LENT

Season of Prayer, Fasting, Giving

LENT A TIME OF RENEWAL -- a time for prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  Usually a time where there are many opportunities for increased prayer and participation in a variety of spiritual renewal activities at the parish level as we prepare ourselves prior to Easter!   See below for a variety of activities, events and sites available during LENT:

PRAYER -- an important part of the Lenten journey.  Prayer is conversation with God using formal or informal style.  Our Parish provides a variety of prayers each week in our Parish Bulletin which is  available on this website. Read now.

BEATITUDE PATHWAY OF REFLECTION -- located outisde the SCS Parish Activity Complex is for meditative prayer and reflection using each Beautitude and cross for thought, short prayer and reflection. 

RECONCILIATION/CONFESSION by APPOINTMENT ONLY – until further notice.  Call for an appointment at 516-352-0146.  Reconcilitation Monday (April 6)  is CANCELLED which had been celebrated throughout the Diocese of Rockville Centre, Brooklyn and New York due to Coronavirus Guidelines & Directives from Diocese and NYS.

 

LENTEN CROSS WITH PURPLE CLOTH --  outside SCS Church and other sites on parish property reminding us to pray daily and reflect on God's blessings.  God loves us so much He gave us His only Son, Jesus, sacrificed on the cross for our salvation.  On Easter Sunday the cloth changes to WHITE signifying HE IS RISEN!
