Join both St. Joseph in Lincoln and St. Joseph in Colon in a parish-wide Lenten Prayer Study. This year’s study centers around the book, “Into Your Hands, Father.” A free copy of the book and a resource guide will be available in the Narthex through Ash Wednesday. The resource guide PDF is also available for download at the link below. The resource guide contains the details of the study: the audiobook version, different options, and how to form a small group. Anyone is welcome to participate. Alongside the book, there will be a video introducing the study and two adoration evenings (Cor ad Cor, 7:00 pm, 2/19 and 3/18). We hope this study assists your prayer life, deepens your relationship with Jesus, and allows you to draw others closer to Christ. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or download the digital resource from THIS PAGE. Now included are Lenten Guides for "Middles" and "Littles!"
Our world is hurting. We all need healing, yet many of us are separated from the very source of our strength. Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith in the celebration of the Eucharist. The National Eucharistic Revival is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery here in the United States by helping us renew our worship of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

"Stretching out his hand over his disciples, the Lord Christ declared: Here are my mother and my brothers; anyone who does the will of my Father who sent me is my brother and my sister and my mother. I would urge you to ponder these words. Did the Virgin Mary, who believed by faith and conceived by faith, who was the chosen one from whom our Savior was born among men, who was created by Christ before Christ was created in her - did she not do the will of the Father? Indeed the blessed Mary certainly did the Father’s will, and so it was for her a greater thing to have been Christ’s disciple than to have been his mother, and she was more blessed in her discipleship than in her motherhood. Hers was the happiness of first bearing in her womb him whom she would obey as her master."
