MAKING CONFESSION IN LENT
Please contact Fr. Hines for an appointment to hear your Sacramental Confession during Lent.

LENTEN STUDY BEGINS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8
You are invited to continue (or begin) your reading in The Elements of the Spiritual Life by Frederic Harton. We will meet to discuss whatever God is prompting you in your personal reading. Please read Chapters 7 and 8 before that date. Spiritual reading, whether from treasures of the faith like this one, or from sacred Scripture is a way of placing yourself in God’s presence to be spoken to, and to be strengthened and encouraged in following Christ. Whether you can come on Wednesdays or not, we invite you to join us in reading. If you need a book, please sign-up on the patio and we will place and order for receipt in time for the first class.
