Day of Confessions, March 25
In the season of Lent, as we focus on God’s call to
return to him with all our hearts, we will have the
opportunity to ritualize our desire for change and
renewal. Throughout the diocese on Wednesday,
March 25, very priest in every parish will be
available throughout the entire day to celebrate the
sacrament of penance (reconciliation). Over this
week let us make the journey into the heart of our
relationship with God. Take a long loving look at
the ways God calls you to grow. Take this
challenge and hold it in readiness for the rich
blessing that is manifest in sacrament of penance.
“Do not be afraid to ask God’s forgiveness! He
never tires of forgiving us, like a
father who loves us.” – Pope
Confession times: 9am to 12noon
1:00pm – 4:00pm &
6:00pm – 9:00pm
Dia das Confissões, 25 de Março
No tempo da Quaresma, ao concentrar-mos no
chamamento de Deus para voltar a ele com todo o
nosso coração, teremos a oportunidade de ritualizar
o nosso desejo de mudar e renovar. Na nossa
diocese na quarta-feira, 25 de Março, todos os
sacerdotes em cada paróquia estaráo disponível
durante todo o dia para celebrar o sacramento da
penitência (reconciliação). Durante esta semana,
vamos fazer a viagem ao coração do nosso
relacionamento com Deus. Dê uma olhada as
maneiras em que Deus nos chama a crescer. Faço
este desafio, e mantenha-o em prontidão para as
ricas bênções que se manifesta no sacramento da
penitência."Não tenha medo de pedir perdão a
Deus! Ele não se cansa de nos perdoar, como um
pai que nos ama" ~ Papa Francisco

DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE - Responding to the cry of the
rural poor with the bishops of Brazil
In all places and circumstances, Christians, with the help of their
pastors, are called to hear the cry of the poor. This has been eloquently
stated by the bishops of Brazil: “We wish to take up daily the joys and
hopes, the difficulties and sorrows of the Brazilian people, especially of
those living in the barrios and the countryside – landless, homeless,
lacking food and health care – to the detriment of their rights. Seeing
their poverty, hearing their cries and knowing their sufferings, we are
scandalized because we know that there is enough food for everyone
and that hunger is the result of a poor distribution of goods and income.
– Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel, 191
DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE has been working with the Brazilian
bishops for many years to respond to the cry of the poor. Your
generosity helps fund our partnership with their Pastoral Land
Commission, which works to support the rural poor through agricultural
development and land reform. The Share Lent collection for
DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE is on the Fifth Sunday of Lent, March
DESENVOLVIMENTO E PAZ Respondendo ao clamor do pobre
rural com os bispos do Brasil
Em todos os lugares e circunstâncias, os cristãos, com a ajuda de seus
pastores, são chamados a ouvir o grito dos pobres. Este foi
eloquentemente expostas pelos bispos do Brasil: "Queremos aproveitarse diariamente as alegrias e as esperanças, as dificuldades e tristezas do
povo brasileiro, especialmente das pessoas que vivem nos bairros e no
campo - sem-terra, sem-teto, sem comida e cuidados de saúde - em
detrimento dos seus direitos. Vendo sua pobreza, ouvindo seus gritos e
conhecendo os seus sofrimentos, estamos escandalizados porque
sabemos que há comida suficiente para todos e que a fome é o resultado
de uma má distribuição de bens e renda. - O Papa Francis, A alegria do
Evangelho, 191
Desenvolvimento e Paz tem vindo a trabalhar com os bispos do Brasil
por muitos anos para responder ao clamor do pobre. Sua generosidade
ajuda a financiar a nossa parceria com a Comissão Pastoral da Terra,
que trabalha para apoiar os pobres rurais através do desenvolvimento
agrícola e de reforma agrária. A coleção Quaresmal para o
desenvolvimento ea paz será no quinto Domingo da Quaresma, 22 de
