“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.” (1 Peter 5:6)
Lent, A Season of Renewal
Pope Francis tells us that Lent is a new beginning, a path towards continual conversion of heart. We hope that you’ll join with us in this journey towards Easter by praying the Lenten Prayer for Spiritual Renewal as well as by reading the regularly updated Lenten Reflections below.
Fr. Bob’s Lenten Reflections
Palm Sunday – Dare to Believe
Jesus looked so weak on that hill that day He had no sword and no spear, not even one soldier on His side. All of the cards were stacked against Him
Fifth Week of Lent – Victory on Calvary
This is the last Sunday in Lent. Today we reflect upon the 40 days to repent, and believe in the Gospel. Lent will end in Holy Week.
Fourth Week of Lent – No Greater Love
One fact rings loud and clear from Calvary: where God's love is concerned, we mortals are ignorant and very uncomprehending.
Third Week of Lent – Focus on the Cross
The preface for the Mass at the start of Lent refers to this “Joyful Season.”
Second Week of Lent – God’s Plans for Us
During Lent, if we forget everything else in our relationship with God, we need to remember that we are called into an unbreakable covenant with the Divine.
First Week of Lent – What is Lent all about?
Only love makes Christ believable. Only love makes sense out of Lent, out of the passion and death of Christ.

Message of His Holiness Pope Francis for Lent 2023
Lent is a favourable time for personal and community renewal, as it leads us to the paschal mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Holy Thursday – Love One Another
We have so much in our liturgy. We commemorate the beginning of the priesthood. The days we celebrate are the holiest time for our church.
