2018 LENTEN MISSION AT ST. MARY’S

March 5, 2018

March 2-4 St. Mary's 2018 Lenten Mission. Msgr. Michael Buyachok was the guest preacher for the Lenten Mission at Rossburn Pastoral District! He presented a message of who we are in our relation with God. "God is our way, our truth and our life!" Msgr. Michael stressed the fact that, our Heavenly Father is like the father of the Prodigal Son, who welcomed his son back, in the same way God is waiting to welcome us back.

On Sunday in his final message Msgr. Michael talked about the Exaltation of the Cross of Christ. The Holy Cross symbolizes protection and joy. The Holy Cross plays the major part in our liturgy and our prayers. The Cross is always here - in the sacraments, and in our lives. Msgr. Michael linked the cross to our body. We can easily form the cross with our bodily members and with this cross, we should always praise God and avoid sin.

He also praised the children of our parish, as "our angels"!

Msgr. Micheal thanked all for the lovely time he spent within the parish communities of Rossburn Pastoral District and the Khomitskyy family.

We are most grateful to Fr. Mykhaylo Khomitskyy for organizing the mission in our parish and for live streaming it online for all who were not able to attend. Some two hundred and forty viewers made use of this service.

Msgr. Michael Buyachok was presented with the gifts of appreciation.

The mission ended with a dinner in the church auditorium!
