Power and Passion Lenten Parish Mission

Evening presentations on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at Holy Family. Repeat presentations each morning at St. Columba.

Monday: Why We Tell the Long Old Story

Every year, the story of Lent is the same. Yet the greatest story ever told remains fresh and alive for each new generation.

Tuesday: Humility in an Age of Power

Every story is ultimately a story of power. Worldly power is often used to hurt others or to help ourselves. Jesus has a very different use for power: to serve the last and the least.

Wednesday: Passion

Passion is a curious word. It describes extravagant devotion. It also identifies intense suffering. We use both meanings when we reflect on the Passion of Jesus.
