Feast of Saint Simon
Greetings! The sun is shining across the bright, white snow. Itís February and definitely still winter. However, Iím writing the March newsletter, so Iím thinking about how soon we will be enjoying the warmer weather and I will be enjoying getting outside for walks in the fresh air that doesnít take my breath away.
This month I want to announce that the dates for the Spring Radiothon will be April 7 - 11. It will be the fifth week of Lent, ending just before Palm Sunday. We will be having parishes and schools participating again this year.
The joy of living in this world comes from living a life in Christ. Live joyfully, serving Christ through the evangelization of our friends, neighbors, and anyone we meet throughout the day. Do people know you are Catholic? Let them see your faith, proudly share your love of Christ and how He impels you to live.
We will soon begin Lent. We will have a little more than 40 days to devote our lives to focusing on how we can do more to live a holy life. We are called to greater prayer, fasting, and almsgiving during Lent. Each of these three Lenten pillars is to be offered in love and as a witness to our Catholic faith. Ash Wednesday is March 5. How will you come closer to Christ this Lent?
Covenant Network needs your support. Please donate to Catholic Radio. Your contributions help encourage people to live for Christ and to come to know the Church and the tremendous richness we partake of as Catholics. We want the world to partake in this unbelievable gift He has offered us. We need you to help us evangelize. Please prayerfully support Covenant Network with your donation. Donations are tax deductible.
May God bless you as we begin this Lenten journey. I will pray for you. Please keep Covenant Network in your prayers.
Sincerely in Christ,
