Thursday, April 22 is Earth Day and also the day for our monthly St. Sharbel Healing Mass. We will use the evening to commemorate both Earth Day, and the need to heal and care for the earth, and for the ongoing need to find healing for ourselves in Christ. Here is our evening program:
5:00pm volunteers gather outside to help plant newly-donated apple trees on the parish grounds, along with ornamental grasses to improve a section of ground along the church.
6:00pm contemplative period outside (weather permitting)
6:30pm bilingual vespers with a “care for creation” theme
7:00pm bilingual healing Mass (Fr. Pauly Thekkan and parish clergy) with the Sacrament of Anointing
