St. Stephen Cathedral Mass
Blessed Sacrament Chapel Mass
Published on March 28th, 2014
I. Spring Break and Holy Week do not coincide this year! You can return from Spring break, April 4-14, just in time for the most important, most solemn days of the liturgical year. The Triduum (literally, three days) is really one mystery celebrated over a three day period. Will you choose to walk these three most important days of the whole church year for us Catholic Christians?
II. Way of the Cross Concert: Pray the Stations of the Cross like you have never before. Each meditation on the fourteen stations is in song and video form. Share this intimate walk with Jesus to His death on the cross. This video/concert experience, lead by the contemporary Catholic musician and singer, Donna Cori Gibson, calls us to conversion, which strikes at the heart of this Lenten season. Join us on Sunday, March 30, at 6:30PM, at St. Stephen Cathedral for this free concert!
III. Rice Bowl for Lent, for Life: Through CRS (Catholic Relief Society), you are helping those in need both around the world and in our own community (75% of your donation to CRS Rice Bowl supports Catholic Relief Services’ programs around the world; 25% supports local hunger and poverty alleviation efforts in our Owensboro Diocese). CRS is the INTERNATIONAL outreach arm of the Catholic Church in helping the needy. Catholic Charities is the NATIONAL outreach arm of the Catholic Church and helps those in our own country. If you have not done so, pick up a Rice Bowl at the door of the church. Look up www.crsricebowl.org for more information.
IV. Gratitude to Bishop Medley! What a delight to welcome our bishop to St. Stephen Cathedral for three of the four Masses last weekend. We are eager to find opportunities to invite Bishop Medley to his/our Cathedral Church! He challenged us to use effectively the next 30 days leading up to Easter, the renewal of our baptismal promises. Jesus is the Living Water yearning to bubble up within us to create ourselves anew.
In Joy and Hope,
