From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

On Confession: Indeed the regular confession of our venial sins helps us form our conscience, fight against evil tendencies, let ourselves be healed by Christ and progress in the life of the Spirit. By receiving more frequently through this sacrament the gift of the Father’s mercy, we are spurred to be merciful as he is merciful...

- CCC 1458

This Week: Lent Begins with Ash Wednesday

We are the Roman Catholic Faith Community of St. Philomena, called to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our celebrating and praying together, through our support of the faith development of each member and through our compassionate service and care for one another and the world. We do this because of our commitment to our faith, our hope in the reign of God and our love of God and neighbor.

Ash Wednesday

Please join us as we begin our Lent by celebrating the Holy Mass. Ash Wednesday is not a Holy Day of Obligation, but as Fr. Steve says, it is a Holy Day. Mass in English will be held at 6:30 am, 7:30 am, and 8:45 am. A bilingual Mass will be held held at 6:00 pm and a Mass in Spanish will be held at 8:00 pm.

On Fridays during Lent we have Soup Suppers at 5:30 pm, Confession at 6:00 pm (except Feb. 12), and Stations of the Cross (Bilingual) at 7:00 pm.

During Lent we join with our brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the world in fasting and abstaining from meat on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, and by abstaining from meat on all other fridays.

Participate in 40 Days for Life!

As a visible sign that all Life is precious from conception to natural death, St. Philomena Parish will make its presence known at the Planned Parenthood Clinic in Federal Way for five (5) consecutive Tuesdays beginning February 16th from 9am until 3pm. We walk and pray for changes of heart and to offer prayers for individuals who have made decisions against life.

We are scheduled on the following Tuesdays: February 16, 23, and March 1, 8, and 15. Those working during the week can also participate on Saturdays.

We ask for a 2 hour commitment, if possible each of the 5 weeks, with groups of at least 2 people for each time slot. Sign-up sheets can be found on the bulletin board outside the main entrance of the Church, or you can stop by or call the office to place your name on the schedule. Please walk with us in witness of our God who created us all in His image and likeness.

Signs and booklets will be provided at the site or you can check with the Deacon for materials. Let us show by our visible presence that we are committed to LIFE!

Shalom,

Deacon Jerry
