Lenten Mission for Wednesday, March 21 Cancelled
This event has been cancelled due to the pending snow storm.
The Church of Saint joyfully welcomes the Sisters of Life for this year’s Parish Lenten Mission, which will take place on Wednesday, March 21. The Schools of Saint Mary will participate in activities during the day, and in the evening, the Mission is open to all who wish to attend.
The Sisters of Life is a contemplative / active religious community of women founded in 1991 by John Cardinal O’Connor for the protection and enhancement of the sacredness of every human life. Like all religious communities, they take the three traditional vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. They also are consecrated under a special, fourth vow to protect and enhance the sacredness of human life.
