Our Lent 2024 theme is, “Inheritance: Living in the Favor of God.” We are preparing to renew our baptismal promises on Easter. The disciplines of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving are the tools that our Lord has taught us to employ (cf. Matthew  6:1-18).


God has given us a great inheritance, sharing His life and love with us. "But we hold this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing power may be of God and not from us," as Saint Paul writes (cf. 2 Cor 4:7). This is the favor of God.

During this "Year of Parish Revival" of the National Eucharistic Revival, we remember that the Most Holy Eucharist was instituted by Christ and entrusted to His Church. This is an important facet of our divine inheritance.

My preaching series will examine practical ways of living in the favor of God. We need be "rich in what matters to God" (cf. Luke 12:21).

Growing as disciples of Christ within His Church  is a lifelong process.  Take advantage of the opportunities for growing in faith offered by HFC.
