All are welcome to join our Catholic Community in a Walk to Jerusalem this Lenten season. This is a virtual journey that should bring time for reflection, prayers, and an overall sense of physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being. Our goal is to collectively travel the 6,098 miles from Athens, OH to Jerusalem, Israel beginning Ash Wednesday through Good Friday (February 18-April 3).
Here's what you need to do:
At our walk website, you'll find a link for weekly devotions to reflect and encourage you through the journey. You can also see where we are on the map. Happy walking!
Lent began on Ash Wednesday, February 18. In this penetential season, we are called to prepare ourselves for Christ's death and resurrection at Easter through prayer, penance, almsgiving, and self-denial through fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday and abstaining from meat on all Fridays of Lent. Here are ways that you can join our community in prayer, penance, and almsgiving this Lenten season:
Stations of the Cross
Fridays at 7:00PM, Christ the King
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
There will be no Adoration at St. Paul
Saturday, March 28.
Confessions will be heard Saturday, March 28 at 4:00PM and Sunday, March 29 at 5:00PM at Christ the King. There will be no Noon Confessions at St. Paul on Saturday, March 28.
In addition to special collections taken up for the Churches in Africa and Eastern Europe, our community has partnered locally with the Southeastern Ohio Habitat for Humanity during Lent for the practice of almsgiving. More information will be forthcoming.
Want to take your faith deeper this Lent? Check under the Spiritual Growth tab for online devotions and other links geared toward making this the best Lent ever, and check back here often for updates to the spiritual activities taking place in our community this season.
Rejoice! Christ is Risen!

It's time for the annual Diocesan Parish Share Campaign (DPSC). The DPSC funds the personnel and prgrams of the Diocesan Offices. Any and all monies raised over the parish goal are returned to the parish. This year's goals are $37,448 for St. Paul and $38,068 for Christ the King.
The DPSC is important because we have been able to do many projects around our parishes with the money returned to us. This year, any money returned to St. Paul will go toward refurbishing another stained glass window and to fund work on the restroom problems in the Hall. Money returned to Christ the King will go to the Building Fund for the renovation of the Holy Family Center.
Did you know you could make your DPSC payment online? Follow two easy steps:

May God bless you today and always!
