Virtual Lenten Reflection

With the Year of St. Joseph in mind, the Secretariat for Evangelization and Catechesis will host our first Virtual Lenten Reflection on March 19, 2021. 

Follow the same basic plan that we created for the Advent Virtual Reflection. We have created something unique for Lent and for the Year of St. Joseph. Our Speakers will reflect on the powerful statement: St. Joseph in the shadow of the Cross 

The Stations of the Cross, homilies, and presentations will be done in five (5) different languages, English, Spanish, Creole, Polish and Korean. 

Our Special Guest speaker will be: 

• Bishop Raymond Chappetto 

• Bishop Octavio Cisneros 

• Bishop Witold Mroziewski 

• Monsignor Steven Malagreca 

• Rev. Lianjiang (Peter) Bai 

• Rev. Cosmas Nzeabalu 

• Bishop Gregory Mansour 

Bishop Gregory Mansour of the Eparchy of St. Maron of Brooklyn. The Marionite church is in communion with Rome, The Eparchy is under the direct jurisdiction of the Roman Pontiff. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Marionite Rite. 

The Very Rev. Joseph Gibino, Vicar for the Secretariat for Evangelization and Catechesis has expressed many times to the staff the importance of being a universal church and evangelizing in the native language of the people. While we acknowledge that there are other; languages in our communities we knew we needed to start somewhere. 

We hope to continue to provide moments of reflection and prayer to all the people of the Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens.
