This week is our parish Lenten Mission which will take place on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evening (March 6-8). We are pleased to welcome to St. Francis Xavier, Fr. Chris Peschel, pastor of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in New Bedford and St. Teresa of Calcutta school, as our mission preacher. His reflections are entitled “Without Me You Can Do Nothing” (John 15:5) centering on the gift of our Eucharistic Lord truly present to us in the Blessed Sacrament. Fr. Peschel is truly a gift preacher. All are sure to be inspired by his preaching as we seek to grow in our relationship with the Lord during this Lenten mission.
Here is the schedule for the 3-night mission:
Each evening, Fr. Ryan will be available to hear Confessions from 5:30-6:20 pm.
On Monday and Tuesday, we will begin with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at 6:30pm. Fr. Peschel will then preach his meditation. We will conclude with Benediction at 7:30pm.
On Wednesday, we will conclude the 3-day mission with Holy Mass beginning at 6:30pm. Fr. Peschel will deliver his final mission talk in the context of the homily.
Each evening, immediately after the mission, Fr. Peschel and Fr. Ryan will be available to hear Confessions until all have been heard.
