The Living Stations of the Cross - Good Friday

Please join us on Good Friday (April 3rd) at 3:00 p.m. in the dirt lot next to the church for a live dramatization of the traditional Way of the Cross portraying Jesus' Passion in the final hours leading to his crucifixion. In these Living Stations, our parish teens will take on the roles of the various characters in the traditional 14 scenes of the Stations of the Cross. Each scene will feature a reading and a meditation and will be a visual reminder of Christ's suffering.  We hope you can join us for this very powerful rendition of Jesus' Way of the Cross.

The Seven Deadly Sins - How to Make a Good Confession

Are you discouraged?  Have you lost your energy?  If you want more joy in your life, then you need to experience more forgiveness. . . The best way to experience this joyful mercy of God is going to Confession: the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation, which is a healing Sacrament of forgiveness and conversion. (CCC 1422-1470)

Most of us received instruction on how to make a confession way back when we were seven years old. Since then, we have received little instruction on how to make a good confession. That's too bad, because our sins at age 7 are very different than our sins at age 25, 35, 45, and so on. . .  

"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us." - Hebrews 12:1
