LENT 2023

Last Updated on March 3, 2023 by Editor

Here are some ideas for you to make a Good Lent:

  • Pick up one of the “little black books” in church that give reflections for every day during Lent.
  • Stations of the Cross will be offered at 12:15 p.m. on Fridays.
  • Father Jim will offer his “Lite Lesson for Lent” on the second, third, fourth and fifth Sundays of Lent.
  • Visit www.dynamiccatholic.com and sign up for the “Best Lent Ever” emails that you can receive daily that offer video reflections on different topics.
  • On our parish website click here to find a video Stations of the Cross from our parish, ideas of what you can do during the 40 days of Lent, watch Tyler Perry’s “The Passion” and Holy Week video reflections.
  • Father Jim will present his “Lite Lessons for Lent” beginning March 4-5 after all Masses. His four brief 10-minute talks each weekend through Sunday, March 26, will focus on different topics:
    March 4-5: “Cohabitation.”
    March 11-12: “End of Life Issues.”
    March 18-19: “Defense of Traditional Marriage.”
    March 25-26: “Assisted Suicide.”
