The Stations of the Cross are 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. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ's last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete.

Daily Mass Readings and Reflections


Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten programCRS Rice Bowl is for families and faith communities in the United States who want to put their faith into action. Through CRS Rice Bowl, participants are invited to hear stories about their brothers and sisters in need around the world, and devote their Lenten prayers, fasting and alms to change the lives of those who suffer in poverty.

Participants journey through the 40 days of Lent with a collection of daily reflections and activities included in the CRS Rice Bowl calendar and on the mobile app.

Parish & Diocesan Giving
For most Catholics, opportunities for giving begin in their parish and diocese.  Diocesan and parish stewardship programs should help individuals, families and  communities better understand why, in the context of a total commitment to stewardship that is planned, proportionate, and sacrificial, it is important to set goals for giving.  All Christian stewards must consider prayerfully the gifts they have received from God, and they should make a decision (in advance from the "first fruits" instead of what is left over after obligations have been met) about what will be given. Many parishes now offer electronic funds transfer options for the weekly offertory in addition to the traditional envelope system to help families and individuals meet their stewardship commitments

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is one
of the Seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church, classified
as one of the Sacraments of Healing (the other one is the
Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation – “Confession”).

baptized and "who, having reached the age of reason,
begins to be in danger due to sickness or old age". While
this Sacrament is reserved to those “in danger” of death,
this does not mean that it can only given to those who are
“gravely” ill. It is therefore not proper to call this
Sacrament as Final Anointing (Extreme Unction). This
said, the presence of the priest does not necessarily mean a
preparation for the death of the sick. Instead, this Sacrament gives the grace of healing and
shows the nearness of the Church to the one who is sick. The Church ‘Ohana does not and
cannot abandon her sick children in giving consolation and praying for courage, hope, strength,
The family members of the sick person are strongly encouraged to call the parish priest
immediately to administer this Sacrament of the Sick to those who are in advanced aged and
those who are critically ill. This Sacrament becomes more meaningful if the sick person is still
fully conscious and fully aware in the participation of the reception of this Sacrament. Therefore,
even if this Sacrament is giving the Sacramental healing, which entails the forgiveness of sins,
the conscious sick person can confess sins to the priest, receive the Sacrament of the Anointing
of the Sick and so be nourished by the reception of the Holy Eucharist called Viaticum, the Bread
of Life that accompanies the sick in the journey of “joyful and saving” suffering towards the
