Father Tirso

Here are a few opportunities for prayer and/or works of charity for parishioners during the season of Lent.

Stations of the Cross every Friday of Lent.
We will start at 7:00 p.m. every week with either Mass (First Friday) or Vespers. Stations will follow immediately after. Everyone is welcomed to join.

Angel Hair on Saturday, March 21 st

This event is geared toward giving the poor and homeless in our immediate area a chance to be pampered for a day. For the majority of us, a haircut is a luxury we do not think twice about giving ourselves. Once we need a haircut, we can take it for granted that we can easily make an appointment and after the haircut, feel “more human” as the saying goes. For those living on the streets or living at the poverty level, this is a luxury that oftentimes goes off to the side. When it comes to deciding whether to pay the bills, buy food, pay rent, a simple haircut becomes an inaccessible luxury.

Angel Hair will offer free basic haircuts for men, women, and children. Clients will also be served breakfast, lunch, and snacks throughout the day. Clients will also receive a lunch bag to go as well as help themselves to toiletries and used clothing. Again, the event is aimed at serving those in our immediate area who are at or below the poverty line or who live on the streets. Flyers are available if parishioners would like to distribute them to anyone who fits that criteria.

If you would like to volunteer, we need help with cutting hair, washing hair, toiletry station, used clothing station, food servers, among other things. If you have used clothing or travel sized toiletries to donate, please bring them to the rectory office prior to Friday, March 20th . Monetary donations are also welcomed.

Reconciliation will be offered on Saturdays between 3:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. or with the First Communion candidates on Tuesday, March 24 th at 7:00 p.m.

Take advantage of the grace of the Sacrament of Reconciliation and celebrate the coming holy days aware of God’s immense love for you.

St. Joseph Table Saturday, March 28 th and Sunday, March 29 th .

St. Joseph’s feast day is on March 19 th but here at the parish this is the first open weekend closest to his feast day. There will be hospitality after each of the Masses the weekend of March 28 th and 29 th . Parishioners are invited to bring food to share. Traditionally, St. Joseph Tables are filled with non-meat dishes. Parishioners are invited to bring whatever non-meat dish you would like to share. Pastries are also welcomed. In honor of St. Joseph, we will also take up some sort of collection to help a charitable organization that assists the poor.
