This Friday evening the Adoration Chapel and Food & Faith Apostolates sponsor our Lenten meatless meal in the parish hall at 6:00 pm. We will have confessions beginning at 6:30 pm, and Stations of the Cross at 7:00 pm. The meatless meal menu is Three Sister Stew with corn and flour tortillas for quesadillas (corn tortillas and stew are gluten free), dessert and beverages. Join us for good food, fellowship and a great opportunity for prayer, fasting and almsgiving, the three practices of Lent.
Save the date: On April 1st Cooking with our Saints is holding a Malaysian cooking class—details to follow. The two-and-one-half-hour Saturday class includes hands-on instruction, a chance to sit down and eat what students cooked, and a take-home folder of the recipes so participants can cook "saintly" meals at home. Price: $15 per session. Class size limited to 15. Time: 11:00 am to 1:30 pm in the parish hall and kitchen. For information or to register, please email Sandy Greeley at email@example.com or Fernando Flores at firstname.lastname@example.org.
