This event will be an illustrated parable that brings the gospel to life.

“This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, go down to the Potter’s house and there I will give you my message.” Jeremiah 18:1

Nowhere is there a more vivid example of the relationship between God and His people than is seen in the relationship between the potter and his or her clay. A Journey to the Potter’s House brings you face to face with God in a way that will forever chance the way you understand His working in your life. This is one journey you don’t want to miss.

Event details:

We invite our parishioners to come to our Tri-Parish Lenten Communal Penance Service to be held at St. Mary’s on Saturday, April 5 at 1 p.m.

The priests of St. Mary’s, Ascension, and St. John’s will be present that afternoon so that those attending the Penance Service will have the opportunity to go to the sacrament of Penance.

Some information on the Catholic sacrament of penance:

“Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.”
