Stations of the Cross and Soup Supper

On Fridays during Lent different ministries of the parish will be offering the Stations of the Cross at 5:30pm in the church followed by a meatless soup supper in the Parish Center. If you think of it, please bring your own bowls so we can also practice sustainability. Please consider joining us in praying the Way of the Cross this Lent.
