Lent will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 18. This 6 week period is meant to help us work on our relationship with God so we can more fully enter into the death and resurrection of Jesus. Some of our Lenten Activities include the following:
Ash Wednesday Mass
We will have Mass on February 18 at 8:00am, 12:10pm, 5:30pm and 7:00pm. This is a wonderful way to begin this season. The ashes are a reminder to us that we need to let our sins die, decay and turn to ashes so we can rise a better person with Christ on Easter.
We will have daily Mass during Lent on Mondays at 5:15pm, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8:00am. Daily Mass is a wonderful way to come reflect on the daily bible readings and to receive the Eucharist. Daily Mass lasts about 25 minutes.
Stations of the Cross and Lenten Meal
Every Friday during Lent we will have Stations of the Cross at 6:00pm. This 20-25 minute prayer service focuses on the last part of Jesus’ life on earth. After Stations of Cross, there is a Lenten Meal in the parish hall.
Men’s Bible Study
Fr. Keith will conduct a Men’s Bible Study every week on Tuesday mornings at 6:00-7:00am in our parish hall. All men are welcome to attend. We will focus on the last chapters of Matthew’s gospel.
Women’s Bible Reflection
Barb Wentz will lead a women’s bible reflection every Tuesday evening from 7:00-8:00pm in the conference room. This reflection time will focus on the upcoming Sunday bible readings. All women of the parish are welcome to attend.
Adult Education Class
On Thursday evenings, February 19, 26 and March 5, Fr. Keith will teach a class on the Gospel of Luke. These classes are held in the Parish Hall from 7:00pm-8:00pm. All adults are welcome to attend.
There will be Confessions heard every Wednesday at 5:15, except Wednesday of Holy Week (April 1st) when Confessions will be heard at 7:00pm.
