OLMC Parish Mission
March 18 - 21, 2018
"Go to Joseph"
The 2018 Lenten theme is "A Family of Compassion." Throughout this season, we are using the Holy Family as our model of Compassion. We will be focusing on Jesus, Mary, and Joseph: by offering Stations of the Cross on Wednesdays at 1:15 and Fridays at 6:30; by encouraging a consecration to the Blessed Mother (using 33 Days to Morning Glory) on Fridays at 5:30; and by hosting a Lenten retreat based on Saint Joseph.
If you would like to prepare for the Feast Day of Saint Joseph (March 19), we invite you to begin a novena on Sunday, March 11. You can find the novena by clicking here or at the entrances to the church.
