Second Sunday of Lent
March 13, 2022

Last Sunday we sent our catechumens, those preparing for the Easter Sacraments, namely Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, to the cathedral for the Rite of Election.

Second Collection
March 12-13th

This weekend, the second collection is for The Black and Indian Mission. These missions exist to help local African American and Native American Communities throughout the United States spread the Good News and respond to real and pressing needs on the ground.

Donations can be dropped into the collection baskets or online here. Please select "Second Collection" and specific options will appear.

The scrutinies, which are solemnly celebrated on Sundays and are reinforced by rites of self-searching and repentance, have above all a spiritual purpose. Read More...
