Special Upcoming Events
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent in the Roman Catholic Church. Many Catholics attend Mass on Ash Wednesday, during which their foreheads are marked with a cross of ashes as a sign of their own mortality.
Wednesday, February, 14, 2018
- Masses at 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM at St. Luke’s Church
Stations of the Cross
The Stations of the Cross began as the practice of pious pilgrims to Jerusalem who would retrace the final journey of Jesus Christ to Calvary.
Since most of us will not have the opportunity to make that journey to Jerusalem the practice of journeying the Stations of the Cross as a Lenten devotion developed so that we too may offer our witness to Jesus’ Passion and Death. At each station we use our senses and our imagination to reflect prayerfully upon Jesus’ suffering, Death, and Resurrection, and to simply experience the visual images to reflect on Christ’s love for us.
When can you journey the Stations of the Cross at St. Luke’s?
- Fridays during Lent following the 11:00 AM daily Mass
- Fridays during Lent at 7:00 PM
- Sunday, March 18th at 6:30 PM at the Faith Formation Center
Call to Ministry & Ministry Fair 2018
