LENTEN SOUP SUPPER
SATURDAY, MARCH 30 at 5:30 P.M. in Brick Building
Come join the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Nativity B.V.M. as we prepare a simple soup supper of local home-made soups. It is a long-standing tradition of the church to have a Poor Man’s Supper in Lent, consisting of soup, bread and butter. This simple meal is to remind us of the many gifts from God and for us to offer a sacrifice to Him in Thanksgiving. Optional Donation to support the Society’s work in our Media area is greatly appreciated.
Recognition of the Right of Christian Communities
Let us pray that Christian communities, especially those who are persecuted, feel that they are close to Christ and have their rights respected. Pope Francis – March 2019
It might be hard for us to believe, but there are more martyrs today than in the first centuries. They are persecuted because they speak the truth and proclaim Jesus Christ to this society. This happens particularly where religious freedom is not yet guaranteed.
However, it also happens in countries where, in theory and on paper, they protect freedom and human rights. Let us pray that Christian communities, especially those who are persecuted, feel that they are close to Christ and have their rights respected.
