Fr. David Lynch _ LENTEN MESSAGE FROM FR. LYNCH
Blessings for a Holy Lent

In my preparation for Lent, I mentioned that traditions would have us give something up for Lent so that we could spend the time otherwise used for ourselves to talk to God. Perhaps instead of "giving up" we could get involved in something that builds our relationship with Father-Son-and Holy Spirit through a spiritual practice of meditation, prayer or getting active in caring for others.
 
FRIDAYS DURING LENT Stations of the Cross
Praying of the Rosary at 11:30 am
Stations of the Cross at 12:15 pm and 7 pm
 
Join us every Friday during Lent beginning at 11:30 am with the Praying of the Rosary followed by Stations of the Cross at 12:15 pm.   Stations of the Cross will also be held at 7 pm each Friday.
