SJTW does preaching series where the parish spends a few weeks doing a deep dive into a certain topic and the sermons all follow a theme chosen by a team. The theme for Lent 2021 is “Hope in the Desert.” I designed this image and logo for the series. This image will be shared online and on the screens in the church and serves as the identity for the theme to help parishioners connect the messages together. I also wrote the below paragraph to introduce the theme to parishioners and visitors.
In these difficult and uncertain times, it can feel like we’re lost in the middle of a desert. But we’re not alone, and the desert offers us an opportunity to grow.
Every Lent, we walk with Jesus on a journey through the desert. We take time to cut out distractions and to renew our faith in God and love for each other. And on the other side of the desert is the joy of Easter and the hope of better days.
So join us this Lent as we look at what we can learn from the desert experiences in our lives. Together, with Jesus as our guide, we can find “Hope in the Desert.”
We’d love to reconnect in person or, if you’re unable to gather with us in church, join us online for 8:30 a.m. Sunday Mass live on our YouTube channel.
