Lenten Reconciliation Service
Join for our parish Lenten Reconciliation Service on Monday, March 25, at 7:00pm in the church. A number of priests will be on hand to hear confessions. Don’t miss this opportunity to receive the healing grace of God’s forgiveness and love. Materials will be made available for guidance.

Prayer in the Spirit of Taizé
Join us for a special prayer service in the style of Taizé on Tuesday, March 26, at 7:00pm in the church. This style of sung prayer with short, repetitive refrains promotes meditation and devotion, and it originated with the lay monastic community in Taizé, France. Let us use this special form of prayer to grow closer to God as we prepare to celebrate Christ’s victory over sin and death.

Stations of the Cross & Soup Suppers
Join us on Fridays during Lent, at 7:00pm in the church, as we walk and pray the ancient devotion of the Way of the Cross. The Stations of the Cross began as the practice of pious pilgrims to Jerusalem who would retrace the final journey of Jesus Christ to Calvary. Later, for the many who wanted to pass along the same route but could not make the trip to Jerusalem, a practice developed that eventually took the form of the fourteen stations familiar to us today. Please note: Stations will begin at 4:30pm on Friday, March 22, before the Fish Fry.

Join fellow parishioners for a simple meal of meatless soup and bread at our Friday Soup Suppers during Lent beginning at 6:00pm in Founders Hall. Soup Suppers are conveniently timed to coincide with Stations of the Cross at 7pm. Signup online to volunteer to bring dinner items. For more info, contact Sean Driscoll at Please note: no Soup Supper March 22 due to the Fish Fry.
