This weekend all crucifixes, statues and sacred images in the church are veiled in purple. Crosses will be uncovered at the Celebration of the Lord’s Passion on Good Friday. All veils will be removed at the Solemn Easter Vigil when we celebrate the glory of the Lord’s Resurrection and gift of new life.
Don't give up on Lent
Stations of the Cross
Every Friday During Lent, 7:00 p.m.
Saturday Mornings – 9:30 a.m.
Saturday Afternoons – 3:30 to 4:14 p.m.
Friday Evenings – Immediately following Stations of the Cross
The Catholic Church sees every Friday as a day of penance. United with the cross of Jesus we die to self. The rule to abstain from meat on Friday still stands, although the bishops of Canada allow us to substitute another penance of equal value. How do you mark the penitential spirit of Friday in your life? In your family?
Lenten Chapel Visits
Consider making a daily visit to the St. Clement Adoration Chapel as part of your Lenten practice. Spend a few minutes in the presence of Jesus, or better yet, volunteer for a regular hour of adoration each week.
