*Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 22. See the St. Julia Schedule of Ash Wednesday Masses & Services.
What are you doing for Lent this year?
As you may know, Lent is a time to consider how well we are living our lives of faith, through Prayer, Sacrament, and Scripture. The Church sets aside this time of the year for us to grow closer to Christ, by shedding those habits and attitudes that keep Him away, and embracing the virtues that invite Him in.
This year, St. Julia will be hosting a series of Prayer Events on the latter Thursdays in Lent, as a complement to our Scripture Groups.
This series will offer different Prayer experiences, all aimed to help you on your Lenten Journey. Each session will be held at St. Julia Church in Weston and start at 7pm.
- March 9 – First Lenten Meditation based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
- March 16 – Liturgy of the Hours
- March 23 – Second Lenten Meditation based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
- March 30 – Eucharistic Adoration, with a Meditation from deMello’s “Wellsprings”

“A clean heart create for me, O God,
and a steadfast spirit renew within me.
Cast me not out from your presence,
and your Holy Spirit take not from me.”
