The Lenten Season, which begins on Ash Wednesday (February 18) and ends with the beginning of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday (April 2), has a twofold character: to prepare both Catechumens (those to be baptized at the Easter Vigil) and the Faithful to celebrate the Paschal Mystery (the work of salvation wrought by the death and resurrection of Jesus).
To enter into this holy season with us, please see Lent at the Cathedral 2015, with information on events such as:
*Weekly stations of the Cross* *Eucharistic adoration* *Parish-wide almsgiving* * Parish Lenten Mission* *Bible studies and prayer groups* *Holy Week Schedule*
“Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:32)
Come join us for the Hearts on Fire Bible Study where we share the words of the disciples on the road to Emmaus, seeing how Christ speaks to us through the Scriptures and the journeys of our daily lives. We meet Sunday mornings after the 9 a.m. Mass in the music room of the school and delve into the Mass readings of the day. For Lent, we will also reflect on our Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving together. All are welcome, and refreshments and childcare are provided.
All high schoolers are welcome to join the St. Matthew Youth Group! Large group gatherings take place the first Sunday evening of the month from 6:30 -8:00 p.m. in the school gym (with an optional dodgeball throwdown following).
All teens are also welcome to join a weekly small group. For more information, please contact Ash & Sarah Scarbrough at 317-426-0295 or email@example.com.
On the second Saturday of each month members of the Catholic Peace Fellowship host a recitation of the rosary for peace to pray for an end to war, terrorism, violence, and oppression, especially for those persecuted members of the Body of Christ, for their persecutors and for the disarming of our own hearts, lives and communities. You are invited to join this prayer at 12:10, following the Cathedral Holy Hour.
Below are the dates for the upcoming rosaries for peace:
Sunday: 7:00am, 9:00am, 11:00am & 5:30pm
Weekday: 7:00am & 5:30pm
Saturdays: Following 7am Mass and 11:00am – 12:00 noon
You can register at the cathedral parish online or by visiting or calling the church office. We look forward to welcoming you!
