1st Sunday of Lent  – February 18th, 2024
On the first Sunday of Lent,
Lent is a time of repentance and renewal
through the practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
For all of us, baptized and unbaptized alike,
Lent is about our baptismal covenant with God.
The promises that we have made and will make,
rejecting Satan and professing our belief in God.
This weekend we welcome Sister Amy Marie from the Little Sisters of the Poor to Ambo.  She will have a table in the lobby and will be accepting free will donations.
Please grab a newly combined English and Polish bulletin on the way out of Mass today it contains many opportunities for expressing your faith and turning to our Lord in prayer.

  • Please join the Knights of Columbus this upcoming Monday night at 7:00 PM at the outdoor grotto, which is over by the parish school right behind the McGivney building, as they will be praying the Holy Rosary. Hope to see you there.
  • We have a table in our Lobby today to financially support or buy meals for our annual Shamrock Shave on Saturday, March 9th.  Our website is now up with our current list of shavees – please be sure to support them.  This event supports St. Vincent de Paul and the poor in our community.
  • If you are struggling or caring for someone with mental wellness challenges, you are not alone.  Join us on Thursday at 7:00 PM in McDonnell Hall as we provide a safe and confidential place of comfort, prayer, and information on finding care and treatment resources. Our topic will be “Jesus made tears sacred”.
  • Join the continuation of the fall Eucharistic bible study series starting on 2/20. Having seen how the Eucharist is foreshadowed in the Old Testament, Dr. Brant Pitre will continue the study with scriptural stories and teachings in the New Testament which lead to the institution of the Eucharist. Sign-up sheets in the lobby and office.
  • The Parish office will be closed on Monday in observance of President’s Day.
  • Stop into the Walking Together resale shop to see what they have to offer.
  • Sign up for the Raise Right program now, directions are in Bulletin and the Lobby.  Wonderful way to buy gifts for Valentine’s Day and support the Parish too.
  • Donations to St. Margaret Mary can be made weekly through the offertory at the entry to the church or can be made online through give central.  We thank everyone for their generosity to help support our parish at St Margaret Mary.
