Finding Time for You and Jesus!
This is a 4 part virtual series of opportunities that take very little time.
It is self-paced but we will guide you along the way in finding peace and rest, taking a risk, and joyfully celebrating our Lord and Savior.
Many of us live very busy lives, but if you can find 5,10, or 15 minutes in your day - you can participate.
(While you are waiting in your car to pick up your kids, before you get out of bed in the morning, right before you go to bed, in the waiting room at an appointment - really ANYWHERE you find yourself with a little bit of time.)
You do NOT need to participate in all four parts...
However, it is highly recommended and definitely worthwhile!
December 25th - January 9th
Part 1 begins December 25th and ends January 9th. (Christmas continues during these 12 days.) We celebrate the amount of time it took after the birth of Jesus for the magi to travel to Bethlehem for the Epiphany when they recognized him as the son of God. We will be doing a silent prayer experience with the Hallow app. This requires 5 minutes each day for you to sit quietly - listen, pray, ask or thank God for whatever is on your heart. This is a great way to prepare for Lent.
January 10th - January 24th
January 25th - February 21st
Part 2 starts on January 25th and is a 28 day Spiritual Exercise with St. Ignatius. This is also on the Hallow App and takes about 15 minutes each day. This exercise is a great opportunity to learn how to contemplate scripture. You may even find journaling and reflecting beneficial.
February 22nd - April 8th
Part 3 starts February 22nd (Ash Wednesday). During the 40 days of Lent you will follow along with our Parish Lenten Booklet that is offered to each parish member. You will read the daily scripture every day and a reflection written by a parish member. This will take 10-20 minutes per day - depending on how much time you want to dedicate.

Finally, Part 4 begins on Easter, April 9th and will continue for 8 weeks, ending on Pentecost. We will be reading the book Holy Moments that was gifted to the parish during Advent. There is a multitude of dates/times for discussion meetings and each group will range from 4-10 people in each group
