Ash Wednesday services

February 17, 2015

10838210_725465517567318_827395808348447351_oAtonement-Our Savior’s will host two FaithWorks Ash Wednesday services on February 18, at 10:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. They will also offer a soup supper at 5:30 that day. Atonement-Our Savior’s is located at 2915 Wright Avenue, between Washington Ave. and West Blvd.

Miércoles 18 Febrero a las 6:30 p.m., ven a Misa de Ceniza en Emaús, 1925 Summit avenida. La ceniza es símbolo de conversión; no se trata de hacer simples actos de mortificación, sino de lograr un cambio radical de la existencia humana, de la opción fundamental que da sentido a la vida, de las actitudes. Se trata de una conversión con su doble vertiente inseparable: vertical hacia Dios y horizontal hacia el prójimo.

2mionikids¿Cómo celebrar que Cristo padece y sufre por nosotros, si nosotros seguimos viviendo igual?

¿Cómo celebrar que su resurrección es el inicio de la familia universal llamada Iglesia, si nosotros seguimos viviendo en nuestro egoísmo y no nos unimos en comunidad, en familia, para ayudarnos, para trabajar juntos, para buscar el bien, para hacer oración?

Bishop Pens Lenten Devotion Series

February 11, 2015

“Unlikely Neighbors,” a daily Lenten devotion series written by Bishop Jeff Barrow and sponsored by Outreach for Hope’s “Dollar a Day for Poverty” program uses Jesus’ Good Samaritan story as this year’s backdrop.

Icon1Lect15C“This year, as we ponder the question, ‘Who is my neighbor?’ perhaps many of the reflections will be about those who might be considered unlikely neighbors,” Bishop Jeff writes in his preface.

To receive the Lenten devotions each morning via e-mail, go to the Outreach for Hope web site, http://www.outreachforhope.org, and fill out the information on the home page in the right hand column to subscribe. If you received the Outreach for Hope devotions last year by email, you should already be subscribed. However, you can double check by registering again. The system will recognize if your email address is already included.

A number of copies are also available in the narthex.

We encourage you to add to your daily devotion Lenten practice, by including a Dollar a Day for Poverty. At the end of the 40 days, your gifts can be sent to Outreach for Hope to support the churches and ministries in the Greater Milwaukee Synod which bring life-giving Hope to the low income communities they serve.
