PARISH LENTEN MISSION 2018: "THE MIRACLES OF CHRIST"
Conference V, Friday, March 23, 2018 A.D.

“When Mary [the sister of Lazarus] therefore was come where Jesus was, seeing Him, she fell down at His feet and saith to Him: Lord, if Thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. Jesus, therefore, when He saw her weeping, and the Jews that were come with her weeping, groaned in the spirit and troubled Himself. And said: Where have you laid him? They say to Him: Lord, come and see. And Jesus wept. The Jews therefore said: Behold how He loved him. But some of them said: Could not He that opened the eyes of the man born blind have caused that this man should not die? Jesus therefore again groaning in Himself, cometh to the sepulchre. Now it was a cave: and a stone was laid over it. Jesus saith: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith to Him: Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he is now of four days. Jesus saith to her: Did not I say to thee that if thou believe, thou shalt see the glory of God? They took therefore the stone away. And Jesus lifting up His eyes said: Father, I give Thee thanks that Thou hast heard Me. And I knew that Thou hearest Me always: but because of the people who stand about I have said it, that they may believe that Thou hast sent Me. When He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice; Lazarus, come forth. And presently he that had been dead came forth, bound feet and hands with winding bands. And his face was bound with a napkin. Jesus said to them: Loose him and let him go. Many therefore of the Jews who were come to Mary and Martha and had seen the things that Jesus did, believed in Him. But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them the things that Jesus had done.”–John 11:32-46

Parish Mission Statement

"What then is a parish? It is the smallest section of the one universal flock which has been entrusted to Peter by the Lord. Under the authority of a responsible priest who has received the care of souls from his bishop, the parish is, within the Church of Jesus Christ, the first community of Christian life; it is a community cut to human dimensions, in which the shepherd can know his flock and the flock can know their shepherd. At the heart of this area, we find the parish church with its bell-tower, its baptistery, its confessional, its altar and tabernacle, a symbol of unity and the centre of community life." - Blessed Pope Paul VI, reigned 1964-1978
