Holy Week Events and Missions
April 14 @ 6:30 pm - April 16 @ 10:00 pm
CALLED BY NAME
This Holy Week 2022 we are united in the theme: “Called by Name”. We believe that God calls each one of us by name. Each of us are called to life with a unique purpose and mission.
As Holy Week missionaries, we seek to accompany Jesus during this Holy Week, celebrating the deep mysteries. We feel moved to support our parishes and Churches, inviting others to celebrate that week with us. We go out to serve those in need in various ways, sharing God’s love.
All ages are welcome to join us for Holy Week Events and Missions
