COME MARINATE IN THE WORD! "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ!" (St. Jerome). The Jubilee of
the Word Marathon is now an annual Festival. Beginning on Ash Wednesday March 6 at 12:30 PM the Bible
will be read publicly cover to cover without pause in the Square of St. Martinville . The Marathon will
conclude on the First Sunday of Lent, March 10, at 4:30 PM, just prior to the 5:00 PM parish Mass. 300
lectors will be needed for 20 minute intervals. Lectors from parishes from throughout the diocese and
others interested in reading are encouraged to contact their Church parish and signup for a reading slot
during the Marathon. Please mark your calendars and bring the family and friends to come out to the
Square to listen for a while to the Word of God. All are encouraged to attend and listen and Marinate in the Word!
