After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: "This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel. " - Mk 1:14-15

In Joy and Hope: JOURNEY TOGETHER ALONG THE LAKESHORE
In this age of technology, I am sure that all of you know what a GPS device is. GPS is an acronym for Global Positioning System. These are nifty gadgets that can direct you as you travel to new places in your car. You and I probably don’t need them in Algoma or Kewaunee although I would find one helpful when I am driving on the east side of Green Bay. I always get twisted around in that vicinity. Certainly on my trip last fall to Seattle and the surrounding area, a GPS would have been helpful. Maybe I wouldn’t have been as nervous about getting around in a new and big city.
Mark your calendars for our annual Communal Celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Monday, March 30 at 6:30 PM. I will also be available to celebrate Confession after Evening Prayer on Monday, March 2 and 16. Lent is really not Lent without coming to terms with our need for God and our sinfulness and then experiencing God’s boundless mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
