Celebrating the Gift of God’s Love

2021 Lent

Schedule of Mass Times for Lent, Holy Week and Easter

Sign up for Ash Wednesday and Lent Masses.

 

Ash Wednesday is February 17

Masses with the distribution of ashes at 8:00 AM and 6:30 PM

Join us in person or via livestream on the parish YouTube channel.

 

Fridays of Lent:  February 19-March 26

Stations of the Cross at 6:30 PM

The Stations of the Cross trace 14 events in the Passion of Jesus Christ, beginning with Jesus being condemned to death and ending with His body being laid in a tomb. The practice of praying the Stations of the Cross originated in medieval Europe when pilgrims were unable to visit the Holy Land, so instead “visited” these Holy places through prayer.  Join us for this weekly practice during Lent in person or via livestream on our parish YouTube channel.

Lenten Fish Fry?

Sadly, the wildly popular St. Pascal’s Men’s Club Lenten Fish Fry has been cancelled for 2021.  We will see you again in Lent 2022.  Until then—stay healthy and hungry!

 

Adult Faith Formation

Open Wide Our Hearts: Lent 2021 Study Opportunity
Sponsored by the Social Justice and Caring Committee and the Adult Faith Formation Team

In November 2018 the Catholic bishops of the United States released a Pastoral Letter Against Racism called, Open Wide Our Hearts. The letter is a powerful invitation for all the people of God to “face courageously the vice of racism, . . . reach out generously to the victims of this evil, to assist the conversion needed in those who still harbor racism, and to begin to change policies and structures that allow racism to persist.”

Beginning February 23, a series of four sessions will be hosted on Zoom to study the pastoral letter.  These will take place on Tuesdays, February 23, March 2, 9, and 16.  Sign up here through February 19. 

Find links to the pastoral letter, study guide, and additional resources on the Adult Faith Formation page.  Hard copies of documents can be mailed upon request.  For more information contact Kim Roering in the parish office.

 

CRS Rice Bowl Helps Us Encounter Lent

What to do  with your Rice Bowl at the end of Lent?  On each day of the Triduum there will be a basket in the Gathering Space to receive the Rice Bowls. 

On Holy Thursday, all Rice Bowls will be brought forward as part of our offering that evening. 

On Good Friday, Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday, please place bowls in the basket and they will be cared for.

We are called to love our neighbor. But, like the scholar in the scripture passage, we may find ourselves wondering, “Who is my neighbor?” This Lent, CRS Rice Bowl—Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten faith-in-action program, will help us answer that question.

At the urging of our Archbishop, Bernard Hebda, St. Pascal's has joined nearly 14,000 faith communities in 180 dioceses around the U.S. in prayer, fasting and alms-giving this Lent. Together, we will serve our brothers and sisters most in need around the world while forming families and faith communities in global solidarity. Take action to build the culture of encounter as missionary disciples with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) this Lent.
