Winter Hours Notice

For the Winter months, we will not be having the Wednesday evening Mass and night prayer. Wednesday evening Masses will return on Ash Wednesday, March 1st, as a Lenten devotion.

Feast of St. Blaise

In accordance with the feast of St. Blaise, we will celebrate the blessing of throats during Mass on February 3rd, at 6:30 PM.

Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross will be held on every Wednesday evening at 6:45 PM, beginning on March 8th and continuing through the season of Lent.

Easter Lilies

During the season of Lent, we will have a special collection at Lord’s Day services to buy lilies to decorate the chapel for Easter Sunday. Please consider an additional donation to beautify the House of the Lord.

Warming Tree

Bethany has resumed its tradition of using the “Warming Tree” to collect scarves, mittens, and hats for children who, due to personal circumstances, live in group children’s homes. Please join us in our effort to provide warmth-giving clothing to children in need by decorating our Warming Tree with your gifts of winter apparel. Thanks to your generosity last year, many children were blessed with your gifts of warmth.

Prayer of Father Lataste

Oh my Jesus, I want to love you. Give yourself to me and grant that I may give myself to you. Make me one with you. May my will be yours. Unite me to you so that I live only in and for you. Grant that I September spend for you all I have received from you, keeping nothing for myself. May I die to all for you, and, bring other to you. Oh my Jesus, many others.

Bethany Food Drive

We continue collecting non-perishable food items for area food pantries. Please bring your donations of canned goods and dry goods to Saturday evening and Sunday morning Masses. “Hunger never takes a vacation.”

Prayer Requests

As a community, we support each other through prayer in communion with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Please let us know of your prayer requests.

Bethany’s Tree of Life – A memorial to your loved ones.
