Communal Penance at Saint Thomas More this Season of Lent

Celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation within the context of communal Taize Prayer on Thursday, March 3, 7 - 8 pm. The meditative nature of Taize Prayer offers an excellent vehicle to quiet your mind and open your heart to the abundant mercy and forgiveness of our loving God. Simple words of faith and prayer are woven into a fabric of song that wraps you in a mantle of peace, healing and hope to warm and guide your journey. During the course of this meditative prayer, the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available for those who desire it.
