“For through Christ we both have ACCESS in one Spirit to the Father.” Ephesians 2:18 Although our lenten journeys may be challenging, we must remember that our loving God has given us ACCESS to His love, mercy, and strength. May we seek this ACCESS to God’s power constantly, knowing that only in Him can we accomplish the work of renewal in ourselves and the world. This Wednesday, March 23rd at 7pm, we will celebrate the communal Lenten Penance Service. God will give us ACCESS to his mercy and renewing grace in the sacrament of confession. All are invited.
