Lenten Retreat: “Surge of the Heart”

St. Mary’s is once again partnering with three of our neighboring parishes – Our Lady of Pompeii, St. Martha and St. Mother Teresa – to present a three-evening Lenten mission on Monday, March 9 through Wednesday, March 11 beginning at 7 p.m. This year’s mission will be held at St. Martha, 10 French Road, Depew.

Presenting this year’s mission – entitled Surge of the Heart – is nationally known speaker and best-selling author Jon Leonetti. Throughout the mission, participates will discover the freedom Christ offers by way of His life and love.

There is no charge to attend, and preregistration is not necessary. Free will donations will be accepted each evening to help offset program costs. Refreshments will be served each evening beginning at 8:15 p.m. 

As we prepare for Surge of the Heart, please join in our Parish Mission Prayer:

Jesus, You are The Way, The Truth and The Life. With full confidence, we run to You now, bringing with us all those we know and love. We ask that our forthcoming parish mission be a time of renewal and growth in our walk with You. Enter into every household of our parish, Lord; especially those who are tired, lonely, and in need of Your embrace. Heal our brokenness and awaken our hearts to a life fully lived in You. Mary, Mother of Jesus and our Mother, pray that all who experience this mission may grow in discipleship of Your Son. We ask these prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen.
