Saturday, March 25th – Sunday, April 2nd

Click here to download this weekend’s bulletin.    In many parishes those preparing for initiation into the Catholic Church – Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist – at the Easter Vigil, will experience the first of three Scrutinies today. Scrutinies are “… rites for self-searching and repentance and have above all a spiritual purpose … meant to uncover, and then heal all that is weak, defective, or sinful in the hearts of the elect; to bring out, then strengthen all that is upright, strong, and good.” All of us can benefit from ‘self-searching and repentance.’ Look at the Samaritan woman in today’s Gospel. Her conversation with Jesus put her on the ‘fast track’ to selfsearching and repentance. Her conversation with Jesus transformed her into a great evangelizer: “Many of the Samaritans of that town began to believe in him because of the word of the woman who testified, ‘Come see a man who told me everything I have done. Could he possibly be the Christ?’” This week, share what God has done for you with someone. Invite someone to Come see.
