Thank you and God Bless to everyone for your time, talent and treasure that helped us build two shelters for the homeless living at Paul's Project at Grace Campus. What a wonderful way to start the Lenten Season, giving shelter to someone who has none. The Father said, "Whatever you do to the least of my brothers, you do unto me." We did unto our Father. Thank you for being so generous. We plan to do two more in a couple of months. So plan to come be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
Youth Mass with the Youth Band, first and third Sundays of the month at 5:30 p.m. Please remember your area of commitment; arrive at least 20 minutes before Mass time. Come and sing your praises with Refuge. Praise and Worship starts at 5 p.m.
Minute Meditation: We should ask the Holy Spirit to give us eyes for heaven, freeing us from the visible desires of this life and preparing us for the invisible realities of the next. As we grow in understanding for the earthly and heavenly elements at work within the Mass, we will more fully trust in all we cannot see and grow in gratitude for all that we can.
