Let the power of music help you release fears, worries, negative thoughts, and anything holding you back. Begin to cultivate peace, love, gratitude, and forgiveness in your life.
We welcome all who want to come and relax and meditate.
While we would love for everyone to join us live on Fridays so we can pray together, whether in church or from home, below is the latest Taize from last Friday:
“In a new Apostolic Letter entitled Patris corde (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph as a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father; a father who is creatively courageous, a working father, a father in the shadows.
The Letter marks the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pope Pius IX’s declaration of St Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To celebrate the anniversary, Pope Francis has proclaimed a special “Year of St Joseph,” beginning on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception 2020 and extending to the same feast in 2021.” (From Vatican News, Dec. 8, 2020)
In this special year dedicated to St. Joseph, we will celebrate a festive Mass on:
Friday, March 19th, the Feast of St. Joseph
at 12:00 PM.
You can join us in person in the church or on livestream.
Pope Francis concluded his letter with a prayer to St. Joseph for this special year:
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became human.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
Join us for Lenten Vespers (evening prayer) each Monday of Lent as we take time to slow down and pray during this sacred season of hope and renewal. Add some extra time to tend to spiritually prepare for the celebration of Easter.
Vespers, 5:45 PM in the upper church and on livestream.
