This Sunday is the Third Sunday of Lent. Fr. Garry Richmeier shares his reflection. Please see attached 3rd Sunday of Lent Bulletin.

May we invite those who can attend the Sunday Mass in-person to join us in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist in St. James KC. Fr. Garry Richmeier will be our celebrant.
