Preparing for Lent

March 5, a group of 50 individuals traveled to Bethany Center in Lutz to attend a Lenten Retreat.  Father Ted Costello shared many good suggestions that would help us prepare for Lent.

  • Be Mindful!  Live in the moment and be aware of all that is around you.
  • Be Yourself!  God loves you, just the way you are.  But, since we are a work in progress, there is room for improvement.
  • Be good stewards.  We are asked to share our time, talent and treasure.  We can make a difference in the lives of others.
  • Be considerate.  Appreciate others and acknowledge the fact that everyone can use a smile or a 'hello'.
  • Recognize that we need God's grace.
  • Take time to thank God for all He has given you.
  • Give when it hurts.  Make sacrifices during Lent and attempt to contemplate your life and how you can become closer to God.

All enjoyed the continental breakfast and lunch that was served.  We attended Mass and participated in the Stations of the Cross.
