Pastor's Letter

The Sacred Season of Lent starts in a few days

02-16-2020Fr. John C. Granato

My Dear Friends,

In ten days we will begin the sacred season of Lent. We begin with the evening before Ash Wednesday with a pancake dinner at St. Jerome Hall, the traditional feast before the fasting and abstaining of certain foods. Then on Ash Wednesday we will have three Masses with the distribution of ashes after the homily. On Thursdays of Lent we will have a soup dinner and discussion on the catechism of the Catholic Church led by yours truly. Fridays of Lent are a traditional time for the Stations of the Cross. We will follow what we did last year by having the stations at St. Jerome Church for the first three Fridays and St. Maurice Church for the last three Fridays. We also have the five minutes with the Word reflections from "The Word Among Us" to take at the entrances of the churches for your own spiritual growth during Lent.
