Lent at St. David's

Lent is a solemn season characterized by repentance and self-examination where the spiritual disciplines of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving (giving to the poor) receive particular emphasis. Christians do not engage in Lenten disciplines to earn God’s favor or even to become better people. Lent comes to remind us that this life is not the end, and that we do not properly belong to this world anyway. Lent prepares us for the life to come by stripping us from some of the comforts and amenities this world has to offer.


One of our prayers grasps the thrust of the Lenten season perfectly when it says, “Grant us, O Lord, not to mind earthly things, but to love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to cleave to those that shall abide.” Lent helps us to cleave to those things that shall abide by causing us to slow down, take inventory of our lives, and reorder them after the pattern of Christ and his kingdom.

We welcome you to join us in this journey and hope that in the midst of this reflective and somber season, you will be led into more profound awe and wonder as you consider the redemption of the world through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, February 14th

7:00 am, Noon, and 7:00 pm

Ash Wednesday is a solemn reminder of human mortality, and the need for reconciliation with God. It marks the beginning of the penitential Lenten season.

Our 7:00 am and 12:00 pm (noon) Masses will be shorter, spoken services. Our 7:00 pm Mass will include our Choir and childcare. 

Stations of the Cross

Tuesdays at 6:00 pm 

February 20th - March 19th


The Stations of the Cross are a devotion that emerged in the late Middle Ages and direct us to consider our Lord's suffering for us. Beginning with Jesus's condemnation and concluding with his entombment, the stations lead us on a journey of contemplation and worship of the One who was "crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate."


The Sacrament of Reconciliation

Tuesdays at 6:30 pm 

After Stations of the Cross

Sundays at 4:00 pm

February 18th - March 17th


The Sacrament of Confession liturgically welcomes us back into fellowship with God when sinful patterns and habits draw us away. We encourage you to watch this video about making a confession, and prayerfully review this document as you prepare to make a Lenten confession.
