Lent and Stations of the Cross
“Forty days are offered to us to follow Jesus our Lord, to be instructed, to be transformed from within, and to find new life. Are you interested?” Read Archbishop Damphousse’s entire Message for Lent 2023.
There will be Stations of the Cross at the church every Friday during Lent at 6:30 pm, beginning this Friday, February 24th. On Friday, April 7, the Stations of the Cross will begin at 7:00 pm. Reflecting and praying the Stations of the Cross is a popular devotion practiced in the church, especially during the Lenten season. Come and walk in the 14 steps with Jesus. Please join us!
In Lent, the Alleluia and the Gloria are suppressed until Easter. Abstinence from eating meat is to be observed by persons 14 years of age and older. The law of fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday and on the other Fridays of Lent applies to persons between 18 and 60 years of age.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word is back!
Join us at 9:30 am mass every Sunday! Parents are welcome to participate with their young children. We ask that masks be worn at this time. Looking forward to seeing you there!
