Lent 2021 - Let Go and Follow Jesus

lent 2021Lent is not so much about what you give up as it is about who you become.  Our theme for Lent this year is “Let go and follow Jesus.”  We all have many things that we need to let go. From the stress and anxiety surrounding COVID-19, to the unrest in our country over the past year, to the many personal struggles we are facing in our lives. Let go and let Jesus lead you to a better place.

The “Little Black Book” will be available during Lent.  We will have them in the gathering space during Mass and in the outer lobby of the office building.  You can easily carry this little book around with you so try and read the short entry and pray with it every day.  Many people also find journaling very helpful, so if you have never tried it please do so this Lent.
