Lenten Spiritual Opportunities
We are pleased to be able to offer some additional opportunities for spiritual growth and development this Lent --
Stations of the Cross will be offered each Friday in Lent from March 4th through April 8th, immediately following the Friday 9 am daily Mass
Friday Evening Daily Mass at 6 pm will be offered on Fridays, from March 11th through and including April 8th.
Friday Evening Stations of the Cross at 6:30 pm (immediately following the 6 pm Mass) will be offered on Fridays, from March 11th through and including April 8th.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has a wonderful resource to help you on your Lenten journey: https://www.usccb.org/prayer-worship/liturgical-year/lent.
Just a reminder that Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting for all adult Catholics and Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence from meat and meat products for everyone who is 14 or older. These are small sacrifices that help us to focus our love and attention on our spiritual lives and on the sacrifice of Our Lord on the Cross.
Day of Reconciliation and Mercy
Our parish will celebrate a "Day of Reconciliation and Mercy" on Wednesday, March 30th. There will be Eucharistic Adoration (Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament) throughout the day, from 10 am until 7:30 pm. In addition, the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confessions) will be available in the Church from 10 am until Noon, from 2 pm until 4 pm, and from 6 pm until 7:30 pm. As in the past, I promise to make the celebration of Reconciliation (Confession) as easy and painless and possible, so please plan to come that day and experience the healing and merciful love of the Lord offered to us in that Sacrament. We are in need of folks to sign up to commit to spending time in prayer during the hours of Eucharistic Adoration; ideally there would be at least two people present at all times.
