Class on American Saints

One powerful way to accept the challenge to work on our relationship with God is to learn how the saints answered that challenge in their lives. On Thursday, March 28 from 7-8pm, Fr.

Lent 2019

A WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR – LENT!
Lent is 6 week long retreat for us as individuals and as a Church.  It is an opportunity to come closer to God through acts of prayer, self-sacrifice and forgiveness.  Lent is a time to draw closer to Christ as walk with him on his journey to the Last Supper, the Cross, the Burial and Resurrection.  It is truly a wonderful time of the year to grow closer to our Savior!

LENTEN OPPORTUNITIES AT ST. ELIZABETH’S

Daily Mass
During Lent we will have daily Mass on Monday at 5:15pm and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday at 8:00am.  Daily Mass only lasts about 20 minutes, but is a wonderful time to hear Lenten bible readings, reflect on them, pray about them, and receive the Eucharist.  Trying to attend daily Mass at least once a week during the season of Lent is a good way to commit ourselves to more prayer time during Lent.

Short Spiritual Reflection - Fr. Keith will send out an e-mail every week during Lent with a short spiritual reflection.  If you are not receiving these e-mails, and would like to, please send your e-mail address to Fr. Keith at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Stations of the Cross and Lenten Meal
Every Friday evening during Lent at 6:00pm we gather in the church to pray the Stations of the Cross.  This prayer allows us to reflect on the last moments of Jesus life on earth and what he was willing to suffer out of love for us.  This is an opportunity for people of all ages to come together and remember that Christ died for all of us.  Stations of Cross is followed by a simple Lenten meal in our parish hall.

Confession
Confessions will be heard every Wednesday evening at St. Elizabeth’s from 5:15pm-5:45pm.  We will have Communal Confessions: Sunday, April 14 at 3:30pm at St. Mary’s Parish.  Monday, April 15 at 7:00pm at Sacred Heart Parish, and Wednesday, April 17 at 7:00pm at St. Elizabeth’s Parish.

Class on American Saints
During Lent we are called to work on our relationship with God, to grow in holiness. One powerful way to accept the challenge to work on our relationship with God is to learn how the saints answered that challenge in their lives. On Thursday, March 28 from 7-8pm, Fr. Keith will teach a class on U.S. American Saints. All adults of high school age and older are welcome to attend. 

Rice Bowl
Catholic Relief Services asks us to join in their efforts to feed the poor and starving of the world.  Rice Bowls can be picked up in our Mezzanine area.  Every day we then refrain from consuming a particular food item (a dessert, a can of pop, a cup of coffee, a candy bar, etc.) and then place in the rice bowl the money we would have spent on that item.  On Holy Thursday, we will collect the Rice Bowls and send the money to Catholic Relief Services to help feed those in our world who are starving.

Lenten Reflection Materials 
There are two booklets in the mezzanine area that will help you deepen your prayer and reflection time during Lent. Please take one or both of these to help you on your Lenten journey this year.

Holy Week at St. Elizabeth’s
April 13/14 we will have Masses for Palm Sunday to remember the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.  On Holy Thursday, April 18, we will celebrate the Mass of the Last Supper at 7:00pm with Adoration until 10:00pm.  Good Friday, April 19, services are at 12:10 and 7:00pm.  Easter Vigil Mass is Saturday, April 20, at 8:00pm.  Easter Morning, April 21, Masses are at 8:30 and 10:30am.

Abstinence from Meat
On Ash Wednesday and Fridays during Lent it is tradition to abstain from meat.  This simple act of penance is a small reminder of the suffering of Christ. It also reminds us that there are many people in the world who do not have the luxury of eating meat on a regular basis.  This simple Lenten tradition unites us with the suffering of Christ and the suffering of the poor.

Fasting
On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, we are also asked to Fast.  This means only eating one regular sized meal and two smaller meals when put together might come close to a regular sized meal.  Fasting is another powerful way of uniting us to the suffering Christ and the suffering of the poor.  Even though everyone is invited to participate in this, all Catholics between ages of 18 and 60 are asked to follow this fast.

Other Lenten Activity Ideas

1) Read the bible readings from daily Mass at www.usccb.org/bible/readings

2) Pick one of the gospels and read a chapter every day during Lent.

3) Read a spiritual book during Lent…there are many great spiritual authors to choose from!

4) Do an act of kindness for someone every day.  If possible, do this act without them knowing it was you who did it.

5) Spend an extra 5 minutes every day in prayer.  Consider trying a new way to pray.

6) As a family, do an act of service every week for someone you know.

7) Write a letter to someone in your past who helped you grow spiritually.
