It seems to me that we just finished Christmas and here we are at the cusp of Lent.  This Wednesday, February 14th, is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten Season.
With Lent upon us, we need to seriously think about our Lenten plan for growing in our faith.  What will I be giving up for Lent?  What will I be adding for Lent?  Each one of us should be doing both, that is doing something sacrificial as well as adding something to our routine.
There are many possibilities in both areas.  However, whatever we add and whatever we give up have to be sensible and realistic things that we can actually do during the Lenten Season.  For example, we may be enthusiastic and say, “I will go to Mass every weekday in Lent.”  That is certainly a wonderful thing to do.  However, we have to look at our schedule and our commitments to discover whether this is reasonable and doable.  Once we have done this, we can then make a realistic commitment to this Lenten action.
I would encourage all of us to strive to participate in Mass, Stations of the Cross, Lenten Soup and Salad, Friday Lenten meal, Exposition on Tuesdays and First Friday.  Certainly all of us should make every effort to attend the various services of Holy Week beginning with Palm Sunday and culminating with the great Feast of Easter.  You and I need to make this Lenten Season the best ever.
As Lent is about to begin, let us resolve to use this Lent to the best of our ability and to be better disciples of Jesus Christ.

Have a great Bethany Beach week!

In the fall of 2018 our parish will provide everyone an opportunity to sign up for The Journey, a six-week process of sharing, prayer, and reflection that can help everyone—active parishioner or not—grow in faith.

The Journey brings us into contact with those who knew and encountered Jesus.  Through videos and sharing, their experience becomes real in our day . . . in our personal lives . . . in our relationships with God and others.

We hope that many parishioners will sign up and help our parish grow in faith—so that more of our parishioners see themselves as followers of Jesus.
