Lent and More!

Saturday, 09 March 2019

Last weekend, Fr. Adams and I and the IHM Sisters had the privilege of attending the production of Hello Dolly staged by St. Vincent’s Academy and BC. Some of our boys and girls participated in the production and did a fantastic job! What great work they did! Mrs. Bernadette Winters, another parishioner, directed the production and brought amazing things out of those young men and women! She did a wonderful job! St. James is quite proud of her and all of our young men and women involved behind the scenes and on the stage. Well done to all!


We had a wonderful Ash Wednesday to begin the Lenten Season! Many people came to the masses and received ashes. Even though it is not a Holy Day of Obligation, it is a beautiful way to enter into this Season. Each of us have chosen to give something up and/or add something to our spiritual exercises during these 40 days of Lent.


On Saturday, March 16th, Savannah will have the 195th St. Patrick’s Day Parade! What a beautiful time to celebrate faith and family. I wish all of you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Be safe!


Between the Pledges and the One Time Gifts, we are about 80% of our goal for the 2019 Bishop’s Annual Appeal. The percentage of people in the parish who have given is a little low, but that will pick up, I am sure. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the BAA thus far. Your generosity is very much appreciated! To those who have not yet given, I would ask that you consider a gift so that the good work of building the Kingdom of God and caring for our neighbor throughout the diocese can continue. There is good work going on all over the 90 counties which comprise the Diocese of Savannah. No gift is too small. You can give online at www.diosav.org or through a check mailed in through the envelopes on the table in the narthex.

I am keeping each of you in my daily prayers. May this Lent be one of abundant blessings and graces for each of you and your families!
Fr. Daniel F. Firmin
