3/20 – The Way of the Cross, A fresh approach to the Stations of the Cross connects excerpts from the Book of Psalms to the Gospel accounts of Christ’s Passion and Death. Artist Br. Mickey McGrath depicts the Stations of the Cross in a modern urban setting, using poignant images that resonate with the twenty-first-century disciple. Unlike artistic interpretations of the Stations of the Cross, Jesus is noticeably absent, inviting the participant to see and experience the Cross through his eyes.

Parish Lenten Mission
Sunday, March 29 – Tuesday, March 31, from 7:30 pm – 8:30pm.
What is a parish Lenten mission? It is a retreat, or time set apart, to prepare our hearts and minds for the celebration of the Paschal Mystery during Holy Week – the life, suffering, death, and rising of Christ. As a parish family, we will gather on three consecutive evenings for a time of reflection and prayer. This will be offered in English and in Spanish. A special session will offer children an opportunity to reflect on the topics and Scripture readings at their own level. If you would like to know more or offer your help, contact our director of music ministry, Michael Ruzicki at [email protected].
