Lent & Holy Week at St. John

Lent Begins Wednesday, February 17, 2021

The Truth is in the Cross – In this season of Lent, we invite you to reflect on what the cross means for you. In our world, beaten down by problems, heavy burdens and inequity, believe that your faith is in God – who is powerful and compassionate. Meditate that God has the last word, and align yourself with Jesus, who embraced the cross for you, because He loves you.
