Join Fr. Murray in praying the Scriptural Stations of the Cross on this Friday after Ash Wednesday. This Way of the Cross was written for the women and men who care for those with COVID-19 and for those working to find a cure and vaccine. It was written by Most Rev. Marc V. Trudeau, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles, San Pedro Pastoral Region and is used by permission.

Since the beginning of the pandemic the organizers of Ecumenical Services using Taize Music moved their services online. During 2021 they are moving to a more fixed schedule, hosting live Taize services online every fourth Sunday of the month at 7:30pm on their Facebook page, which you can reach by clicking here.
For those who do not have facebook, the service will be posted to their youtube channel as well. You can see the Jan. 24th service below. We hope these meditative services offer some quiet time of prayer for you.
