Sunday, March 3: UVOC Mini-Pilgrimage 2013

As every Lent, our Northern neighbors of Una Voce Orange County organize a mini-pilgrimage from St. Michael Abbey in Silverado to the Serra Chapel in San Juan Capistrano. I am sure some of us will join them also this year. Read all about it on their blog:

File:Joel (Michelangelo).jpg
The Prophet Joel
Michelangelo Buonarroti  (1475–1564)

Wednesday, February 13, 19:00 (7:00 P.M.)
Sung Mass in the Extraordinary Form
for Ash Wednesday
Celebrant: Rev. Carl N. Gismondi, Jr., F.S.S.P.

On Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent, the faithful have their fronts signed with blessed ashes. In the reading, the holy prophet Joel calls us to recognize our faults, amend our ways through prayer and fasting,  and turn with confidence to God. The Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego have been invited by Fr. Gismondi, pastor of St. Anne Catholic Church, to chant  the propers and ordinary for the ceremonies of the day. Do join us!
