“May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the endurance of Christ.”

-2 THESSALONIANS 3:5

Every Lent the Church asks three things of her members: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. These are three spiritual disciplines that actually grow your faith. But often our parishioners are heard saying how they wish they had a better prayer life, or a better relationship with God, or a deeper Catholic faith – yet they do not know where to start. A few “Our Fathers” here or a Scripture reflection there – and they soon give up the effort. This year we are asking all our parishioners to join together to Give Up, Pick Up, and Offer Up the same things for Lent 2019. Through these spiritual disciplines and practices your personal faith will grow, and so will the unity of our Church community. Our prayer is that we can hold each other accountable to growing in virtue and holiness this Lenten season as parish family. [Explicación en Español]

PRAYER OPPORTUNITIES

Parish Lenten Mission

 

Worship, Adoration, and a Message from special guest Katie Prejean. The night will be a powerful encounter with Jesus as our entire parish prepares to ReCenter our hearts on Christ as we begin this Lenten journey.

SUNDAY, MARCH 3, 2019
7:30PM – 9:00PM in Main Sanctuary

Ash Wednesday

 

Ash Wednesday opens the Lent season and comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penance and fasting. The practice includes the wearing of ashes on the head. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us. As the ashes are applied to a person’s forehead, the words, “Repent and believe in the Gospel” are proclaimed.

Parish Reconciliation Service

 

Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ. See John 20:21-23 for more info.

MONDAY, MARCH 25, 2019

Stations of The Cross

 

The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ’s Passion and Death. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ’s last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual or group moves to the next station until all 14 are complete. The Stations of the Cross will be prayed every Friday night during Lent in the main sanctuary.
