Season Of Lent

  • STATIONS OF THE CROSS is held on  Fridays at 7:00 P.M. We join with Jesus on the journey to Calvary where he was  Crucified for  our sins. Benediction  will follow the  Stations.
  • LENTEN MASS: Daily Mass, Monday through Saturday, is offered at 8:00 A.M. An additional Mass is offered on Wednesdays at 7:00 P.M. to give you the opportunity to receive the Eucharist, our spiritual food.
  • CONFESSIONS: “THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU” Every Monday  during Lent, confessions are heard from 5:30 to 6:30 P.M. This is an addition to the 4:00 P.M. time on Saturdays. Take this opportunity to be reconciled with the Lord in this Sacrament of Peace. Lenten Penance Service is scheduled for Tuesday, March 19th.
  • ADORATION & EXPOSITION will take place on Mondays of Lent from 5:30 to 6:30 P.M. This corresponds to the confession schedule. This is a good opportunity to spend some extra prayer time with the Lord.
  • FAST & ABSTINENCE: All Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence, that is we don’t eat meat on these days. Ash Wednesday & Good Friday are also days of Fast when only one full meal is eaten and two lesser meals. It is a discipline of Lent where we do without, so that we can see what is most important in our lives: Jesus, the Word of God.

Respect Life

“All life has inestimable value even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect.” Pope Francis

Live-Streaming Masses

We continue to livestream our weekend Masses. This is for the homebound and those unable to get to Church due to various infirmities or situations. But it is not an excuse for not coming to Church in person. Livestreaming means it is watched live. It isn’t there to be seen as a tv show while eating or doing other work. Our Church is sanitized after the Masses and cleaned regularly. Masks are worn by those who feel it necessary. So the best way to attend Mass is in person and to receive Holy Communion.
