   Upcoming Events   
Lent Through Easter Triduum
Wednesday, February 10th to Sunday, March 27th
 
St. Michael Friends,
 
For the next forty days - from Ash Wednesday on February 10 to sundown on Holy Thursday on March 24 - we will willingly submit to prayer, fasting and almsgiving in imitation of Our Lord’s forty-day fast in the desert. It is in these dark and still nights, these desert times, that our souls can experience great growth. It is a time to submit ourselves to the Lord in repentance, allowing Him to renew us. We invite you to walk the Lenten journey with us as a parish, to prepare for the celebration of the Lord’s Passion, Death and Resurrection through prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
 
In the Lent Schedule below, you will find information about the season's events at our parish.
 
 
May your Lent be blessed,
 
Father Van, Father Rafael, Father Staal, Father Alfred, Father Poon,
Deacon Rob, Deacon Dave, Deacon Bill and Deacon Bob.
