What does your relationship with Christ look like? Do you see Jesus as simply a great teacher? A prophet? A man of great wisdom? Or do you see him as more? Jesus calls us to be more than simply believers—he calls us to be his disciples and his friends. Do you consider yourself a disciple and friend of Christ? The Gospel of John shows us that God became like us; he became a man so that we could become like him and grow closer to him. Follow Me: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John is your guide to a personal encounter with Christ.
If you want to know what it means to really follow Christ, and if you would like to have a deeper relationship with him, then I invite you to join us for Follow Me, beginning on March 13th at 9:30am in classroom A. You will not only benefit personally from being part of this study; you will also help us to grow in fellowship as a parish as we grow closer to Christ together.
Purchase study guides at Ascension Press.com. Deacon Bruce will facilitate.
Call Patti Musto for more information at 843-665-0169.
Follow Me invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ. You will learn what it takes to follow him. You will experience the joy of divine friendship, and you will see how God— and only God—can satisfy the deepest desires of your heart.
In her Wisdom, Holy Mother Church gives us the penitential season of Lent in order to prepare us for the great feast of Easter, the Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The following is our schedule and reminders of the practices that are imposed upon us during Lent.
Now is the time to start considering which positive practices to put in place for desired personal spiritual growth.
ABSTINENCE – All Catholics 14 years old and older are bound to the obligation of abstinence.
Abstinence is to be observed on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays of Lent. Meat may not be used at all on these days.
FAST – Catholics 18 years old and up to the beginning of the 60th year are bound to the obligation of fasting. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting. On
these days, only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs: together they should
not equal anther full meal. Eating between meals is not
permitted, but liquids, including milk and juice are allowed.
HOLY COMMUNION – All Catholics who have made their First Communion are bound to receive Holy Communion during Easter time.

What is the Chrysalis Center?
The Chrysalis Center is a unique women’s residential treatment facility for women diagnosed with a severe substance use disorder and their young children. Designed to provide a nurturing therapeutic environment, Chrysalis offers an opportunity for children, up to the age of 10, to continue to live on-site with their mothers for 90-120 days depending on eligibility. This approach offers women the opportunity of seeking help without the fear of losing their children. Children residing at the center receive therapeutic services while their mothers gain a new chance at life … a chance to break the cycle of addiction.
The Women of St. Anthony greatly appreciates your help
