Ash Wednesday Schedule

March 2nd, 7:45 AM & 7:00 PM

“All go to one place. All are from the dust, and to dust all return.”– Ecclesiastes, 3:20.

Join us for the celebration of Mass and reflect with us on the joy of Ash Wednesday. This important holy day in the Catholic Church marks the entering into our Lenten season of fasting and prayer. In a joyful way, we are reminded that our time as pilgrims on Earth is temporary, and we are all longer and awaiting our true home.

Ash Wednesday is a day of fasting. For more on the spirituality of fasting, see the link below.
“Ash Wednesday is full of joy… The source of all sorrow is the illusion that of ourselves we are anything but dust.” – Thomas Merton

Lectio Divina Series for Lent

Thursday Mornings of Lent @ 7 AM Online

The prophet Samuel said, “Speak, Lord, your servant is listening”. (1 Sam 3:10) This Lent, let’s ask the Lord to speak to us, and may we grow these 40 days as listeners.
Speak, Lord is a 7 week Lenten journey through Lectio Divina, which is Latin for Divine Reading. Each Thursday morning we will start our day together with a focused reading of the upcoming Sunday Gospel (lectio), we will then meditate on this Word from God (meditatio), contemplate what His Word is speaking into our life (contemplatio), and finally pray (oratio).
Materials needed: Internet connection, Bible, pen, highlighter and notebook

Stations of the Cross

Fridays of Lent @ 7 PM in the Church

Join us weekly in the church for meditation on the Stations of the Cross, to grow in closeness to the suffering of Christ in preparation for Good Friday and Easter. 
“He Himself bore our sins in His body on the Cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24
