Lenten Journey



Beginning Wednesday (February 22, 2023), as a parish community, we focus on Lent’s two-fold themes:  repentance and baptism.  This year our four candidates in the RCIA program complete the sacraments of initiation.  We, the full members, revisit the quality of our on-going conversion.  We listen more carefully to the Word of God and through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, we cultivate a spirit of repentance and renewal to better live our Baptismal Promises at Easter.

We invite you to join us at any one of our Lenten opportunities:
