Stations of the Cross

Do you still remember when we visited Mt. Angel during this time of the year? The serenity of the place, the prayerful atmosphere when we did the 14 stations of the cross? Some of us were given an opportunity to lead the reading of the stations and reminding us The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ during this Lenten Season. Once again, on Sunday March 22nd, different groups in our community will gather in the chapel of St. Joseph along with the seminarians to do the stations. Afterwards, we will have a potluck reception in the Damian Center for our fellowship. Our Kababayans from the Portland Metro Area are requested to bring main dishes while Salem will bring desserts. For detailed information, kindly see below email from Manolito.

Dear Friends of the Portland Archdiocese:

Lent is quickly approaching and it is that time of the year when we make our pilgrimage to Mount Angel Seminary for the stations of the cross.

This year's prayerful event will be hosted by the Filipino Seminarians.

We will gather for a holy hour of prayer on Sunday, March 22 at 2:30pm at Saint Joseph's Chapel underneath the Seminary Abbey. There we will pray before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, journey through the Stations in the chapel, which are unique to our seminary, hear a reflection, and have benediction.

This will be a time where the people of Portland Metro Area, Salem, and seminarians can gather as one community and lift our hearts and minds to God.

We will have a light reception hosted by friends in the Portland Metro Area, Salem, and the seminarians immediately after our holy hour.

Attached is a flyer for this event. Please assist me in spreading the word.

We look forward to seeing you all there.
