Join us for the Feast of Saint Scholastica, Abbess and Religious Foundress – Wednesday, February 7th at 11:30 a.m.

Each Wednesday at 11:30 a.m., the Holy Eucharist is celebrated in our church. It has been our custom for the Presider to also offer prayers for healing and to administer the Ministration to the sick with the Laying on of Hands and Anointing.

This Wednesday, we will give thanks to God for the gift, memory, and witness of Holy Mother Scholastica, Abbess and Religious Foundress. Have you ever wanted to know more about Benedict and Scholastica? Ever wondered what motivates all those Benedictine monastics and Oblates? If so, please join us! “That in all things God may be glorified.”
