The Season of Lent

Spring 2019


     As we continue our Lenten walk towards Easter, there are a few happenings that should give us strength, especially during these turblant times.  The first is that on Friday, March 29th, the movie Unplanned is hitting theaters across the country.  Unplanned is the moving story of Abby Johnson, a former employee of Planned Parenthood, who after working for eight years as a clinic director, was one day horrified by what she saw when she was asked to assist during an ultrasound guided abortion.  She finally realized that abortion is not a product or service but the taking of an innocent human life.  This set her whole life on a new course as she left her work and began advocating for the unborn. It is at once the story of a life-changing conversion and the hard hitting confrontation of the lie that human life is a medical condition to be "treated."  If you want to know more about Abby Johnson, check out her website here and make sure to head to the theater for what is to be a poweful film on the meaning and value of life.  Check out the film's webpage for movie times and listings.
     Next month, our Diocese will be blessed to host the Relic of the  incorrupt heart of St. John Marie Vianney, Patron Saint of Priests.  Sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, the relic of this holy priest from Ars, France is traveling all over the United States in order for the people of God to venerate and pray.  The relic will be brought to St. Joseph Cathedral in Manchester, New Hampshire on Wednesday, April 24th from 8AM to 1PM.  A special Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Libasci at 12:10PM.  Click on the above web banner to find out more about St. John Vianney and the relic of his heart.  If you would like to carpool with parishioners from St. Patrick Parish, transportation will be provided, leaving from Assumption Hall at 9:30AM and returning at 2PM.  Click on the REGISTER NOW button below to register for transportation.  It is important that we know how many will be riding with the parish.  Holy Cards of the above image of St. John Vianney will also be made available in April for you to bring and touch to the relic of his heart so that you will have a third class relic of this powerful saint!
