Friday Evenings

Stations of the Cross

February 19 & March 18 ~ 7:00 p.m.



Taizé Prayer

March 11 ~ 7:00 p.m.

Taizé prayer offers an opportunity for quiet repose in the midst of busy lives. The music of Taizé is often quiet and reflective, sometimes joyful and full of praise, always centering and worshipful. The songs are often drawn from scripture and are repeated for several minutes. The repetition leads to a settled and prayerful quietness and becomes a way of listening to God.

Give yourself the gift of a special time to find yourself and your way to God!


Communal Penance Service (followed by individual confessions)

February 29 ~ 7:00-8:30 p.m.


Individual Reconciliation

Each Saturday afternoon between 4 and 5 p.m. (No confessions on Holy Saturday)
In the Eucharistic Chapel adjacent to the main entrance to the church.
