Soup, Bread and Stations

Each Friday during Lent one of our church organizations will host a Lenten meal of soup, bread and beverage before Stations of the Cross.  Our Newman students will be assisting each group!  Join us Friday evenings beginning March 14 in the Parish Center at 6:30 p.m.  for dinner and then in the church for Stations of the Cross at 7:30 p.m.

Lenten Observances

Wednesday, March 5 is Ash Wednesday.  Masses will be celebrated at 12:10 and 7:00 p.m.  Ashes will be distributed during the Masses.  Begin your Lenten journey with Mass.

Beginning March 7th and all Friday evenings of Lent, we will again observe the Stations of the Cross in the Church at 7:30 p.m.   Each week we will follow the Way of the Cross using prayers based on one of the four Gospels.  This Lenten observance provides a good way to deepen your prayer life.  It is also a good opportunity for a family to share this traditional Catholic practice.  The music for the first service will be presented by the St. John Youth Choir.

Fish Fry

The First Friday of Lent is March 7th.  On that night, Parish Life Committee will hold the popular Annual Fish Fry Supper at 6:00 p.m. in the Parish Center.

Carter’s Catering (Adel) will provide fried fish fillets, hush puppies, coleslaw, grits, dessert and beverages.   Grilled cheese sandwiches will be available for the little ones.

Paid supper reservations are required.  NO meals will be sold at the door.  The cost is $7 for adults and $4 for children 10 and under.  Make your paid reservations at the Parish Life Committee table after Mass on February 22/23 and March 1/2.
