Lenten Reflection:  Week Two

Posted on March 13, 2019 in: Reflections

During the Lenten Season we are encouraged to change our routine.  We are called to “cut back” on the parts of our everyday life that take us away from strengthening our relationship with God our Father.

Lenten Reflection:  Week One
