Two Churches, One Parish

Reconciliation

Reconciliation and healing - an important part of the Lenten journey.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is God’s gift to us so that any sin committed after Baptism can be forgiven.  In confession we have the opportunity to repent and recover the grace of friendship with God.  It is a holy moment in which we place ourselves in His presence and honestly acknowledge our sins, especially mortal sins.  With absolution, we are reconciled to God and the Church.

Reconciliation is offered every Saturday and by appointment.  (Please note: no confessions will be heard on Holy Saturday.)

A Confession Guide for Adults, including an Examination of Conscience 

Upcoming Events:

 

 The Stations of the Cross

Every Friday evening during Lent, we commemorate the Passion and death of our Lord Jesus Christ through the devotion of the Stations of the Cross. The Stations will begin at 7 PM and alternate between our two churches (click on the Parish Calendar link on this page for this week's location). Following the Stations is a sharing of Soup and Bread in the church hall. Please join us!


 

The Way of the Cross

Franciscan Mystery Players

Join us in Our Lady of Lourdes Church on Palm Sunday, March 29, at 7 pm for this dramatic multi-media presentation of the Passion and Death of the Lord.  This meditation on the Stations of the Cross uses special lighting, inspirational music, and drama.  Through soul-searching meditations, get in touch with yourself - your goodness, struggles, and sins.  The Way of the Cross then becomes a prayerful vehicle for the Lord's Spirit to forgive, heal and renew.


Seven Last Words Devotion

Friday, April 3 at 1 pm
Our Lady of Lourdes Church

 After Jesus was nailed to the cross, He spoke 7 short expressions. These statements are now commonly referred to as the “The Seven Last Words”. Join us in this time of prayer and meditation, as we reflect on our Lord’s last words as He suffered for our salvation.


Blessing of Easter Breads & Foods

Saturday, April 4 at Noon
Our Lady Queen of Peace Church

In many traditions, it is customary to bless the foods that, on Easter, will break the Lenten fast. Special breads, produce, eggs, and meat are brought to the church to be blessed. Even if this has not been your tradition in the past, you are welcome to attend - and maybe begin a new tradition in your family!
