SMCS Lenten Schedule Below
From Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday, join the St. Mary Catholic Schools family as we prepare our hearts for the gift of the Resurrection. The season of Lent invites us to fast, to pray, and to give back as we journey to the holiest day of the year. On this page you’ll find a number of opportunities to accept those Lenten invitations. You can join us for one or for all. Everyone is welcome.
God designed us for community, and with that in mind, there are several opportunities for fellowship throughout Lent. The buttons on the left side of your screen will take you to calendars for each of our five parishes. Whether you’re looking for a great Friday Fish Fry or a game of Bingo, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.
First Friday Mass
|First Friday Mass||Location||Mass Time(s)|

Following our first Friday Mass, men of the SMCS community are invited to stay for Zephyr Dads. The goal of this group is to foster fellowship and friendships, witness an active faith for our children, and serve our community. Come for Mass, and stay for coffee, donuts, and conversation.

You’re invited to pray the rosary with others in the SMCS family at 8:10 a.m. on Mondays throughout Lent. We will meet after morning drop off in the SMCMS chapel. Everyone is welcome and guide sheets will be available for those who are new to praying the rosary. Join us for prayer, fellowship, coffee and treats.
Please check in at the office when you arrive.
Take time to do something out of the ordinary during Lent. A team from SMCS will be making two day trips in the month of March to spend time in prayer. On Wednesday March 9, we will travel to The Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion. You can sign up for that trip here. On Wednesday March 16, we will travel to Holy Hill Basilica. You’ll find more on that trip here. We’ll travel together on these trips and enjoy conversation and a meal along the way.
