The Gospel According to Matthew: Learning to Live from Jesus, Our Greatest T"eacher" Lenten Parish, 
led by Fr. Felix Just, S.J.

Parish Mission on Sat & Sun, 
March 11-12
Evening talks at 7:00 pm in church on March 13th - 15th

Selections from Matthew's Gospel are read at most Sunday Masses throughout 2017 (Lectionary Year “A”). But do you realize how different Matthew’s portrait of Jesus is from the other three Gospels?

This Lenten Parish Mission will help us grow closer to Jesus and become more faithful disciples by understanding the overall content, main themes, and distinctive message of Matthew’s Gospel. How is Jesus portrayed here? Not only as a great king (Messiah, Son of David, Emmanuel), but also as the greatest prophet and teacher! And what is expected of us, as his disciples? To be the best possible students and disciples, not only learning what Jesus teaches but putting it into action in our daily lives!

Fr. Just will preach at all weekend Masses on March 11-12 and lead our mission sessions Monday to Wednesday, 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Each evening will include music, biblical teachings, and time for prayer.  If possible, please read the Gospel of Matthew before coming this week. 

Don't forget to bring your Bible, as well as 

your family and friends!


Mon, March 13:  Matthew's Jesus:  What does this Gospel teach us about who Jesus really is?

Tues, March 14:  Matthew's Parables:  How can we understand the radical teachings of Jesus?

Wed, March 15:  Matthew's Passion & Resurrection:  Why did Jesus suffer, die, and rise again?
