Lent

Wednesday, March 6 - Saturday, April 20

"God of Mercy"

God of mercy, holy myst’ry,
ever faithful one,

you have pitched your tent among us,
reconciling love.


Heart and mind of Christ,
live within our lives,
form us into people of mercy and grace.


Resources for Lent

Small groups help our large church get “smaller” and more personal. In small groups you will meet new friends, deepen your faith, and get to know Jesus in community – just as the first disciples did. Our Pastoral Council and staff encourage all parishioners to join a small group – beginning in Lent, and as a continuing way to go deeper in faith. Check out the variety of small groups being formed or ones that you can join by visiting Small Groups or call the parish office for assistance.

Opportunities to Serve this Lent

There are many ways to serve during Lent including the Lenten Food Drive, Father's Heart Street Ministry Van, and Oregon Food Bank. For more information about these opportunities and to sign up to serve,  go to Lenten Serve.


Parishioners are always needed to volunteer for Liturgical Ministries during the Lenten Season, not only for our extra Masses during Holy Week, but also to fill in for those who need a sub during their normally scheduled time. Go to Liturgical Ministries to get involved!

Lenten Fridays

Join us every Friday in Lent for our Stations of the Cross, Soup Supper, and Speaker Series. This year's Speaker Theme is "Sacred Places."  Come hear our Speakers present on a Sacred Place of the Church, where each have visited. Come to all or just part of the night.
