A Spiritual Devotion for Lent: You are invited to join fellow parishioners in a prayer group this Lent, reflecting on the Passion of Christ according to the writings of mystic Luisa Piccarreta. In this devotion, participants will, in private prayer, take turns reading daily reflections found in the book The Hours of the Passion. Such meditations are a rich tradition in the Catholic Lenten discipline and are a wonderful way to prepare for Holy Week and Easter. If you are interested in more information about the prayer group or in acquiring a copy of The Hours of the Passion, please contact Giovanna at This email address is being protected from spambots.
