Best Lent Ever

So…what is BEST LENT EVER?

It’s a free and awesome daily Lenten video program that will help you unlock your God-given potential. BEST LENT EVER is more than just a daily email program. It’s 40-days of bite-sized parish renewal. If everyone in our parish watched a great, inspiring video each morning during Lent, what would happen? Let’s find out!

Don’t forget to pick up a Lenten journal at the back of The Cathedral.

What is Dynamic Parish?

In early January, you may have seen the Matthew Kelly video announcing our participation in Dynamic Parish, a 5-year pilot program that will provide Our Lady’s Cathedral with a wealth of free resources from Dynamic Catholic.

When Father John met with the consultants from Dynamic Catholic, they made our parish an offer they would only extend to five parishes in our Archdiocese. And we would become one of 61 parishes across the country to be selected!

Father John said, yes. He didn’t say yes because he thought taking this parish community to the next level would be easy. It will certainly be difficult at times. It will take work on his part, on your part, on all our part as a parish. Rather, he said yes, because you are worth it…we are worth it.
