the Sacrament of Reconciliation
Lent is a
promise that Spring is on the way, and what better way to
begin your spring cleaning than by starting with your
soul?! We will have an evening of communal
reconciliation service with individual confession for the
parish at large at the Main Church on Monday, March 2 at
7:00pm. We will have plenty of priests to assist in
hearing confessions so the wait will not be long.
Confessions will also be heard on Saturdays throughout the
month of March from 4:00pm-4:45pm.
Lenten Speaker Series concludes on March 8, with a
presentation by Fr. James Merold entitled Why
Giving Up Chocolate Isn't Enough: Fasting: A Biblical
Perspective In a Contemporary Church. Join
us at 7:00pm in the Main Church (and
