St Brendan holds a Lenten Mission each year to provide a time of spiritual respite & renewal for our parishioners. By inviting dynamic & Spirit-filled speakers and taking time out of our busy day-to-day lives, we open ourselves to receive from God what He desires to speak to our hearts, both individually and collectively as a parish!

Rise Mini Mission!
Our younger parishioners, grades K-7, are invited to attend a mini-mission in the school during the main parish mission. All children should sign in at the MPR, after sign-in grades K-4 will split from 5-7!
The POD Nursery will be open each night of the Mission from 6:30 to 8:45 PM for ages 0-4.
You must secure a spot for your child by following this link. This guarantees we have enough volunteers to safely care for all children present. Children who are not signed up prior to the mission will not be accepted that night unless there are open spots and the appropriate number of volunteers
For our parish mission to be a great success, we need help! Please e-mail Bonnie Creeger to sign up to volunteer. We have many opportunities available to serve, so we encourage you to consider signing up for more than one evening. THANK YOU to everyone who has signed up to help so far!
Parish Mission Prayer
Holy Father, great God of love and mercy, You have surrendered everything for love of us. May we learn to surrender everything for love You. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit that we may do Your will and not our own. Help us to love You above all things and to love Your people the way You have commanded us. Quiet our minds and hearts that we may be open to the gift of Your truth, and grant that our parish mission may be: a time of grace for all, a time of growth for the young, a time of refreshment for the old, a time of renewal for families, a time of healing for the broken, a time of joy for the sorrowing, a time of challenge for the complacent, a time of forgiveness for the sinner, a time of strength for the holy, a time of homecoming for all who have been away. We beg You these things, Holy Father, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
