Taize Lenten Prayer Services in Church Begin March 20

Come join us during Lent for Taize Prayer Around the Cross 6:45 PM – 7:30 PM in the church. Wednesday, March 20; Wednesday, March 27; Monday, April 1, Monday, April 8.

The Taize (pronounced “teh-ZAY”) prayer service is from an interfaith community founded in Taize, France in 1940.
We’ll sing simple chants throughout the service (such as “Jesus, Remember Me”) and have a short reading from scripture followed by moments of silent reflection. There’s a period for your intercessory prayers after which we’ll pray the Our Father.
Near the end of service you’ll be invited to pray at the cross in whatever form you’re comfortable with kneeling, touching, or standing by the cross. Take all the time you need at the cross as you place your joys and concerns to Christ.

Annual Diocesan Appeal Underway; Cabrini Sets Goals for 2019

 The Annual Diocesan Appeal is underway.

In his letter to parishioners, Fr. Michael Hendrickson noted that “All monies that are collected over our parish goal…will be rebated directly back to our parish to use to pay for the Village House homeless shelter costs, and install new water mains for both parish and school this summer to replace our failing 50+ year old original mains. In 2018 our parish received a rebate of $47,000 that was used for the Village House homeless shelter we host at Cabrini and to offset part of the cost of the new gym floor. Even if you have not pledged in the past, please prayerfully consider supporting this mission.”
