Parish Penance Service
The Parish Penance Service on Tuesday April 2 at 7 p.m. is a chance to celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation with your parish community. We prepare together with song, scripture, a brief homily, and an examination of conscience. Parishioners may then approach one of several priests who will be on hand to hear individual confessions and offer absolution. The service is a way to cleanse our hearts to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection at Easter.

On Good Friday, which is April 19, stations will be at 2 p.m. This and other Lenten activities are described in the Lenten bulletin flier.
Day of Grace
A Day of Grace is scheduled for Wednesday April 17 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Fr. Mark will be in the Reconciliation Room every hour on the hour to hear confessions and offer absolution. He will stay in the Reconciliation Room as long as is needed, but if no one is around, he will come back to his office and return to church at the top of the hour. This is a wonderful opportunity to spend some quality time asking for and receiving the healing of the sacrament of Reconciliation.
Bible Study during Lent
Add to your prayer life this Lent by joining us a for a weekly Bible reflection. The reflections will be held on Monday mornings after the 7:30 a.m. Mass in the narthex. Please note: on these Mondays, there will be no confessions after Mass in order to begin the reflection around 8:10 a.m.
Join us for fellowship. The high school youth group Everyday People In Christ meets on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. in Clare Hall. Grab a friend and join the fun.
