HTP Connection – February 7, 2024

Ash Wednesday Masses

Ash Wednesday is on February 14 this year. There will be distribution of ashes at three Masses that day: 9:00 a.m., 4:30 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. The 9:00 a.m. Mass will also be live streamed on our YouTube channel here . 

Stations of the Cross

Every Friday during Lent we will be praying the stations of the cross at 7:00 p.m. in person, except for Friday, March 8. Due to a scheduling conflict the Stations of the Cross will be at 4:00 p.m. Friday, March 8.


We encourage you to come to the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Lent. Here is an examination of conscience. The sacrament of reconciliation will be offered before Mass on Friday mornings (8:30 a.m. – 8:50 a.m.) and (9:45 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.) and Saturday afternoons (3:30 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.). Our special Lenten Reconciliation days will be Saturday, March 16 (10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.), and Wednesday, March 20 (7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.).
