Thank you to all who gathered with us for the Forgiveness Series by Deacon Robert McDonald. I hope that this video series, the discussions and reflection, was helpful to all who participated. May you have a happy and grace-filled Holy Week as we prepare to celebrate the Paschal Mystery of our Faith – the suffering, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ – leading us to that new life that God’s forgiveness permits us to have.
Lenten Reflection at Holy Cross Church
This week we will gather at 3:00 pm on Thursday, March 30 and pray a Way of the Cross that will be more geared toward an examination of conscience. Following that prayer, there will be an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Resources for Additional Prayer and Reflection
