SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME February 15, 2015
CHURCH OF ST. MARY OF THE ASSUMPTION
SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
February 15, 2015
FAMILY PERSPECTIVE. Who are the outcasts in our
family? It is not time to pray, fast and ask for
understanding, healing and reconciliation among long-time
estranged family members? Be the one who asks Jesus for
healing.
FAT TUESDAY KOLINE. This Tuesday, February 17th
from 4:30-7:30 p.m., the Slovenian Cultural Garden
Association will host the annual rice, blood and fresh garlic
sausage dinner. Donation is $13 with all of the proceeds
benefiting the upkeep and maintenance of our garden,
which is part of the Rockefeller Gardens between East
Blvd. and MLK Drive. It’s worth the trip to drive through
the various gardens of the nationality groups who are part
of the City of Cleveland.
LENT - OUR SPIRITUAL SPRING. Spring is a time for
the re-emergence of life after the cold sleep of winter. Lent
is a time for us as Christians to reawaken our spiritual life
that has become dull and lifeless. Lent begins this
Wednesday, ASH WEDNESDAY, February 18th. We will
distribute ashes as a sign of our commitment to journey
through this holy season with greater fervor for prayer and
charity, as a mark of our repentance and desire to live the
joy of the Gospel. Distribution of ashes will be during the
7:45 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Masses.
DISCIPLINE OF LENT. The holy season of Lent is a time for
personal purification and spiritual renewal. The three hallmarks
of Lent are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. The discipline of Lent
calls for all people from the age of 14 and older to abstain from
meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent. (Meat is the
flesh of any warm blooded animal). For those who are 18 years
old to 60 years old, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of
strict fasting (no eating in between meals and only one full meal).
LENTEN DEVOTIONS. During Lent, we invite you to
weekday morning Masses at 7:45 a.m. and Evening Masses on
Wednesdays and Fridays of Lent at 7:00 p.m. Rosary is prayed
before morning Masses and before the Wednesday evening Mass.
Stations of the Cross are prayed in English on Fridays at 6:30
p.m. and in Slovenian on Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Exposition of the
Blessed Sacrament is every Thursday from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
and on Fridays after the evening Mass for Holy Hour concluding
with Night Prayer, Litany of the Sacred Heart and Benediction of
the Blessed Sacrament.
SACRAMENT OF RECONCILATION. Next Sunday,
February 22nd, our PSR students who are preparing for their First
Holy Communion will receive the healing grace and forgiveness
of our Lord Jesus for the first time in the Sacrament of
Reconciliation. Please pray for our youngsters and their parents
that they will often times seek the mercy of Jesus in this great
sacrament.

breaded scallops, and macaroni & cheese dinners. We will
also offer the option for either Slovenian potatoes or fresh

2015 ANNUAL CATHOLIC CHARITIES APPEAL is
underway with an in-pew commitment process this weekend.
This is not a special collection. Catholic Charities Annual Appeal
represents the opportunity for all Catholics to make a significant
pledge, payable in installments throughout the year to support the
charitable work of our Catholic Church in Northeast Ohio.
Through your generosity, the Church provides Family Services,
aid to persons with disabilities, care for the elderly and
chronically ill, comprehensive mental health services, job
placement training, summer camps, Head Start and Early
Childhood Education and so much more. This year’s theme is
“Open Your Heart to Live Joyfully and Generously.” Please be a
part of this noble charitable work by making a generous pledge.

FEBRUARY 15, 2015
DANES JE 6. NAVADNA NEDELJA.
2015 KAMPANJA KATOLIŠKE DOBRODELNOSTI se
začne danes s procesom obveznosti po klopeh. To ni posebna
nabirka. Katoliška dobrodelna kampanja predstavlja priložnost za
vse katoličane da obvežejo vsoto in jo plačujejo po obrokih skozi
vse leto v podporo dobrodelnega dela naše Katoliške Cerkve v
Severovzhodnem Ohio. Z vašo pomočjo Cerkev pomaga s
programi družinam, invalidom, starim ljudem in kronično bolnim
in vsem ki potrebujejo pomoč. Letošnja tema je, “Odprite svoje
srce in živite veselo in dobrodelno.” Prosimo bodite del tega
plemenitega dela dobrote z velikodušnim obveznim darom.
POST-NAŠA DUHOVNA POMLAD. Pomlad je čas za
ponovni pojav življenja po mrzlem spanju zime. Postni čas je za
nas kristjane, da zbudimo naše duhovno življenje, ki je postalo
suho in mrtvo. Post se začne to SREDO-PEPELNICO, 18.
februarja. Pepelenje je znak naše obveznosti da gremo skozi ta
sveti čas z večjo vnemo za molitev in dobroto, kot izraz naše
spokornosti in volje, živeti radost Evangelija… Pepelenje bo med
mašami ob 7:45 zjutraj in ob 7:00 zvečer.
ZAKRAMENT SPOVEDI. Naslednjo nedeljo 22. februarja
bodo naši učenci verouka ki se pripravljajo na prvo obhajilo
prejeli milost odpuščanja našega Gospoda Jezusa v zakramentu
spovedi. Prosimo, molite za naše male in njihove starše, da bodo
večkrat iskali milost Jezusa v tem zakramentu.
POSTNA DISCIPLINA. Postni čas je čas za osebno očiščenje
in duhovno obnovo. Trije znaki Posta so molitev, post in
dobrodelnost. Postna disciplina kliče vse ljudi od 14. leta naprej
na zdržek od mesa na Pepelnico in vse petke v Postu. (meso je
od vsake toplo krvne živali). Za vse ki so stari 18. let do 60. leta
je Pepelnica in Veliki petek strogi post (nič jedi med obroki in
samo eden poln obrok).
POSTNE POBOŽNOSTI. Med Postnim časom vas vabimo k
maši ob 7:45 zjutraj in večerni maši v sredo in petek ob 7:00
zvečer. Molitev rožnega venca je pred mašo zjutraj in v sredo
pred večerno mašo. Križev pot bomo molili v petek ob 6:30
zvečer v angleščini in v nedeljo ob 2:00 popoldan v slovenščini.
Najsvetejše je izpostavljeno ob četrtkih od 2:00 do 6:00 zvečer in
ob petkih za uro molitve po večerni maši z večernicami,
litanijami Srca Jezusovega in blagoslovom z Najsvetejšim.
POSTNE MAŠE COLLINWOODSKIH ŽUPNIJ. Res smo
blagoslovljeni v naši Collinwoodski skupnosti, da naše štiri
katoliške župnije obhajajo skupno ta sveti postni čas, navado ki
se je začela že 1988. Spored maš v Postu je: 23. februarja pri
Holy Redeemer; 2. marca pri Mariji vnebovzeti; 9. marca pri sv.
Kazimirju; 16. marca pri St. Jerome in 23. marca Spokorna
pobožnost pri Mariji vnebovzeti.
POSTNI VEČER S PACO GAVRILIDES. Vabimo vas, vaše
družine in prijatelje na predstavitev, ki jo bo predstavil Paco
Gavrilides, znani govornik o katoliški evangelizaciji in kako
živeti in objeti radost Evangelija v našem modernem, posvetnem
svetu. Predstavitev bo v sredo 4. marca takoj po maši ob 7:00
zvečer. Sledi družabno srečanje v župnijski dvorani.
KOLINE, na pustni torek 17. februarja, ki jih sponzorira Odbor
Slovenskega kulturnega vrta bodo servirali od 4:30 do 7:30
zvečer v župnijski dvorani. Dar je $13. za krvavice, riževe
klobase in pečenice. Ves dohodek gre za Slovenski kulturni vrt ki
je del Rockefeller Gardens med East Blvd. in MLK Drive. Splača
se peljati skozi vrtove narodnih skupin, ki so del mesta
Cleveland.
