Have you ever found yourself feeling that another Lent slipped by while you were busy juggleing all the chores and obligations that make up your daily life?
Have you looked back with a pang of regret at your good intentions to take more time for prayer and find some concrete ways to observe the season?
Have you ever listene to a homily about Lent as an opportunity for spiritual renewal and wondered why it didn't seem to apply to you?
Has the arrival of Easter Sunday ever made you feel as if you missed something?
If you said "YES" to any of these questions, you are not unusal.
In fact, you may have heard friends or fellow parishioners or family members expressing the same feelings. That is where Lenten Longings comes in. This is a chance to do something about what we hear so much about every year. Similar to the Living the Eucharist program we have done as a parish for the past three years, Lenton Longings is a faith sharing process for small groups to help us deepen our observation of Lent.
Lent is a time when Catholics traditionally have fasted and prayed with the hope that they would have time to think about the more important things in life. Why not try something else this Lent? Here at St. Ann, we will have the opportunity to gather in small groups, once a week for six weeks starting the week of Ash Wednesday. When we gather, we will read Scripture, pray and share our faith. This experience will provide more than you can imagine.
