Today's Reading

 
 
Lenten Observances
 
Ashes will be distributed on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 14, 2018) after the 9 am Mass, after the 12 noon Liturgy of the Word, and after the 6:30 pm Mass. 
Confessions will be heard every Wednesday during Lent from 6:30 to 7:30 pm beginning on Feb. 21, 2018.
Stations of the Cross will be prayed every Wednesday at 6:30 pm beginning on Feb. 21, 2018. When confessions and Stations of the Cross end, Fr. Roache will conclude the evening with Benediction.
 
Please note: On Feb 21 and March 21, we will combine Stations and Confessions with Fr. Roache's Wednesday adoration in the church. Also note: On March 14, there will be no Confessions or Stations due to the Parish Mission scheduled that evening. Click here for more details.
 
Soup Served before Stations
To help folks attend Stations of the Cross without having to go home from work first then come back out, the OLCA Activities Committee is providing hot soup in the back of the church before Stations on Wednesdays from 5:45pm to 6:15pm. All are welcome!
 
Inclement Weather
If Waltham Schools are closed on a Wednesday during Lent, there will be NO Stations or Confessions that night.
