Lent at St. Nicholas Parish
A shared journey with St. Mary Parish
Lenten Theme: "As the world changes, the Cross stands firm." -St. Bruno of Cologne
How to keep Lent in our lives
It is time to focus our attention on living our Baptism and being the Body of Christ. In our busyness we can lose the relationship God wants to have with us individually and as members of community. Lent is our penitential time to turn towards God and one another in the way our Baptism calls us.
As we gather through Lent together with St. Mary Parish, it is worth noting where our parishes are located.
St. Nicholas Parish is located at 806 Ridge Avenue, Evanston, IL 60202.
St. Mary Parish is located at 1012 Lake Street, Evanston, IL 60201.

JOIN A RELENT COMMUNITY!
ReLent Groups gather virtually for about an hour or so to “unpack” the Sunday Scripture readings more specifically. What is the challenge for us, here and now and how can we help each other in living the Word? In the course of that we get to know each other better and strengthen our bonds as Church.

Almsgiving with Solidarity Bridge
For patients in Bolivia and Paraguay, untreated health issues can significantly limit their ability to work, care for their families, and pursue their dreams. Your solidarity and almsgiving this Lent can help someone access life-changing surgery and renewed health.
By joining together as a community of solidarity, we pray that all of us might experience God’s healing and transformation throughout this Lenten season.

PRAYER FOR LENT 2022
God of all people,
Your compassion invites us to be transformed,
Your love calls us to be one human family,
Your wisdom invites us to journey through this season with open hearts.
Let us Pray for our brothers and sisters, near and far, drawing us closer to those in need of your healing touch.
