Holy Family Parish is pleased to host a four-day Lenten mission entitled “First Encounters,” to be preached by Fr. Gerard Saguto, FSSP. Father will profile a few meetings between Our Lord and different persons in the gospel.

The mission will run from March 1 to 4 (Thursday to Sunday). There will be Holy Mass on Thursday and Friday evening and on Saturday morning, followed by a 90-minute program consisting of a sermon, Exposition, rosary, a second sermon, and Benediction. Fr. Saguto will preach at both Masses on Sunday. There will be confessions before all Masses. Admission is free. For a detailed schedule, please see the mission poster.

Fr. Saguto has served as Superior of the North American District of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter since 2015 and is based at the Fraternity headquarters in Pennsylvania.
