First Sunday of Lent
The waters of Baptism make us part of the new covenant in Christ. But the Bishops’ pastoral letter on
stewardship reminds us that “there is a fundamental obligation arising from the Sacrament of Baptism…that
people place their gifts, their resources – their selves – at God’s service in and through the Church.”
