Vatican Survey

In October, the 14th Ordinary Synod of Bishops will convene to discuss the topic of "The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and Contemporary World." In preparation for this, the Synod Fathers have asked the People of God to respond to a series of questions that will help inform their discussions and conclusions. Visit bit.ly/CDRsynod2015 to complete an online questionnaire comprising 22 short answer questions condensed from the original Lineamenta. The questionnaire must be completed by 8:30am on Monday, March 2. Responses may be anonymous and will be included in the final report that the Diocese of Richmond will send to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to be then compiled with other diocesan reports and sent to Rome. Visit CDR Center for Marriage and Family Life for more information on the Synod.



From The Pastor

It is a snowy Monday evening as I write this note for the bulletin.  By the time you read this letter Lent will have begun with the celebration of Ash Wednesday.  Lent is a season when we try to turn ourselves around – to repent!  That is what repent means – turn around.

At the start of our Church year, the First Sunday of Advent, we were encouraged to make resolutions in that season of repentance to use our time better.  How are you doing?  Now Lent comes along with its special grace to help us with our resolutions.  We use Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving to strengthen our resolve.  We remind ourselves of these three disciplines buy giving out the pretzels with their three circle created by the “crossing arms,” the bracelli. Abstaining from meat on Fridays is another reminder as is the practice of either giving up something or resolving to do something extra. 

I don’t know about you, but I find that there really is a grace to this season that gives me the “strength” to be better disciplined (a better learner!).  It also serves to prepare me and all of us for the Easter celebrations.  Let us join together to make this a really special Lent through commitment and support of each other and our community at St. Michael.

Peace & Love,
Fr. Dan
