LENTEN AND EASTER TRADITIONS
The Marriage and Family Life Office has revised and expanded their booklet of prayers, rituals, ideas and activities for the Lent and Easter seasons. “Lenten and Easter Traditions: Keeping the Seasons Holy” is a valuable tool in making the celebration of these liturgical seasons more meaningful. This booklet contains suggestions to bring the family together in sharing the sacredness of the liturgical seasons of Lent through Pentecost, and provides historical and theological explanations, as well. It is available by contacting the office at 614/241-2560 or emailing FLOMailbox@colsdioc.org. The price is $5.00 a copy, which includes the cost of postage.
A CELEBRATION of LIFE
St. Ladislas Parish invites you to join them for a celebration of life on Sunday, March 6th at 4:00 p.m. at the parish. There will be contemporary Christian praise and worship led by the band, Rod & Staff. Bring your family and friends, and in addition to the music and worship you can celebrate Father Rod’s birthday. Refreshments will follow.
