Pope FrancisPope Francis: Lent 2015

"Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Lent is a time of renewal for the whole Church...Each one of us has a place in his heart. He knows us by name, he cares for us and he seeks us out whenever we turn away from him. He is interested in each of us; his love does not allow him to be indifferent to what happens to us..." Pope Francis' letter to us

The Pastor's Voice

February 22, 2015.  Wow, we are celebrating the season of Lent already, time does fly! Just past the middle of my third month back in the Katahdin region and I want to take a moment to reflect on what has happened so far.  Read Father's message to us.

Share your thoughts with Father

He wants to hear from you. Send your thoughts and ideas to katahdin pastor @ gmail . com OR write them and put them in the collection basket.
