On July 1, 2014 the parishes of St John the Evangelist, St Joseph and St Norbert merged and formed the new faith community of St Jude Thaddeus Parish. All are welcome in this place to live their baptismal promise, worship together in community and serve the Lord.
God of mercy,
You have given us this special time to reflect on our lives, believe in the Good News and draw closer to You.
May this season of Lent help us be good stewards of this time: to fast and pray, be more generous and show others how to live in Christ.
Let us see each day of this season as a new opportunity to renew our lives and gain a deeper appreciation of Your active presence in us and our community of faith.
Give us the grace to see Your face in others, especially the poor and those who suffer. And through your Spirit, enkindle in us the fire of Your love so that we may be better stewards of Your redeeming work throughout the world.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son.
