Lenten Services at Saint Malachy Church
February 29, 2020
The penitential season of Lent began on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 26 at St. Malachy Church, 407 W. E St., in Tehachapi, with celebration of Mass and distribution of Ashes.
Stations of the Cross will be conducted each Friday of Lent at 6 p.m. in the church.
Each Friday of Lent the Stations will be led by certain parish organizations, including the children of the parish taking their turn on the second Friday of Lent.
Each Friday, after the Stations, the congregation may move to McMullan Hall to share a simple meal of soup and bread or partake of a Lenten fish dinner prepared by the Knights of Columbus. The fish dinner requires a small fee.
Lent is a penitential season lasting from Ash Wednesday until Holy Saturday as a remembrance of Christ’s fast in the desert and as a preparation for Easter. The Fourteen Stations of the Cross (The Way of the Cross) stand in remembrance of the Passion of Christ on his journey to Calvary (Golgotha).
