Third Sunday of Lent

Listen to the Ave Regina Caelorum, the Marian Antiphon chanted during Lent.



Lent is a Penitential Season of Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving. 

STATIONS OF THE CROSS
During Lent we have Stations of the Cross and Benediction every Friday evening beginning at 7PM in the upper church. This is an opportunity to receive a plenary indulgence. We follow the meditations written by St. Alphonsus Ligouri. 

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION 
Confessions are available every Saturday after the 8am Mass until around 9:15am. 
Additional dates during Lent: Monday, March 11. 
All in the lower chapel.

PARISH SCHEDULE OF PRAYER
Check our Prayer and Devotions page HERE to see all the opportunities for prayer before the Blessed Sacrament at our parish. 

On all Fridays during Lent:  Catholics age 14+ must abstain from meat.



Fr. Lacombe is returning for his Lenten Meditation: Tuesday, March 19, at 7pm in the upper church. 

We look forward to Fr. Lacombe’s return for the Lenten meditation, always a most spiritually enriching evening led by this exceptional priest and friend of the parish. The evening will include Exposition and Benediction, and confessions will be available afterwards. This year, the meditation providentially falls upon the feast of St. Joseph, guardian of the universal Church.
