With Blizzards – and Lent – Attitude is Everything, by Dr. John Romanowsky, Executive Director of the Department of Evangelization

Parish Table Talk:

Mid Atlantic CongressMAC is only 9 days away!  Have you planned which break out sessions you will attend?  Reserved lunch on Friday? Downloaded the MAC App?  We look forward to joining you and the over 1100 pastoral leaders who will be coming to Baltimore next week for our Congress!


Inter-generational Family Gatherings for the Year of Mercy:  We have created three family days that you can use as some of your inter-generational gatherings this year, one for Lent (based on the parables of mercy), one for ordinary time (based on the psalms of mercy) and one leading up to All Saints Day (based on the saints of mercy).  Let us know if these are useful resources for you.

We keep adding to our Year of Mercy resources on this website, included OSV’s 365 Days of Mercy and some wonderful videos, prayers and ideas from CRS.  You can sort the resources by clicking on the category and selecting “Year of Mercy”.

ACTS Men’s Retreat is being offered at St. Louis Parish February 11th to the 14th and is open to any who would like to attend.

Lent will soon be here!  Pope Francis has a wonderful Lenten message for us all, with his focus on Mary, and the history and works of mercy.  Concordia Publishers has a great video you can share with your families:
