Art teacher Rosalie Abadie who directs the Lenten Assembly, described the Lenten Assembly’s focus on “doing some needed renovations to our spiritual lives. We will examine the plans, tear down walls, restructure our hearts and build bridges to a better self, to others, our community, to forgiveness, to love of our God. Jesus was a carpenter by trade and he becomes our master builder.”

“It’s ironic that at the end he carried the wood that would end his life. A hammer that he used often in life became the instrument that pierced his hands and feet which led to ultimate torture and death on a wooden cross. A simple carpenter gave his life for me so that I may build a life in His creation.”
