Stations of the Cross

During the Fridays in Lent, our parish will be praying the Stations of the Cross (Via Crucis) after the 12:15 pm and 7:00 pm Masses. This Lent we will be using The Way of the Cross With Pope Francis. This traditional Lenten devotion commemorates the 14 stops along the Via Dolorosa ("the way of sorrow") by recalling Jesus' journey from Pilate's court and the praetorium to Calvary and to the tomb. 

 

 

Welcoming The New Saint 

 
St. John-Visitation Parish celebrated and honored the newest saint in this Jubilee Year of Mercy in a special way with the blessing of the statue of Mother Teresa at our parish Sunday September 4th Masses.  
 
St. Teresa of Kolkata (Calcutta)'s lifelong mission of mercy and compassion along with the desire to bring God's healing touch to the broken hearted and outcast of society exemplifies the qualities of practical charity that this special Jubilee Year of Mercy calls us to put into practice. 
 
This statue will remain in our lower church to serve as a reminder for us, not only in this Jubilee Year of Mercy, but for years to come to live in St. Teresa's example of charity, humble service, compassion, mercy, and concern for others, especially the outcast and socially marginalized. As she stated repeatedly, "When we touch the sick and needy, we touch the suffering body of Christ."
