Last Saturday we had an impromptu First Communion for Giovanni Garcia. This involves issues with immigration. Please pray for a happy resolution. Thanks to the crowd who responded so generously to brightening this young child's day (see note below).
This week begins the season of Lent. Masses for Ash Wednesday are English with the school children; Latin Mass and English Mass.
A reminder that Feb. 21st is the Women's Conference. It is not too late to sign up. The Men's Conference is on the Feb. 28th. And again I hope many from the parish will sign up for these very worthwhile events.
Jump into Lent in the right spirit. Embrace the three pillars of Lent -- prayer, fasting and alms giving. God will never be outdone in generosity.
The Lord be with you!

I saw the first copy of my book. Undoubtedly libraries across the country will be asking for signed copies. They will have to wait. The first printing I reserved for the good people of St. Mary. Remember this book is a fundraiser for the school. I promise I will spend none of the profits on "Tuna Surprise".
Lent begins, so I hear. Our rules are different. I will eat meat on Fridays instead of fish. And I'll snack more on the kibbles than on the bits.
I just opened a belated Christmas gift, belated

On behalf of the Garcia Family, I would like to thank Father Lutz for the warm welcome he gave to Giovanni, and the entire Garcia Family on Saturday February 7th. Due to Father's understanding during a very difficult time for the Garcia Family, Giovanni was able to receive his First Holy Communion. Thank you so much Father!
Also we would like to thank the good people at the evening Mass, who through their overwhelming generosity, Giovanni was given approximately $300.00. The words of scripture come to mind when we think of your kindness to a total stranger: "See how these Christians love one another".
God bless you, Father Lutz and all the parishioners at St. Mary.
