Jesus is my light and gives me all that my spirit needs to carry on.
God invites me to trust in divine love
so that when the still waters run thick with crazy blood, my soul is restored.
God leads me down paths of giving my testimony for the sake of healing.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of mental illness,
I will fear no evil, for God is with me.
God’s Spirit comforts me.
God prepares a table for all who carry the cross of mental illness;
God makes sure there’s abundance,
more than enough of everything for everybody.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my crazy life.
And I will be in the blessed presence of God’s healing light and love forever.

The Faith Formation Commission and Outreach Commission are teaming up this Lent. This is a Lenten Renewal Event to "love your neighbors".
We are inviting the members of St. Veronica Parish to help the James Sauls Homeless Shelter in Batavia with some much needed upkeep, organization and maintenance.
On Saturday March 9 and March 23 we will be gathering at the homeless shelter located off Old S.R. 32 in Batavia. We will be painting, fixing, laying mulch, repairing picnic tables and organizing their storage sheds. Volunteers can sign up using a Sign Up Genius form on our website for two hour time slots throughout the day.
We will provide some morning sustenance and a mid-day lunch for volunteers and the residents of the shelter. Later this Spring when the ground dries up a bit we hope to have another event to create a gravel and paver patio for their picnic tables.
The weekends of Feb. 2 & 3 and 9 & 10 you will see a "Giving Tree" up for this Lenten Renewal Project. We need monetary donations of any amount to fund the project supplies such as paint brushes, paint, mulch, storage bins and bags, gravel and pavers.
Please pick up a donation envelope from the tree in the narthex and return to the collection basket at Mass or the school office or parish office by February 17. Your contribution is much appreciated.
Be on the look out for the sign up form and get ready to make this Lent a living expression of faith and care.
