Parish Lenten Mission
March 17–21 (Sun–Thur)
Conducted by the Montfort Missionaries Preaching Team
The Mission is a spiritual week of renewal and reflection. It is not an individual’s retreat or a series of talks. It is a communal prayer experience with our whole faith community praying together, to listen more attentively to God’s word and His call to each one of us. Fr. Gerry Fitzsimmons, SMM, of the Montfort Missionaries will guide us in spoken prayer and sung prayer, with the OLQM Choir performing a program incorporated into the mission teachings.
Mission Times: Fr. Fitzsimmons will preach at each Sunday Mass on March 17. Prayer cards will be given out to every family. Weekday schedule as follows:
Monday, March 18th
Tuesday, March 19th
Wednesday, March 20th
Thursday, March 21st
Morning Mission Mass at 12:05 p.m.
Evening mission hour at 7:30 p.m.
