Pope Francis has described mercy as “the very foundation of the Church’s life.” During Lent 2017, the Church in the Diocese of Saint Cloud wants every person to experience the life-changing power of God’s mercy and love.

On March 31st – the Friday of the Fourth Week of Lent – the Diocese is holding a 12-hour “Festival of Forgiveness” during which the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available at designated churches throughout the diocese.

Our parishioners here at St. Nicholas are invited to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Friday, March 31st at Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Richmond between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.

The Catholic faithful, including those who have been away from the sacraments, are invited to participate in this special celebration.

Thursdays during Lent, Fr. Tom will have Stations at 8:30 am at St. Nicholas and Wednesdays at St. Anne’s at 9:00 am.

The Men’s Society will host Stations:
        Tuesday, March 28:  7:00 pm
        Tuesday, April 4: 7:00 pm
        Wednesday, April 12:  7:00 pm
