Lenten Letter from Bishop Robert Muench

February 2015

Dearly Beloved Sisters and Brothers in the Lord,

            Greetings in Christ Jesus. Lent affords us an especially graced opportunity to draw closer in communication and relationship with God. How fortunate we are as Catholics to celebrate the various liturgical seasons reflecting the majesty of God and the history of our salvation.

            The Light is ON for You, Year 6. Again this year, the Diocese of Baton Rouge will celebrate the Light is ON for You. This initiative enables us extra times to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, often on designated Wednesday evenings in Lent from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm at certain parish churches.
