We are teaming up with Our Lady of the Assumption Parish here in Fairfield to bring the Little Sisters of the Lamb (http://bit.ly/2GP3TTa) who will lead us in prayer and reflection throughout the week. The Little Sisters will be with us for the first part of the week, and at Assumption for the final part of the week. See the attached insert for details. Lenten Mission Insert

LENTEN JOURNEY IN DAILY LITURGY: 2nd WEEK
The first three full weeks of Lent form a liturgical unit. In each Mass a basic teaching on the spiritual life is presented for our meditation. The Gospels teach that as followers of Christ we must actually see Christ in others; pray sincerely; forgive others; repent of our sinfulness; ask God for what we need; reconcile with others; be as merciful (compassionate) as God is; beware of hypocrisy in religious life. Wednesday of the Second Week of Lent, (four weeks before Spy Wednesday,) teaches a helpful lesson on humility and points towards Jerusalem and the suffering ahead. Thursday teaches that we must put our trust in God, not in this world. Friday’s Lenten Mass is dominated by thoughts of suffering and death. Saturday teaches the merciful forgiveness of God: in spite of our many sins against him, God remains our forgiving heavenly Father (parable of the Prodigal Son.)

Welcome to St. Pius
We, the members of St. Pius X Parish, are a Roman Catholic family of faith rooted in the Eucharist, nourished by God’s Word and faithful to the sacramental life of the Church. We are committed to welcoming every person we encounter with the love and mercy of Christ. We strive to imitate Christ in all that we say and do. We are committed to teaching and sharing the Gospel, to supporting one another in prayer and action, and to reaching out to those in need, so that, as a community of disciples, we can embrace our parish patron’s call to “restore all things in Christ.”
