Stations and Soup Supper
Join us for Stations of the Cross, and share soup with our Parish Family before Stations. Soup Suppers begin at 6pm in our narthex, with Stations at 7pm. Bring a friend, share a simply delicious meal, and let’s pray together.
Lenten Penance Service
Our Lenten Penance service will be together with and held at St. Bernard’s Parish on Tuesday, March 31st at 7pm. OMGC offers the Sacrament of Reconciliation weekly on Saturdays 4:00pm until 4:45pm, and on First Fridays at 8:20am. “Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.”
Bishop Robert Barron offers five sermons on the spiritual discipleship we must cultivate during Lent, a discipleship centered on Christ. These meditations cover topics such as finding our identity in God, prayer as the key to mission, our thirst for God, how to end our alienation from God, and how to embrace the way of happiness joyfully.
A Lent to Remember explores the ways that God reaches out to us through his mercy. By reflecting on the Pascal Mystery, A Lent to Remember communicates God’s invitation to each one of us to come experience His indescribable love this Lent.
The Word Among Us
This booklet contains daily Scripture readings and prayers from the Liturgy, daily meditations based on the Mass and practical featured articles on Lent and the saints. The Word Among Us is available in our narthex.
