Lent 2022

Lent at Holy Family this year includes:

Ash Wednesday Mass: March 2

Ashes will be distributed at each Mass. Like last year, the ashes will be sprinkled on each person's head to avoid unnecessary personal contact.

  • Fridays at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • Saturdays at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • or by appointment.
  • Correction: We do have scheduled time for Reconciliation on Good Friday & Holy Saturday (Apr 15-16)
  • Note: We do not have scheduled time for Reconciliation on Holy Thursday (April 14)

We will gather to pray the Stations of the Cross on Friday evenings.

In 2021 we prepared an online guide to pray along, featuring the beautiful carvings of the Stations from our Queen of Peace Chapel, available at:


In 2021 we live streamed the Stations several times. You are welcome to use them to aid your prayer via YouTube anytime.
