Join us each Tuesday evening during Lent for Evening Prayer in the "Taizé" style. This one-hour service will include familiar music from the Taizé Community in France, Scripture readings, and silence. The Blessed Sacrament will be on the Altar throughout our celebration, helping us to focus on the Presence of the Lord. Join us beginning on Tuesday, February 23. (As with all liturgical gatherings at this time, registration is required for this event.)

Reflection for the 2nd Sunday of Lent (February 28, 2021) - https://youtu.be/up1n6GZasIk
St. Mary's will be offering a reflection series on the Sunday Gospels during Lent this year. The six-week series will begin the week of February 15th and will feature a video commentary by Fr. Michael Renninger. There will be an opportunity for virtual small group discussions facilitated by members of the parish to help us gain a deeper understanding of these powerful passages as we prepare for the Easter Season.
