Lenten Cross

Holy Thursday, April 17th

The day starts with Morning Prayer at 8:30 am.
The Sacred Triduum begins with the
Mass of the Lord's Supper at 7 pm.  It is a powerful commemoration of the Last Supper with the washing of feet.  Afterwards, the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist will be reserved in our Chapel of Repose in our "garden" located in the Famly Center until midnight.  All are welcome to spend some quality time with the Lord.
Vistar Iglesias ... Many cultures have the tradition of visiting five churches this evening.  We would like to honor this tradition, beginning and concluding at St. Paul.  Afterwards, we will go for breakfast.  This is a wonderful way to "stay awake" and to join the Lordi nprayer in the "Garden of Gethsemene".

Divine MercyDivine Mercy Novena

"Jesus, I trust in you!" 
Each day at 3 pm, the hour of mercy, we will continue to pray our Novena to Divine Mercy in the Santo Nino shrine.  Jesus said to St. Faustina:

"I desire that during these nine days you bring souls to the fount of My mercy, that they may draw strength and refreshment and whatever graces they need in the hardships of life, and, especially at the hour of death.
