Music & Art
Enjoy the gift of music as it ignites the spirit. Journey through our Sacred Space and reflect on the image of art both illuminating and inspiring.
In response to Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudato Sí (On Care for Our Common Home), this year Sacred Space offers an experience of prayer through a multimedia exhibition in which we are invited to connect our faith with Mother Earth and, at the same time, among ourselves. The walk is enhanced with art from John August Swanson, Bro. Mickey McGrath and Sr. France White.

To help move people into action to make better choices of how we use our natural resources, the accompanying handout will be available at Sacred Space. Download the Prayer in Action document: "Living Laudato sí In Our Heart, Homes and Parishes." This is a useful tool which will empower you and your ministry to become proactive in the mission that Pope Francis has set before us: “to Care for our Common Home.”

Respondiendo a la encíclica del Papa Francisco, Laudato Sí (Sobre el Cuidado de la Casa Común), este año, el Espacio Sagrado ofrece una experiencia profunda de oración por medio de una exposición artística de multimedia en la que se nos invita a conectar nuestra fe con nuestra PACHAMAMA – la madre tierra y a la vez conectarnos unos a otros.

Descarga el documento de Oración en Acción: "Vive Laudato sí en los Corazones, Hogares y Parroquias." Este documento es una herramienta muy útil que va a “empoderarte” en tu ministerio para ser proactiva/o en la misión que el Papa Francisco ha puesto ante nosotros, la de: “Cuidar de la Casa Común.”

During the exposition of the Holy Eucharist in our Chapel, embrace the time to reflect and reconnect in a quiet meditation ... sit in God's presence and "Embrace Trust."

Renew and reconnect in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Reconciliation hours are:
   Thursday: No reconciliation times
   Friday: 11:30 am - 3:30 pm
   Saturday: 11:30 am - 2:30 pm
   Sunday: No reconciliation times

This walking meditation dates back to medieval times when pilgrims used the labyrinth as a symbolic journey to Jerusalem. Journey toward the center and stand in the spot of "Illumination."
