WALK BY FAITH: As part of the Walk by Faith program, we will be counting steps
during Lent to try to “Walk to Jerusalem” as a Parish. If you want to participate, there are
step counter cards and conversion charts available on the table in the gathering space or in
the Church office. The conversion chart lets you calculate the number of steps you take for
activities such as swimming, rowing, aerobics, etc. We will begin tracking steps on Sunday,
February 6th and turn in weekly steps the following weekend ( Feb. 13/14. It is a simple as
putting the date, your initials, and number of steps on a card and throwing it into the
collection basket during Mass. If you are interested in seeing our progress, there will be a
poster on the door across from the Nursery. Please consider participating as we need as
many participants as possible to reach our goal.
