Lent Soup Suppers

We are once again gathering on Wednesday evenings in Hospitality Hall at 5:30pm to share a meal before our Lenten Wednesday Evening programs. This year we are only serving commercially prepared soup in order to avoid any food allergy issues with our community. We are also offering grilled cheese sandwiches, freshly made on the spot! Our Free-will offerings will be going to local agencies that we support. Join us!

If you would like to volunteer to help set up, serve or clean up, contact Marcia Kurtz.

Daily Lent Reflections

"Recent and upcoming church initiatives are a good reminder that we are called to journey together. Faith is not something we do alone. We worship together, learn from each other, and serve those in need. Together, we are the Body of Christ. Together, we are the Church." Ann Naffziger

Journey Together Through Lent this year. Pick up your book in the Welcome Center, Church Entrance or Parish Center. Ash Wednesday is February 14th, and this book will take you to Holy Saturday, March 30th. 

Palm Sunday Project for Families with HOBT

Families, join us for our annual partnership with In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre to create a play about Jesus’ last days presented before the Palm Sunday Family Masses. Evenings of fun and learning for all ages! Five nights during Lent, participants will reflect on the season of Lent as they make masks and other ritual items, and prepare and rehearse for the Palm Sunday play.
