Lenten Newsletter of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish

As we walk in truth and justice this year, we celebrate Ash Wednesday on February 14.   Lent begins and we realize that we are not always so sure-footed.  We stumble and fall and search for “the hand of the One who will restore our footing to solid ground.  We encounter grace, healing, love, and mercy along the way.” 

Please join us for services on Ash Wednesday and Pizza with the Pastor on February 16 at 6:30 PM in the school cafeteria.  Father Damian will pray the Stations of the Cross with families and lead us in a presentation about Lent, Triduum, and Easter.  We look forward to seeing you there.
