Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, March 6, 2019 (7:00 p.m., St. Francis service with imposition of Ashes) -- a time when we remember we are both dependent upon God and called to be members of the Body of Christ as children of God. Lent ends during Holy Week with Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and concluding the Saturday before Easter.

Lent is a time of fasting and feasting: fasting from hostility and feasting on tenderness; fasting from bitterness and feasting on forgiveness; fasting from judging others and feasting on the Christ within each person.

Lent is a time of preparing ourselves for the renewal of our baptismal vows at the great vigil of Easter (Sunday, April 21, 2019 at 8:30 a.m.and 10:30 a.m.).

During Lent, St. Francis offers some of the following opportunities for fasting and feasting:

  • Worship services each Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Santa Misia (Spanish) services at 3 p.m. starting March 24, 2019
  • Christian education each Sunday for ALL ages at 9:30 a.m.
  • Wednesday evening Lenten series (March 13, March 20, March 27, and April 3 at 6:00 p.m.,in the parish hall

Come join us during this holy season of Lent.
