Christmas is barely over and we are talking about Lent? Only because busy calendars need to make space early on for things that are important. The First Sunday of Lent is February 26th and we will begin our Lenten Mission, this year with Brian Casey as our guest presenter. Brian will be here for all the Masses that weekend and will do the mission from each evening from Sunday through Wednesday, February 26-29th from 7:00-9:00 PM. Brian is a national speaker with a warm personality and a clear message that is easy to understand for all ages. Please mark your calendars so you don’t miss this opportunity to learn. Childcare will be available for little children.

Remember when Camille Pauley was here last fall and gave a reflection at Mass on the right to life? Her message was so powerful and profound that she literally changed perspectives and lives for many who heard her words. We are pleased to bring her back to St. Stephen’s for a women’s retreat day on Wednesday, March 14th from 10AM – 2PM. Lunch and childcare are provided and the cost is $20 person.
