Views from the Pews: Creating room for Jesus

In “Views from the Pews,” we catch up with parishioners across the diocese and ask them a faith based questions. During live social media events, we ask faith-based questions that our followers can answer in the comments. We feature responses “Views from the Pews.” 

This week, we asked our followers: How will you create more room in your life for Jesus this Lent? Read their inspirational responses below!

“I will be spending more time in prayer and reflection. I don’t often go to the Stations of the Cross, so this Lent I will be attending the Stations every Friday as my work permits. I will also be offering up prayers and saying the Rosary for an individual who is struggling.  At the end of Lent I will be giving that rosary to that person.”

– Angela Toliver Romza, parishioner at St. Kilian Parish

“I will spend time in a daily holy hour.”
