This Sunday is the Fifth Sunday of Lent. Joan DeMerchant shares her reflection. Please see attached 5th 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.
