                We move from the chocolates and roses of Valentine&iexcl;&yen;s 
                Day to the parities of Mardi Gras to the ASHES which signify the 
                beginning of Lent &iexcl;V the Church&iexcl;&yen;s annual time 
                of Retreat and Renewal preparing us for the spiritual springtime 
                of Easter. If you did not yet receive your Lenten mailing, it 
                should arrive by Monday. </span></p>
              <p><span class="txt-black-sm">Please read the letter together as 
                a family (when applicable) keep the list of ways to observe Lent 
                to consult throughout the period, use your sacrificial envelope 
                (again as a family involving the children when applicable) and 
                make this the best preparation for Easter of your whole life.</span></p>
              <p><span class="txt-black-sm"><br>
                Since Ash Wednesday comes during winter break this year, hopefully 
                this will allow more children and families to observe opening 
                day. The 17th would ordinarily be the Memorial of the Seven Holy 
                Founders of the Servite Order. We also miss the Feast of the great 
                Apostles to the Slavs, Saints Cyril and Methodius (which is also 
                St. Valentine's Day) on the 14th day of February because it is 
                a Sunday. The confessor of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque &iexcl;V 
                Saint Claude de la Colombiere &iexcl;V is remembered on Monday, 
                the 15th.</span></p>
              <p><span class="txt-black-sm"><br>
                Then comes Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras), the last day to feast before 
                the fast. Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence. The artist, 
                Bl. Fra Angelico is honored on the 18th. Saturday is blessed as 
                the Feast of the children of Fatima the youngest persons to be 
                beatified Blessed Francisco Marto and Blessed Jacinta Marto reminding 
                us that even as children we are called to be saints.<br>

                February 13/14 is Public Policy Weekend and the subject for advocacy 
                is the crucial but controversial problem of comprehensive immigration 
                reform. Bishop Clark's letter regarding this issue reminds us 
                that Jesus himself was an immigrant in Egypt seeking asylum and 
                in his public ministry did not have an established home. <br>

                right of individuals to migrate in order to live a life of human 
                dignity. As we work towards trade agreements that allow people 
                to support themselves in their countries of origin, we need to
