“Broken For All:” A Lenten Mission with Sister Julia Walsh, FSPA

The Family of Five Parishes will be hosting at three-night Lenten Mission on Monday, February 26, Tuesday, February 27 and Wednesday, February 28 at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm each night. Simultaneous translation will be available in Spanish. We will also offer a daytime option on Tuesday, February 27.

Eucharistic living is communal life. Guided by Sister Julia Walsh, Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration and author of “For Love of the Broken Body,” we will gather with other members of the Family of Five Parishes to reflect on being Eucharistic people. As a prayerful community, we will reflect on how we are meant to be blessed, broken and shared as members of the Body of Christ. Opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Monday), Adoration (Tuesday), and fellowship (Wednesday) will be included. Each gathering will offer opportunities for participants to consider how they can offer their brokenness for the sake of the common good.

Admission is free

The Christian Women Society invites you to experience this Italian tradition through which Three Holy Women Parish honors St. Joseph. The intent of this communal celebration is to help those in need.

Legend tells us that during a time of drought and famine in Sicily, people prayed to St. Joseph for his intercession. When the rains came, crops were planted, and people were able to rise up and thrive again. From their crops, they prepared a grand feast and, with their neighbors in need, they feasted together in thanksgiving to St. Joseph.

In keeping with this Italian tradition, the parish prepares a table or altar, a display of food and faith celebrating St. Joseph on his March 19 feast day. Occurring during Lent, this beautifully adorned table is filled with donated meatless dishes, traditional foods, sculpted breads and sweets. After a blessing, the food is sold to attendees. Participants receive a complimentary bread roll and a bowl of pasta con sarde, a favorite Lenten pasta with fish sauce, also served without the fish sauce. A specially prepared cake is cut and shared with those present. A raffle is held with a wonderful variety of prizes, including restaurant certificates, tickets to sporting events, gift baskets and cash prizes! Proceeds from the food sales, raffle and free will offerings are donated to the parish’s social justice ministry, as well as other organizations or projects in the community that provide services to people needing help. Admission is free.

If you wish to donate…
Food items may be dropped off at St. Rita’s on Saturday, March 16 before 1:00 pm or Sunday morning before the 10:30 am Mass. Monetary donations are also welcomed.
