Communion in the Paschal Mystery Saturday, April 13, 2019

9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. * 8:30 a.m. check-in, coffee

This annual Lenten Day of Reflection and Reconciliation  is the time to understand and appreciate the good news that is given to us at Easter.   This year we look into the beauty of the Paschal mystery as an opportunity to find peace in troubled times.  It is a time to celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation and to prepare our house to receive the Lord once again at Easter.
