A Lenten Companion

St. Joseph’s Lenten Renewal Reflection

Come and find spiritual renewal this Lent by attending the St. Joseph’s Lenten Renewal, on Saturday, March 19th, 8:00-11:00 am in the Amadeo Room. Fr. Barry will lead the talk, “Going
from 7 Deadly Relationship Sins to 7 Grace-filled Ways.” This renewal opportunity is free and open to any adults/young adults. It will cover finding freedom from 7 nasty areas that plague us psychologically: worry, avoidance, criticism, complaining, self-pity, emotionalism, and bitterness.

We will look at each one, and their holy remedies, and pray for one another for Lenten victory in these areas. Short small-group discussions will take place afterward. This promises to be a special way to spend the morning of St. Joseph’s Day.


Stations of the Cross is a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ’s last day on earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. Come and make a spiritual pilgrimage through the contemplation of the Passion of Christ.

Resurrection: Stations of the Cross will be held on Fridays of Lent

  • After the 9:00 am Mass
  • At 7:00 pm at the Adoration window. In case of inclement weather, please participate from your vehicle by rolling your window.

Riderwood Chapel: Stations of the Cross will be held every Lenten Thursday at 3:00 pm

The Youth-Led Stations are available any time during Lent! They can be watched on our YouTube Channel, or by clicking the video arrow on the left.

FOOD Pantry

The Resurrection Food Pantry is in need of volunteers. For over 20 years, Resurrection has operated its Food Pantry to help our neighbors in need. That need continues. In the past, our parishioners have been very generous, supporting the pantry with donations of food and funds. Those donations are still needed, but we also need parishioners to volunteer by donating their time to prepare the food bags and also to distribute them.
There will be a sign-up sheet in the Commons the weekends of March 12th and March 19th.
Starting Tuesday, April 5th, food distribution will be every Tuesday from 6:00-7:30 pm. Volunteers should arrive at the church office at 5:45 pm. Food bag preparation will be every Tuesday morning; food bag preparation volunteers should be available from 9:45-11:00 am. A volunteer for either food bag preparation or food bag distribution does not need to volunteer every Tuesday. Once a month should be sufficient.
