CHALICE is extremely important during these uncertain times. The poor we serve have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Border closures, job losses, and food shortages are disproportionately affecting the poorest in our global community, many of whom already face dire circumstances on the best of days. Witnessing for the poor provides a message that Catholics need to hear, and we believe that our message is important not only to encourage living discipleship but also to enlighten one’s faith journey.

It was the custom in our parish to have a 24-hour prayer vigil during Lent. Due to ongoing COVID restrictions, a 24-hour event is not feasible but instead a number of Holy Hours are being scheduled. These Holy Hours will offer times for both silent prayer and communal devotional prayers such as the Holy Rosary, the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary, various Litanies and other devotional prayers both familiar and unknown.
