This year Earth Day falls on Good Friday. During our Penitential Service, we will examine our consciences about how we may have contributed to the suffering of God’s Creation. We will reflect upon our answer today to Jesus’ question, “Who is your neighbor?” We have an opportunity to repent of our environmental sins, ones we have been considering during the course of reading our weekly Lent 4.5 pamphlets. We will praise God’s abundant mercy.
Join us on Sunday, February 27, at 3:00 p.m. for “Franciscan Spirituality: Contributions of the Franciscans to the Life of the Church,” a lecture by Most Rev. Dennis Corriveau, O.F.M. Cap., Bishop of Nelson, BC. The presentation will be followed by Sunday Eucharist and a reception.
