Prayer of the Day

O taste and see that the Lord is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him! Psalm 34:8, RSV

Dear Father in heaven, we come to you. With thanks we come to you, for again and again you have helped us. Again and again you have let your light shine out on us so that we could be glad and know that our lives are in your hands. Protect us on this earth, where it is so necessary. Protect us, that the light of true life may shine more and more brightly and we may praise your name with our whole heart. Be with us this night, O God, and touch our hearts with your Spirit. Amen.

Saint of the Day

According to tradition, St. David was the son of King Sant of South Wales and St. Non. He was ordained a priest and later studied under St. Paulinus. Later, he was involved in missionary work and founded a number of monasteries. The monastery he founded at Menevia in Southwestern Wales was noted for extreme asceticism. David and his monks drank neither wine nor beer - only water - while putting in a full day of heavy manual labor and intense study. Around the year 550, David attended a synod at ...

What are the Three Pillars of Lent?

 Prayer—Almighty and ever living God, you invite us deeper into your world, your people, your Lent. May this time be one of outward focus; ... Help us live a Lent focused on freedom, generosity, and encounter.

Fasting- there are only two days of the year that Latin Rite Catholics are required to fast (over 90 percent of Catholics are Latin, or Roman Rite. If you’re not sure, then you are Latin Rite). One is Ash Wednesday and the other is Good Friday. In fact, both days are days of fasting and abstinence.

Almsgiving— is really just another name for charitable giving. Alms comes from a word that means pity, while charity comes from the Latin word “caritas”, that means love. That’s why some translations of 1 Corinthians 13:13 it reads “faith, hope, and charity.” Giving to charity is showing caritas, love, for our neighbor just as Jesus told us to. St Francis of Assisi said, “in giving we receive.” Let’s makes sure we do it all with the proper motives and remember the admonishment that Jesus gave concerning praying, Almsgiving, and fasting in Matthew chapter 6: don’t do it for the praises of men, do it for Go

Tips for Making the Season of Lent More Meaningful

  •  Slow Down - Set aside 10 minutes a day for silent prayer or meditation. It will revitalize your body and your spirit.
  • Read a good book - You could choose the life of a saint, a spiritual how-to, an inspirational book or one of the pope's new books.
  • Be kind - Go out of your way to do something nice for someone else every day.
  • Get involved - Attend a Lenten lecture or spiritual program.
  • Volunteer at your parish - Whether it's the parish fish fry or cleaning the church.
  • Reach out - Invite an inactive Catholic to come with you to receive ashes on Ash Wednesday.
  • Pray - Especially for people you don't like and for people who don't like you.
  • Tune out - Turn off the television and spend quality time talking with family members or friends.
  • Clean out closets - Donate gently used items to the Parish Thrift Shop or other local agencies.

Devotion to St. Teresa of Avila

Beginning the Monday after Ash Wednesday, Feb. 22nd, and every Monday after the 8:30 AM Mass we will have a special devotion to St. Teresa of Avila, the patroness of our Church. The Litany of St. Teresa and other prayers through her intercession and reading our petitions will be part of this devotion. There will be a box in the Narthex for you to write or type your intentions and prayers on paper. We would like to invite all our parishioners to participate in this spiritual exercises.

 

Month of February is dedicated to the Holy Family

The special devotion which proposes the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph as the model of virtue of all Christian households began in the 17th century. It started almost simultaneously in Canada and France: the Association of the Holy Family was founded in Montreal in 1663, and by the Daughters of the Holy Family in Paris in 1674. This devotion soon spread and in 1893 Leo XIII expressed his approval of a feast under this title and himself composed part of the Office. On account of the flight into Egypt this feast has been observed by the Copts from early times. The feast was welcomed by succeeding Pontiffs as an efficacious means for bringing home to the Christian people the example of the Holy Family at Nazareth, and by the restoration of the true spirit of family life, stemming, in some measure, the evils of present-day society.

Our next altar server training sessions will be on the following Sundays after the 11:30 masses.

Catching up During Covid

Since many parishioners have recently returned to Mass and with all the safety precautions we are taking, some may not have seen the Bulletin , where it is available on-line on the St. Teresa
website. So to catch up:
  • The Bishop has asked that we please wear a mask in church, Many volunteers are cleaning the pews after Mass as an extra step for your safety.
  • Due to Covid, many programs are on-hold or canceled right now.
As restrictions are lifted, we will notify parishioners of any upcoming events. We can only pray that the threat of this virus lessens over time. Please remember, the Bulletin and other items of interest can always be found on the St Teresa website.

Needing Your Help

We are in need of volunteers to help disinfect the pews after each Mass on Sunday. Your support is needed to keep our community safe. We are in need of many hands to make the work light for all. If you are willing to help in this ministry please contact Sr. Yvonne at the church office - 321-268-3441,
