Stations of the Cross

& Lenten Reflection

Fridays at 7:00 pm (Feb. 16 to Mar. 22)

The Stations of the CrossWay of the Cross or Via Dolorosa is a popular Lenten devotion. On Fridays in Lent, we gather as a parish to pray and call to mind Christ’s passion, the journey Jesus took from His condemnation to His death on the cross.

According to tradition, our Blessed Mother would retrace the steps her son took on the way to Calvary, pondering all of it in her heart. For many centuries, pilgrims in Jerusalem have followed in these footsteps of Jesus and stopped along the way to remember the significant events that happened. Our church has an especially beautiful set of stations pictured in stained glass.

Booklets are provided to follow along. Please come and join us in drawing closer to the Lord this Lent through this wonderful devotion.

Following the Stations, we will watch a short 8-10 minute video reflection with Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT. Each week, Sr. Miriam will lead us to meet the tenderness of God’s Mercy, the Power of His Love, and the restoration of your heart and life, as you practice prayer, fasting, almsgiving, and sacrifice. Each session will begin immediately after Stations of the Cross in the Church for just a few minutes. Participants are then welcome to take home guided reflections for prayer throughout Lent.

Watch Party & Discussion

Fridays at 7:00 pm

(Jan. 12, 19, 26, Feb. 02, 16, 23,

Mar. 01, 08)

Beginning January 12th, St. Dominic Parish will be offering a study centered around the new series hit, The Chosen. The series allows us to see Christ through the eyes of those who knew him. The Chosen takes the stories of the Gospels and at the same time tells us a story that is in between the lines of scripture.

Participants are welcome to join us in the Parish Hall from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm for a screening of an episode, followed by group discussions and activities led by our pastoral minister, Michael Aguiar; materials will be provided. We will be viewing the second season of the series, spread through eight sessions.


Saturdays from 4:00 to 4:30 pm


Thursday March 14, 2024 at 6:30 pm

Our parish Lenten Penance celebration will be held on Thursday March 14th from 6:30 pm. There will be 2 or 3 priests available to hear confessions. Father will also be hearing confessions as usual on Saturdays from 4:00 to 4:30 pm, or by appointment.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation, or Confession, restores our relationship with God by the forgiveness of our sins. When we go to confession with contrition for our sins and a desire to amend our life, God forgives us through the priest.

Before confessing our sins, we go through an Examination of Conscience to make sure we include all our sins. See below for a sample examination:
