Lenten Taize 2017

In a busy world, we need more and more to feed ourselves on the spiritual rock, Christ himself. The prayer of the Taize can help us let go of our own preoccupations and to get in touch with spiritual reality of the contemplation of God. 

Combining candlelight, silence, and Scripture, with simple chants, we build awareness of God's presence in ourselves and the community. You are invited to join us in this prayer experience on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel.

Tenebrae 2017

Tenebrae, from the Latin term meaning “shadows”, symbolizes our spiritual darkness.  Fourteen candles are extinguished one by one throughout the service, with the Easter Candle, symbolizing Christ, remaining lit, but removed at the end of the service.

Operation Rice Bowl

Operation Rice Bowl is a program of sacrificial giving to feed the poor on local and global levels.  Rice bowls and program booklets will be available in the Gathering Space during Lent for your convenience.


Families or individuals fast or eat simple meals and place the savings in a symbolic “Rice Bowl.”  The money, collected prior to the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, is given to the Diocese for distribution to agencies, which feed the poor.

Pick up Rice Bowl after Ash Wednesday Mass, March 1, 2017 and don't forget to turn it in on Holy Thursday, April 15, 2017.

Mass of the Lord’s Supper/Holy Thursday

Mass of the Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the Last Supper at which Christ instituted the Eucharist.  It is also called Maundy Thursday, from the Latin for the new commandment of love, which is exemplified when Jesus washed the feet of his Disciples.
Preceding the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, St. Charles will offer the Seder Meal.  The Last Supper was a Jewish Passover Meal, a “Seder” commemorating the exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt.  Reservations are necessary for limited seating.  Watch the bulletin for more information.
