Stations and
Simple Supper

The Stations of the Cross will be prayed in church each Friday during Lent at 6:00 pm. After following in the footsteps of Jesus, everyone is invited to a community supper — a simple meatless main course, vegetable and fruit trays, bread and water. There will be a basket at the Lenten Supper for a free-will offering, with excess funds going to the John Clark Haitian Project. Please join us starting on Friday, February 20, to pray the Stations and share a meal.
