Lent is a time for reflection and repentance, a time to pray with renewed fervor for ourselves, our families, and the Church. During this holy season, let’s also pray for the transformation of the world we live in. Through the grace of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, may be all be agents of the Father’s mercy!

Saturday February 24, 2018, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Hosted by Archbishop Robert Carlson
The season of Lent is a reflective period where we contemplate our lives as we journey towards the expectation of Easter Resurrection. But, as modern Catholics, how do we participate in the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus in our daily lives while inundated with so many secular alternatives to the Gospel message?
By sharing Christ’s journey to Calvary with others around us, we come to understand more clearly our own participation in the Body of Christ, able to convert the internal reflection of faith to external actions and a new way of looking at life.
