Lenten Opportunities

Lent is traditionally a time when Catholics focus on growing in our faith, strengthening our relationship with Jesus Christ, and building our participation in the church. We look forward to journeying with you!

Opportunities at St. Mary’s for Lent

Seder Meal – Saturday, March 25th 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

We typically celebrate sometime before Holy Week with an imitation Seder meal. What’s a Seder meal you ask? https://denvercatholic.org/host-family-seder-meal/ It’s very educational and an interesting look at history! Tickets will be made available closer to the event. Watch the bulletin for details.

Small Faith Sharing Groups

Join a small group of people sharing life, faith, and Catholic values. Bring an open heart and a questioning mind. Each week will include a discussion on the upcoming Sunday reading. Each discussion will include prayers, scripture readings, conversation starters, reflections, and questions. Sunday readings will come alive and help integrate them into our daily lives.

  • Join an existing group by contacting the office here. Caroline has lists of groups taking new people or you can form your own with those around you. It can be a very rewarding addition to Lent!
  • We aren’t allowed to post the materials directly here for download but if you email us we can send you the information. We also have packets printed and available at the Family Center Office.

Weekly Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

You are invited to join us each Thursday during Lent from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. for the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. There is also one first Friday on March 3rd where there will be a 24 hour opportunity to visit in Adoration.

“All of us, gazing on the Lord’s glory with unveiled faces, are being transformed from glory to glory into His very image by the Lord Who is the Spirit.”

2 Corinthians 3:18

Soup and Bread Suppers

Each Friday before Stations of the Cross we will gather at the Family Center for a soup and bread supper provided by the group hosting the Stations that Friday. They will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Join us for Stations of the Cross each Friday

You can check the calendar here to see times for these in Genesee and in Moscow. Stations are hosted each week by a different group of the Parish. In Moscow, they will be at 12:10 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.

CRS Rice Bowls

Collect Lenten alms throughout Lent and we will donate them to Catholic Relief Services after Easter. Rice Bowls can be picked up at the office soon.
