SAINT LAWRENCE PARISH

505 Shelton Avenue
 
Huntington, Connecticut  06484
203-929-5355

 

During Lent there will be daily Mass at 9:00 am and 5:30 pm.  We invite you to stop in on your way home from work or after your busy day and join us as we remember the great sacrifice of the Lord, a gift we will celebrate here each day at Mass.

During Lent there will be several special events and celebrations.  We encourage you to prepare yourself for the Resurrection of Jesus and to bring yourself closer to our Lord by participating and reflecting on his suffering and sacrifice.

Reconciliation is God's gift of forgiveness and the removal of the obstacles we place between ourselves and God.  Lent is a time for penance, repentance, and forgiveness...renewal.  Here at Saint Lawrence the Sacrament of Penance is offered every Saturday from 4:00 - 4:45 pm and on Sundays from 11:00 - 11:30 am

Stations of the Cross are a Catholic custom that commemorates the passion of Jesus on Good Friday.  Stations of the Cross will be held every Friday during Lent at 7:00 pm in the Church.

Scriptural Rosary helps keep our minds focused on Jesus' journey to Calvary.  We will pray the Rosary each Thursday night during Lent at 7:30 pm in the Church.

Coping with Suffering Workshops
Today, because of social media, we are more aware of the suffering and pain our brothers and sisters bear in every part of the world.  Christians in the Middle East suffer the loss of life, family members, and the necessities of life because of their faith.  People who are addicted to drugs and alcohol lose their freedom to live happy and prosperous lives because of their addiction.  The elderly, the infirm, the terminally ill greatly suffer because of their medical or physical condition.  The caregivers find themselves unable at times to cope with life and its challenges.
Our workshops provide a Christian perspective on these and many other life issues that we face each and every day.  Come and take some time to refresh yourself, to share your life’s experiences and challenges, to find comfort and support through your faith, and encouragement to know that you are not alone.  God is with you on this journey and will carry you on those days when life seems too much to bear.  “Come to me, you are burdened, and find your rest in me.”

Classes will meet on Mondays from 10:00 am to 11:30 am in the parish center and on Tuesdays from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in the Religious Education building.  Please email Deacon Anthony if you plan to attend the workshops (antngab@gmail.com).
