Spring Break with the Sisters of Life (College students only, open to men & women)
Friday, Feb. 28 – Sunday, March 9, 2014
Villa Maria Retreat Center in Stamford, CT.

Experience will begin with a 3-day retreat followed by immersion in culture of life formation (including attending the Sisters of Life’s Co-Worker training), and hands-on volunteer experiences.

The Sisters will take you on a “Saints in the City Tour,” and you will also have a day off in Manhattan to explore the city on your own.

Help the African missions! As we move toward Lent, give some time in prayer, fasting and charitable giving for bringing the Good News to the Nations.

The Lay Dominicans of St. Mary's Priory and Church (5 Hillhouse Avenue, New Haven, CT) are sponsoring their annual Pancake Breakfast to benefit the Dominican mission project in Africa , "Father Tom's Kids," on Sunday, March 2 after the 8:00 and 10:00 morning Masses. It's a full breakfast including sausage, eggs, fruit, and pancakes!

The Dominican Friars of the Province of St Joseph serve in Africa and "Father Tom's Kids" is their charitable work.

Dominican Father Benedict Croell will talk to the assembled about his experience in the East African missions.

Tickets are $10 per individual and $20 per family (immediate members).

This family event could be a good way to begin Lent 2014: charitable giving and prayer for the African Missions. On Ash Wednesday, fast for the work of missionaries and for those who have been killed for trying to preach the Gospel.

Thinking about Lent

Pick up a copy of Mercy in the City by Kerry Weber (Ignatius Press, $13.95)
How to Feed the Hungry, Give Drink to the Thirsty, Visit the Imprisoned, and Keep Your Day Job.
The author was afraid that she’d stop seeing Christ in people. As she rightly says, it takes work to see Christ in the world with the many distractions we daily face. She wonders, “Have I put in the work?” Does mercy have a life within you? Acts of mercy can be small, as we are taught by Saint Therese of Lisieux in her Little Way.

Do you know the Marian Faith Network? It is a dynamic formation for the Total Consecration to Mary —living the Marian spirituality of Saint Louis de Montfort.
