Break from the Busy this Lent
This Lent you are invited to take a break from the busyness of life in order to deepen your prayer life and reflect on the Lord’s Passion. The parish is providing The Little Black Book that offers six-minute reflections for Lent that can be utilized in your daily prayer. In addition to this resource, the Cathedral parish is offering a variety of opportunities to break from the busyness of life and grow closer to the Lord.
Break from the Busy: Faith-Sharing Groups
Small, faith-sharing groups will meet for one hour every week to discuss the reflections from The Little Black Book. Small groups will meet at a variety of times throughout the week at St. Boniface, St. Joseph, and the Cathedral. Click here to register.
