[Amen,] I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about
anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by
My Heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered together in
My name, there am I in the midst of them."

In order to accommodate people’s work schedules and still allow
attendance at Daily Mass periodically, we will continue a minor
change in the early Daily Mass schedule that we have previously
done for LENT ONLY. The 9:00am Mass will continue Monday through
Friday. However, the first Mass will be:
6:25 a.m. Monday,
7:00 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday
It is our hope that
the time of the 7:00 a.m. Mass will allow more people to join us
before going to work. Please consider making the effort. You
will not be disappointed! So, the only change is that on Tuesday
and Thursday the early Mass will be at 7:00 a.m. I hope that
this benefits more people.
This year we will continue our weekly evening Daily Mass each
Tuesday of Lent (except Holy Week) at 7:00 p.m. Guest priests
will again preside and preach. We hope your family will make
this a special Lenten sacrifice. This year’s weekly collection
will go to the Brady Faith Center.
Fr. Chris and Deacon Ralph will also offer an Adult
Education/Spirituality series each Wednesday evening from 7:00

Session will begin immediately after the 5:30 p.m. Mass). The
series will focus on the Papacy of Pope Francis and the “Francis
Additionally, each Monday evening we are pleased to offer
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in the Chapel from 6:30 to
7:30 p.m. You are welcome to come for the hour or just a few
minutes; it will be a nice opportunity to take some quiet,
reflective time in prayer during this holy season.
Station of the Cross will be prayed each Friday at Noon.
