As we move deeper into Lent, individually and as a community, let’s keep in mind the many ways there are to renew our spirits within our parish:
7:30 am Mass: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday; Prayer Service on Thursday;
5 pm Fridays: (except Good Friday), Stations of the Cross in the church;
7:30 pm Fridays: (except Good Friday), Taizé Prayer Service in the church; come experience the quiet, meditative space created by Taizé chants, prayer and silence in a candlelit church;
Saturday Soup Suppers: following the 6 pm Mass, join other parishioners in a simple supper of soup, bread and water, in solidarity with the poor. Give at the door what you would have spent on dinner that night. All proceeds go to the Merton House.
Evenings of Reflection: Fr. Charles Allen of the Fair- field Jesuit Community continues our tradition of his speaking to us each Lent. On Monday and Tuesday evenings, March 18 and 19 at 7 pm, Fr. Allen will offer an inspiring talk to fuel our Lenten practice.
Gregory Norbet: will be joining us for the 10 am Mass on March 24, the first anniversary of Fr. John’s death. That evening, at 6:30 pm, Gregory and our choir will offer a Lenten Prayer Service in the church. Men’s Morning of Reflection: On Saturday, April 6, 8:30 until 12 noon, Fr. Michael Tunney of the Fairfield Jesuit Community, will offer a morning retreat for men entitled, “Were not our hearts burning within us?
