still speaking, behold,
a bright cloud cast a shadow over them,
then from the cloud came a voice that said,
“This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased;
listen to him.”
When the disciples heard this, they fell prostrate
and were very much afraid.
But Jesus came and touched them, saying,
“Rise, and do not be afraid.”
And when the disciples raised their eyes,
they saw no one else but Jesus alone.

As they were coming down from the mountain,
Jesus charged them,
“Do not tell the vision to anyone
until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.”
