The season of Lent coincides with the Purification and Enlightenment phase of the RCIA process. The Scrutinies are celebrated at the 11:30am Mass on the third, fourth and fifth Sundays of Lent, this Sunday, April 7, being the last. During the Scrutinies with our Elect, we look within ourselves to find anything that keeps us from Christ and then look to Christ to heal those weaknesses and to strengthen us as we face further temptations. Please keep our seven members of the Elect in your prayers.
If you are a Catholic who has been away, or “used to be Catholic” we invite you to be an active part of us again. Landings is a Paulist Ministry run by St. Matthew's Cathedral parishioners and aimed at welcoming Catholics who want to deepen their faith and commitment.
Join us at the Cathedral for one of our Masses of the Resurrection of the Lord. You are most welcome!
Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word. (Lk 1:38)
