Juventutem DC is hosting a Lenten Recollection in the Lourdes Chapel at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at 3:30 pm this coming Friday (March 10, 2017) by Fr. Andrew Royals, pastor of St. Joseph Parish in Morganza. Before the Recollection, Fr. Royals will celebrate a Low Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite for Ember Friday of Lent. The talk and the Mass are free and open to the public. What better way to spend an hour or so of an Ember Day in Lent? "And rend your hearts, and not your garments, and turn to the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, patient and rich in mercy, and ready to repent of the evil." (Joel 2:23)
Juventutem DC is the local chapter of the Foederatio Internationalis Juventutem. We are a group of Catholic young adults who seek to implement Summorum Pontificum in the Archdiocese of Washington. We love the traditional Roman liturgy and seek to share it with the Church and the world. #ComePrayWithUs!
