Good Friday, April 3 - the Franciscan Mystery Players will present their moving version of "The Way of the Cross" in the Church beginning at 8:00pm. Written by Franciscan Father Francis Pompei, the Mystery Plan is not a “play” in the common sense, but is in fact a prayerful experience that uses special lighting, a stirring soundtrack, pantomime actions and an inspirational narration to portray the Stations of the Cross in a manner that invites each viewer to contemplate the meaning of the Passion, and how it relates to their life today.
Our Parish Library is now open every Wednesday between 11:00-1:00. Come check it out!
Moms & Tots - The Moms & Tots playgroup will meet every TUESDAY from 9:30 - 11:00 in the gym. Please join us for free play, a snack and craft each week.
