Small Catholic Communities at St Mary’s Lent 2021

St Mary of the Lake encourages all parishioners to be ON MISSION—knowing, following, and sharing Jesus– by participating in the community life of the parish.  SCC’s are a helpful way to grow in faith and support each other on the discipleship journey.

Lent 2021 is the perfect time to join a group!  The focus this Lenten Season, Mending Our Hearts, sets our intention on reimagining community through the benevolent eyes of Jesus.

We have a few options for groups this Lenten season: 

Mending Our Hearts – daily reflections, contemplations and prayers focused on healing body, spirit and community.

The Best Lent Ever – uses journaling, the book I Heard God Laugh, and videos to guide us through Lent.

At Home with the Word – follows the Sunday Gospel reading with reflections on the practices of Hope, Faith and Charity.

All these resources are free and can be used in families, as an individual, or in a small group setting. Contact Nick Brady nbrady@stmarys-wbl.org to get connected to a group or for more information.


Fused High School Ministry

Hi everyone!
This Lent we have some amazing resources for you as you journey through this season where we have time to really be honest with ourselves and God. This past year was so challenging and stretched us all in new ways that may have made us ask questions like Why is this happening? Where is God? Is He even there? I can assure you he is still here waiting for you to come to him and refill you. This Lent like no other we almost feel as if we need to go back to the start. Have a look at our heart, where we need restoration and Gods mending and healing power.  The resources listed above are designed to help you do this!

In addition to this I will be sending out some materials from LifeTeen for you to pray with, creating videos with my own reflections and will be actively and intentionally praying for each of you. Know that I am just an email cobryan@stmarys-wbl.org or phone 651-429-8001 ext 233 call away. Also download the remind app to get text message updates. Reach out anytime!
