Lenten mission means to link sacraments, faith renewal

CLINTON – Holy Savior Parish is inviting and welcoming the community to attend “The Joy of the Gospel,” a celebratory mission set for Monday-Wednesday, Feb. 15-17.
The mission will focus on renewal of faith and exploration of the sacraments. It will be conducted at 7 p.m. by Father Michael McAndrew and Father Scott Katzenberger, both Redemptorist priests based in Greenwood. Catholic residents of the Clinton area who wish to re-acquaint themselves with the church after an absence, as well as those who wish to explore the Catholic faith, are especially invited. A social with light refreshments will follow the Feb. 15 and Feb. 17 talks.
“The Joy of the Gospel” will have a nightly theme. On Feb. 15, a service of the Word will explore the sacraments of baptism and confirmation with the symbol of water. The focus on Feb. 16 will be on the symbol of the crucifix and the sacrament of reconciliation, with the opportunity for participants to take part in that sacrament.
On Feb. 17, Mass will be said in a celebration of commitment to the faith and the Eucharist.
Father Thomas McGing is pastor of Holy Savior, which this year celebrates its 50th anniversary. For information call the church, 601-924-6344. The church is located on corner of Lindale and Old Vicksburg roads.
