SUNDAY'S LIVESTREAM TEXT
Attached below is the Worship Aid for the 3rd Sunday of Lent Livestream
ASH WEDNESDAY and LENT
Reminder of the pillars of Lent: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving.
On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, all those between the ages of 18 and 60 are asked to FAST, which is limit oneself to one main meal (or the equivalent in two smaller meals). On the Fridays of Lent, all those 14 and over are reminded to abstain from eating meat as a sign of sacrifice.
Stations of the Cross will be done OUTSIDE on Fridays at 6 PM weather permitting. (If raining or snowing, they are cancelled!) Unfortunately, there are no Soup Suppers this Lent.
CAJUN SHRIMP LENTEN DINNERS
Because we cannot do the Lenten Soup Suppers this year, the Home and School Association (HASA) will be selling Cajun Shrimp and Rice dinners in the church parking lots on several Fridays during Lent. Dinners will be sold on March 5th, March 19th and March 26th from 2:30 until 6:30 PM in the Morton Center parking lot. Pre-orders will be taken and the cost is $10. Please call the school office (726-3418) for more information. We appreciate your continued support of our school.
Our parish needs Altar Servers to serve during weekend Masses (we will start back scheduling them at Easter). Boys and girls in the 3rd grade (and up) who have received the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist are eligible to participate in this ministry. Training will be provided. The next Altar Server Training will be held on Sunday, April 18 at 9:40 AM in the Church. To sign up, or for more information contact John Bunting at [email protected] or 252-726-3559.

BISHOP'S ANNUAL APPEAL 2021
The 2021 Bishop's Annual Appeal funds many ministries in the areas of charity, evangelization and worship. Jesus taught us to go out and spread the Good News. The Bishop's Annual Appeal funds all or portions of programs and ministries that attempt to evangelize across Eastern North Carolina. One hundred years ago, there were fewer than 25,000 Catholics in the entire state. Today we continue to grow and number nearly 500,000 Catholics in Eastern North Carolina alone. In addition to providing grants to assist missions in rural areas of the diocese, it also provides funding for marriage classes and retreats. Funds are also crucial to the tens of thousands in faith formation programs in our parishes, diocesan schools and early childhood centers. Bishop's Annual Appeal funding supports the NC Catholic magazine, which is available to each registered parishioner. Overall, the Bishop's Annual Appeal will provide over $7 million in the upcoming year to help those in physical and spiritual need. Please prayerfully consider joining your fellow parishioners in supporting the BAA. Extra pledge cards are available in the vestibule and in the office. You can also pledge online at GivetoBAA.org. To date, 99 families have donated $40,370.00 toward our goal of $73,108.00.
Thank you for your continued generosity.

Strenthening Our Play Campaign
As we begin the new year, St. Egbert Catholic School would like to introduce you to the Strengthening Our Play campaign. The project to restore and enhance our playing fields and playground areas is well underway. We have already installed a new playground structure, thanks to the Home School Association, and a new basketball court. Additionally, we received the fantastic news that the school was awarded a Big Rock grant of $53,000 for the Outdoor Science Center which plays a big part of the plan. For a complete description of the campaign and the projects, please see the link below. We've received numerous donations and the projects with naming opportunities are going like hotcakes.
