See the schedule of offerings LENT 2024 for opportunities to deepen your relationship with God and others!
Celebrating the Eucharistic is central to the life of Catholic Christians. Our own conscious, active participation at Mass in the Eucharist (“A mystery to be celebrated”) calls us to be The Body of Christ, so that we may offer God praise that is right and just. (Read Devotional-Journey-Summary-Guide to help you participate in Mass more fully.) Celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation often. Although we are body, mind and spirit, “It is the spirit that gives life.” (John 6:63) Bring all your hurts, pains, sorrows and joys to Mass weekly. There, with the community, we offer ourselves and are fed by the Word and the Eucharist. Come. Praise. Pray. Be fed. Leave with the love of God radiating out of you! “It is God alone who is the source of all that we have and He alone can fulfill all our needs.” Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC #1324)
