We are collecting last year’s palm strips in preparation for Lent which begins on Wednesday, March 1. You are invited to return your old palm by Sunday, February 26, placing it in the marked basket in the Commons. Just before Ash Wednesday, the students of Old St. Mary’s School will gather for a special prayer service and burning of the palms. Thank you
Stations of the Cross suitable for young children will be held on Friday, March 24 at 7 PM. The youth of our parish will lead Stations of the Cross designed for families. With simple reflections, responses and songs, your family will experience Jesus stretching out his arms in love for all of us.
Make this a special time together for your family when you Save the Date. For more information, contact Cathy Walz, Pastoral Associate email@example.com.
Parish small groups are starting again for Lent! They will meet every week for 6 weeks. There will be options for meeting in homes or at the church. You can sign up after Mass this weekend or you can sign up online at
