Stations Facebook Post (Landscape)

The object of the Stations is to help the faithful to make in spirit, as it were, a pilgrimage to the chief scenes of Christ’s sufferings and death, and this has become one of the most popular of Catholic devotions. It is carried out by passing from Station to Station, with certain prayers at each and devout meditation on the various incidents in turn. It is very usual, when the devotion is performed publicly, to sing a stanza of the “Stabat Mater” while passing from one Station to the next. Inasmuch as the Way of the Cross, made in this way, constitutes a miniature pilgrimage to the holy places at Jerusalem, the origin of the devotion may be traced to the Holy Land. The Via Dolorosa at Jerusalem (though not called by that name before the sixteenth century) was reverently marked out from the earliest times and has been the goal of pious pilgrims ever since the days of Constantine. Tradition asserts that the Blessed Virgin used to visit daily the scenes of Christ’s Passion and St. Jerome speaks of the crowds of pilgrims from all countries who used to visit the holy places in his day.

Reflecting on the Lenten Sunday Gospels

Monday Evenings, February 27-April 16-“Reflecting on the Lenten Sunday Gospels” We will review the Gospel reading from the previous Sunday and discuss it, dissect it, share our own understandings, and help each other uncover the truth of God’s will that is intended for each of us, personally and communally.  This scripture reflection and faith sharing is designed to help each other grow deeper in our Catholic faith and Catholic spirituality.  Let’s gather and get to know each other better as we open the Gospel readings.  God gives us each many thoughts and ideas to share with each other.  Bring a friend.  All are welcome.  Time is 6:30 PM-7:30 PM.  Facilitated by Linda Frommelt/Faith Formation.

We have New Confession times and are returning to the Confessional near the Sanctuary and the baptism font.
