 Vespers of the 5th Sunday after Easter
with Benediction


Join us at St. John of the Cross church to celebrate Vespers of Easter time.  The loving relationship of the Holy Spirit between the Father  and the Son is what guarantees our joy: through Christ's  mediation our prayers are fulfilled by the Father.   This mystery is presented for us to meditate upon in the traditional Vespers liturgy in Gregorian chant.

Pope St. Pius V was a luminous example of the Catholic Reformation. Among his numerous accomplishments, he organized the Holy League, the coalition that defeated the Ottoman Turks in the Battle of Lepanto, and guaranteed the use in perpetuity of  the same missal that will be used to celebrate the Mass on his feast day. Come and join us!

Vespers of the 4th Sunday of Lent

Hebdomadary: Rev. Dn. James Stanley

The 4th Sunday of Lent is known as "Laetare" (Rejoice)  Sunday, from the words in the Introit of the Mass.  In this world it is not always easy, but we are called to rejoice with confidence in the promise that was given to us by our Savior. The brothers will celebrate Vespers of Laetare Sunday at St. John of the Cross in Lemon Grove. Come and join us!
