Through his Resurrection Christ now opens for us a way to a new life!
For 50 days we are invited to celebrate His Joy and His great Gift to us: The Holy Spirit.
Eastertide Devotions at Christ the King
Devotion to the Divine Mercy
The nine-day novena from Good Friday to Divine Mercy Sunday concentrates on the mercy poured forth in Christ's Death and Resurrection. This Resurrection is the fount of the Holy Spirit who forgives sins and restores joy at having been redeemed. The final day of the novena is Divine Mercy Sunday, April 15. Papers will be available in the Narthex or you may find more here.
The Via Lucis The Stations of the Light
These Stations recall the 14 appearances of Jesus from the time of his Resurrection to his Ascension. They help those who pray them to meditate on the central event of their faith—the Resurrection of Christ, and the discipleship of the baptized. It is through our Baptism that we they have passed from the darkness of sin to the bright radiance of the light of grace.
Communal praying of these Stations will be held on the following days in the church:
Friday, April 13, at 11:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Friday, April 20, at 7:30 p.m.
Thursday, May 17, at 11:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. (Traditional Feast of Ascension)
You may download the Stations of the Light or Via Lucis.
During the period between Ascension and Pentecost, "all joined in continuous prayer, together with several women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers" while they awaited being clothed with the Power from on high. During this novena we are invited to reflect on the mystery of our salvation and pray for a full outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Pentecost Novena begins on Thursday, May 17, and closes on the Feast of Pentecost on May 27. Papers will be available in the Narthex or you may find more here. Pentecost closes the celebrations of the Lord's Passion, Death, and Resurrection.
