Stations of the Cross link

We hope you found the Stations of the Cross last night to be a worthwhile prayer experience.

If you missed the event, I have uploaded the meditations we used and you can access them here:  short-meditations-on-the-stations-of-the-cross

A Note on the February 13 Class

Our class on Monday, February 13, will start like every other class.  We will meet in the Family Center Lower Lounge for dinner.  We will have a Catholic Basic and a Saint of the Week.  Then we will all walk over to the church together and pray The Stations of the Cross.  This is a Catholic prayer of long tradition in which we meditate on the suffering of Christ on Good Friday.  It will probably take around 45 minutes, I would guess.

Someone asked if it would be okay to bring children along to the church.  The answer is yes, especially children who are old enough to read.  We’ll have all the prayers in a little pamphlet, and children who can read can participate fully in the Stations.  (Children younger than that are welcome, although obviously they won’t understand what is going on, and they may get a little tired of it before we’re finished….)

St. Monica Christmas Mass Schedule

Remember that St. Monica’s Mass schedule is different for Christmas weekend!

Masses on Saturday, Christmas Eve, are at 4pm, 6pm, 8pm in Spanish, and 11pm.  I believe the 11pm Mass will be preceded by a musical performance starting at 10pm.

Masses on Sunday, Christmas Day, are at 9:30am and 11am only.

Merry Christmas!

Field trip – Friday, November 4

Just a reminder that our optional field trip is this coming Friday night — Mass at Cistercian Abbey in Irving.  Mass starts at 7:30, but we recommend that you arrive at least 20 minutes early because of the limited seating and large crowd.  A link to the map to Cistercian is below.

Website video recommended by Elizabeth Nava

At last night’s RCIA class, Elizabeth Nava recommended a short 4-minute video called Falling Plates.  I think this is the Youtube website featuring that video:
