A Lent for Everyone…
Don’t give up something for Lent. We’ve given up enough in the last year. Do something for Lent!! We have multiple options — on-line, in person, by yourself, as a family, with a large or a small group.
On-line — Consecration to St. Joseph.
March 19, 2021 is the Feast of St. Joseph in this “Year of St. Joseph.” This has prompted a call for a worldwide consecration to St. Joseph on that date. In addition, all are invited to participate with Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, in doing a 33-day on-line retreat starting February 15 to prepare ourselves for this consecration.

Rally and Vigil Hours in Columbia MO – 40 Days for Life begins on Ash Wednesday.
Shawn Carney, president/CEO of 40 Days for Life, will be the guest speaker at the opening rally of the 24th prayer vigil in front of Columbia Planned Parenthood. On Ash Wednesday at 4 pm, Carney will address the attendees as we celebrate the opening rally and two years of “abortion facility free” in our diocese. Carney will address the Missouri Miracle in that a total of 39 babies were aborted in 2020, down from a high of more than 11,000 12 years ago. So far no babies have been aborted in Missouri this year — keep praying! For more information, contact Kathy Forck at 573-821-5130, or visit www.40daysforlife.com/columbiamo.
