App Feature of the Week: PRAYER

This is a great time to incorporate more prayer in your life…

5 Session Catholicism Study!
, we will discuss the Sacrament of Reconciliation: why we should utilize this sacrament and the role of the priest in granting the forgiveness from God. If you have not received this sacrament for a while, and have some fears or hesitation in doing so, come and understand how this prepares us to worthily receive the Eucharist.
Please note that the Lenten Reconciliation Service is Thursday, March 15, at 6:30pm giving us an opportunity to experience the peace of God’s forgiveness.
