THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU offering confessions on Wednesday evenings, alternating between the two churches has not been successful. With the storm coming this past week we decided to prudently cancel confessions at St. John the Baptist. As a substitute for the Wednesday night confessions, we will have a special time for confession before Holy Week for two hours on March 24th, from 11am to 1pm. Of course, (1) there is confession before the 4PM Mass at St. James from 3:00-3:45PM each week; and (2) always, one can make an appointment with a priest to go to confession.

Happy Lent.

On Fridays during Lent, please join us at St. John the Baptist Church for a simple soup supper at 5:30 PM followed by Stations of the Cross at 6:15 in the Upper Church. If you would like to help with this Lenten tradition, please contact Kathy Connor by email at     WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
