ASH WEDNESDAY SCHEDULE - February 26, 2020

Ash WednesdayAsh Wednesday, February 26, marks the beginning of the 40 day Lenten Season. These holy days of Lent give us an opportunity and a challenge; an opportunity to take part in many Lenten Activities of prayer, fasting and alms giving; a challenge to put aside that which would distract us from returning to the Gospel and a renewed life in Christ. As we enter into these special days, perhaps we can take some extra time in the following areas of our Spiritual Life: PRAYER (a vital part of Lent), FASTING (not only food!),

Evening of Taizé Prayer


Why Taizé?

Taizé offers an opportunity for quiet repose in the midst of busy lives. The prayer tradition of Taizé, based on the monastic hours of prayer each day, can help us let go of our own preoccupations and get in touch with the spiritual realities that, ultimately, are what bring true meaning to our lives.

You are cordially invited to join us on Thursday February 13th at 7:30 for Taizé Prayer  with  contemplation at the cross, Scripture Reading and petitionary prayer in a candlelit church.

Monday Evening Novena to Our Lady, Untier of Knots

Untier of KnotsJoin us each Monday evening at 7:00 PM as we pray our weekly devotion to Our Lady, Untier of Knots. Mary, under the title of Our Lady Undoer of Knots or Our Lady Untier of Knots, is an important devotion in the times we live in. The knots represent all the troubles and trials in our lives, and our sins which separate us from God.
