Adult Faith Formation

Tenebrae Service

dsc_0067This beautiful prayer service is held the night before Holy Thursday. As we prepare for the Triduum, to experience a small portion of Christ’s pain and suffering through Scriptural readings and song. 

Tenebrae comes from Latin meaning “shadows” and depicts through the extinguishing of seven candles and the dimming of lights in the sanctuary the flight of the disciples and the approaching Crucifixion.

Parish Advent Lessons & Carols

Advent is a beautiful scriptural and spiritual preparation time when faith-filled people wait in joyful anticipation for the coming of Jesus Christ. The combined choirs of Our Lady of Peace offer a service of Advent Lessons and Carols on the third Sunday of Advent. This service consists of scriptural readings along with hymns or anthems that tell the story of Advent.

Parish Lenten Mission

A mission is a special time of grace for everyone in the parish. It is a time to focus on the unconditional love God has for each of us through the suffering, death, and resurrection of His only Son. It is a time to deepen and nurture our special relationship with our Loving God in preparation for the Triduum, the holiest time of the church year. The mission offers a time for prayer and reflection with an opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
