STATIONS OF THE CROSS
For those interested in praying as part of a community, we pray the Stations of the Cross on the Fridays of Lent at 7:30 pm; the rosary and pios devotions after the 9:00 am weekday Mases, and Eucharistic Adoration follows the 9:00 am Mass every Wednesday.
“…let us stand beside our brothers and sisters in need, sharing our spiritual and material goods with them.”
– Pope Francis
Almsgiving in Lent
During the Lenten Season we are asked to pray, fast and give alms.
Lent is a perfect time for us to pray for those in need – whether it is for their material, emotional or spiritual needs. And when you practice fasting and abstinence during these forty days, please remember those of our neighbors who are hungry, and consider sharing your gifts with them.
One way to do this is by making a gift to the Catholic Ministries Appeal, which supports programs that help to feed people in our community each year through Catholic Charities and our Parish Outreach programs.
Have you thought about “fasting” from a regular purchase of something – i.e., a hand-crafted beverage? Over a 10 month period, this simple “fast” can serve many people need!
$6.25 a week for one month is $25 — over 10 months it is $250.
For more information about the Catholic Ministries Appeal, please visit CatholicMinistriesAppeal.org or call 516-678-5800 ext. 296
The seven-week Lent retreat with Chris Stefanick and Bishops from around the country (including our own Bishop/Barres) begins TOMORROW!
Watch The Search on the Catholic Faith Network (CFNTV) or on FORMED and experience a Lent like no other.
If your faith is already solid, The Search will help you to deepen it. If you’re feeling unsure, it’s for you too. If you’re worried about your kids or grandkids, it’s a great series for you to share with them! Plus, each week Chris will help you dive deeper into how to use it in small groups during his LIVE show, The Life You Were Made For.
Click the link below to get notified each week when the show is live and join us for what could be your most meaningful Lent ever! It’s FREE to be part of the audience, beginning Thursday at 8 p.m. ET.

The parish food pantry is just about depleted. We’ve had an increase in the number of requests for food assistance. May I ask this favor – when you come to the Church, would you please bring a can or two of food, or a box or two of pasta and/or rice or some other non-perishable food items to donate to the parish food pantry to help some local residents who need some assistance at this time? You may leave donations for the food pantry at the Church any day.
