Our parishes provide many opportunities to help you with your Lenten practices of Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving. Please take advantage of these moments at our churches - spend time with the Lord, meet and get to know other parishioners, invite friends and family, grow in your prayer life, and most importantly, get closer to Jesus this Lent!

Into the Desert - A Lenten Study on Prayer: Visit Formed to begin this study! Our Lord teaches that prayer is a relationship and a vital necessity. And yet, many of us have difficulty committing to daily prayer. Follow Jesus into the desert this Lent and discover intimacy with God in this 6-week video-based study with daily meditations in the participants guide. Dr. Tim Gray masterfully uses the discipline of Lectio Divina to show you how to make prayer an effective effort of love and intimacy. This series captures the secret to opening our hearts and minds to Scripture as the means to hear from God and then respond in conversation, basking in his presence and resolving to live in and through his love.
