COVID-19 put an unprecedented damper on the traditional spiritual practices of our Catholic faith last Lenten season, including the communal participation of the Stations of the Cross on Fridays. Unfortunately, the world is still in the midst of this tragic pandemic, and the likelihood of another year of COVID-related restrictions to our Lenten traditions appear to be expected. This year, however, we are a bit more prepared than last year, and everyone has adjusted to the reality that virtual livestreams are our new norm (hopefully, for only in the short term future).
We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a live prayer service of the Stations of the Cross (The Way of the Cross with Sacred Scripture) every Friday during Lent using Zoom. The prayers and visuals for all 15 stations will be projected on the screen for viewers to follow and use while praying and meditating. The Zoom session will be broadcasted on YouTube.
As already mentioned, the prayers will be projected onto the screen, so there is nothing on your part that you will need in order to participate. However, if you would like to have a copy of the prayers and meditations on-hand, we have them available for download on our Stations of the Cross web page (click the "Download PDF file" to begin download). We also have pamphlets available for order ($3.75/book - plus shipping & handling). The pamphlet can be ordered on our online store. We have a limited number of pamphlets available, so we encourage only ordering one (unless additional are needed) so that there are enough for others. See pamphlet item below for more information.

We previously announced that we would be launching a Catholic Book Club at the start of 2021. Unfortunately, we have decided to postpone the launch of the book club until a later time. We will post any updates on the Book Club here on our website and on our social media accounts.
Our weekly Catholic Bible Study will resume as scheduled starting tomorrow.
God bless & Happy New Year!
Kate & Mike
