Lenten Family Activities
It’s not what you give up, it’s what you give.
We hope you can share your gift of time with us during our Lenten Family Activities on Saturday, March 9 from 10:00 am to noon in the Parish Hall. We will lead Stations of the Cross for children & families, enjoy hot pretzels and learn about their prayerful history, receive practical support with making and learning the Rosary, the purpose of a Prayer box, and creating the start of a lenten soup mix for a Friday night meal in your home.
All are welcome!
Children's Sacramental Prep is this Sunday, March 10 from 12:00p - 2:00p.
Soup Supper and Stations of the Cross
Can you help provide a crock pot of meatless soup or stew for an upcoming soup supper for Stations of the Cross?
Our PREK-HS Formation group is sponsoring an upcoming Stations of the Cross Lenten soup supper on
Friday, March 15th
. The soup supper starts at 6:00pm, so please bring soup in a crockpot (remember, still no kitchen in the parish hall), which will be taken home with you at the end of the evening. Cathedral will supply the bowls and paper products and drinks.
Stations of the Cross will start at 6:45.

Can’t bring a soup but want to attend? Please do! Again, the Lenten soup supper is at 6:00pm in the Parish Hall and the Stations of the Cross start at 6:45. The Stations of the Cross may be difficult for very young children.
