It’s time to begin planning for Vacation Bible School and Vacation Bible School “On the Road” for the summer of 2020!  Last year (for the first time ever), we were unable to offer the VBS ministry as we did not have coordinators.   Contact Melissa Holland at mholland@cdlex.org if you are interested in coordinating VBS, VBS “On the Road,” or both this year.

Come join the Easter Ensemble! Practices are on Sundays from 2-3 p.m. in the sanctuary every weekend in March through April 5, culminating in Easter Sunday Mass. Email Cindy Waters at cwaters@cdlex.org  to reserve your spot today!

All those 50+ are invited to join other Prime Timers in fun, fellowship and service. Two general meetings are held each year (spring and fall) at which time we plan and discuss trips and events, what outreach programs we will support throughout the year, and just to enjoy each other’s company.  Please consider joining us at our next meeting scheduled for Sunday, April 26 at 2 p.m. in the Church Hall.

Email Huie Yang at  tarun_43@hotmail.com  if you’re interested in joining us prior to April!

Weekend of February 22-23, 2020

Boy Scout and Girl Scout Organizations are invited to the 13th annual diocesan Scout Sunday Mass on February 23, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of Christ the King.   Bishop John Stowe, OFM Conv., will be celebrant.  A reception will follow.

This is also the weekend that we celebrate Scouts here at Pax Christi.  Girl Scout Troops wishing to sell cookies before and after Masses on this weekend should contact Melissa Holland at mholland@cdlex.org to schedule their troop.

“They Showed Unusual Kindness”  

The 2020 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Service held at Pax Christi on January 26 drew Bishops and Ministers from the local “Ecumenical Partners” group.  This service is held annually with a theme published by the World Council of Church Faith & Order Commission and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. The Christian Churches in Malta designed this year’s service based on the reading from Acts 28:2, “…they showed unusual kindness.”   The choir, consisting of  musicians from the partner congregations and the Children’s Choir of Pax Christi, led the assembly in a variety of  hymns from many Christian traditions.

For the month of February, the Family Fully Alive theme is

The Sacrament of Marriage. 

Mediation:  “The foundation of the domestic Church is the sacrament of marriage.  It is therefore important to reflect often on the mystery and calling of the sacrament.  Also, our children may be called to become spouses and parents, so it is important to help them understand the type of love that is necessary in marriage and family life.”

Scripture Reading of the Month:  Psalm 128.  A prayer of the happy home that follows the Lord.

Family Project:  Nuptial Blessings.  Share memories of your wedding day with your family over a meal.  Show how Christ is present in your marriage.

Reflections: 

1) Do we think of marriage differently when we remember that Christ is present in the sacrament of marriage?

2) What do we think of St. John Chrysostom’s principle of Christian married love-that spouses and family increase by decreasing?

3) Have we loved each family member by sacrificing for them as Christ has done for us?
