PRAYER PATH EXPERIENCE
All are welcome to experience our Lenten Prayer Path in the Parish Hall on Thursday, March 7th. Open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, this is a self-guided prayer station experience that will give you a quiet, solemn place to pray and reflect on your Lenten journey. Stop by at anytime, for as long as you like, between 9:00am & 5:00pm.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ’s last day on earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations can be a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ’s last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete.
Bring your family and friends for a guided walk through the stations outside of the church on Friday, February 28th and Friday, April 3rd.
- Seniors will begin the guided walk at 5:00pm joining the simple meal at 5:30pm.
- Young families with children begin the guided walk at 6:00pm.

Jesus’ Public Ministry, First Converts
35 Again the next day John was standing ]with two of his disciples, 36 and he looked at Jesus as He walked, and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” 37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 And Jesus turned and saw them following, and *said to them, “What do you seek?” They said to Him, “Rabbi (which translated means Teacher), where are You staying?” 39 He *said to them, “Come, and you will see.” So they came and saw where He was staying; and they stayed with Him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. John 1:35-39

Services of Tenebrae (Latin: Darkness) are among the Ancient prayers of the Church which date back to the 9th century. Traditionally, they are prayed on the mornings of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday when Mass is not permitted. The daily readings, psalms, and prayers, emotionally recapture the darkness of the last hours of Christ’s life on earth.
