Notes on the Easter Vigil

The Easter Vigil is one of the most beautiful Liturgies of the Church and one which every Catholic should experience at least once. It is sometimes found a bit daunting both by its length and complexity.  There are times when we may have several or even many adults receive multiple sacrament in a variety of configurations. This year only one person, Cyrus Gentry, will receive them. Those of you who attend either the 11:15 AM or 7:00 PM Masses will recognize him, and we hope that you will be present to welcome him into the Church. This will also mean that the service will be less complicated and somewhat shorter than usual. If you have never experienced the vigil this is the time to do so.

General Overview on the Easter Vigil:

Both words – Easter and Vigil – are important. Continue reading “Notes on the Easter Vigil”

Videocast: The Crucifixion Lecture Series – Part 3

Our series continued this week with a review of the many ways of interpreting the effects of the Cross. We asked the following questions:

How do you experience the Love of Jesus?

Do you think that Jesus atoned for your sins?

Have you seen the victory of Jesus in this world?

The talk, hymns and prayers may be found on our podcast, but the discussions are key and we urge you to attend the final session at Grace Church this Thursday at 7 PM.

Ignatian Spirituality Day Retreat
The Oratory Churches (St. Boniface & Assumption) have invited our parishioners to join them in a daylong retreat.

During the retreat we will explore Ignatian spirituality that is grounded in holy practices that resonate deeply in everyday life. It is a pathway to deeper prayer, to good decisions guided by keen discernment, and to an active life of service to others. Through guided and self-directed exercises, each retreatant will walk the spaces of her or his life recognizing Jesus’ presence and sanctification even in unexpected places. Retreatants are encouraged to bring journals, notebooks or sketchpads for our time together. The daylong retreat will be led by experienced retreat leader, Kaija DeWitt-Allen, M.A., Theology, University of Notre Dame. Kaija is Director of Campus Ministry at Xavier High School and Regional Coordinator for Contemplative Leaders in Action, a program for faith-formation among people in their 20s and 30s. Sign Up in advance is not required. All are welcome! No fee will be charged, but donations will be accepted.

Saturday, March 23, 9am-3pm in Newman Hall (111 Willoughby St) at St. Boniface.
