· Lenten Reconciliation Service (April 9) — 7 pm
· Palm Sunday Masses (April 12 and 13) – 5 pm and 9 am
· Holy Thursday Mass (April 17) – 8 pm
· Good Friday Service (April 18) – 7:30 pm
· Easter Vigil (Saturday, April 19) - gathering time with fire lit and drumming begins at 9 pm
                                                     - prayers of the liturgy begin outside at the fire at 9:15 pm
Easter Sunday Mass (April 20) – 9 am
 
More details will be shared with the parish on a flyer to be sent soon via email (and U.S. mail for those without email). Watch for it!

ONE OF OUR OWN FEATURED ON NCR BLOG!


Sr. Camille D’Arienzo recently interviewed Cabrini Peace Advocate Mary Eoloff for NCR’s blog.  When asked what makes her happy, Mary replied, “I know that I am loved by the Spirit with every breath I take. That gives me energy… I know that I am breathing in God and breathing out God. What greater consolation could one have?”  To read the full interview  go to  http://ncronline.org/blogs/conversations-sr-camille/advocate-peace-feels-spirit-every-breath

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY


Would this appeal to you?  It is free and easy to subscribe – anyone can receive it (sign up at www.celebrationpublications.org/dailybread).  This comes from the same publisher as the NCR (National Catholic Reporter), and each brief reflection is written by one of four women who meet regularly to share thoughts on these readings, with the intention of helping preachers and others who pray with the Scriptures of the day.
