  • Lenten Devotions

    STATIONS OF THE CROSS How will you make this Lent a special time of prayer? An idea may include making a family commitment to attend Mass and Stations of the Cross each Friday evening instead of choosing to recreate in the usual fashion. Family time spent united in prayer is family time well spent! Stations will be prayed in common alternating between St. Luke and Immaculate Conception each Friday of Lent at 6:30 pm and Mass will follow. The schedule is as follows: (Feb 16 – SL), (Feb 23 - IC), (Mar 1 - SL), (Mar 8 - IC), (Mar 15 - SL), (Mar 22 - IC), (Mar 29 - SL Stations only at 6:30pm.)

    THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU Every Monday evening during Lent each parish throughout the Diocese of Scranton will have their “lights on” for confession so that Catholics can come to or return to this incredible source of God’s grace, mercy and healing. Confessions will be from 5:30-6:30 pm and because of our linkage, Monday evening confessions will alternate between our two churches: (Feb 19 – IC), (Feb 26 - SL), (Mar 4 – IC special time on this day 5:00-6:00 pm), (Mar 11 - SL), (Mar 18 - IC) & (Mar 25 – SL time extended 5:00-6:30pm last opportunity for confessions before the Triduum). All parishioners are encouraged to make use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation during the season of Lent. Confessions are heard each Saturday at Immaculate Conception and St. Luke prior to the Saturday Vigil Masses. Confessions are also heard at Immaculate Conception each Thursday from 6:15- 6:40 p.m. prior to the 7:00 p.m. Mass.

    LENTEN/EASTER VESPERS During the Lenten and Easter seasons, Evening Prayer (Vespers) will be prayed in common between both our churches. Evening Prayer (Vespers) is one of the two "hinge" hours, together with Morning Prayer (Lauds) that help form the foundation of the prayer life of the church. Commonly referred to as the Divine Office and the obligation of the ordained clergy, these prayers are truly the prayer of the entire church. Evening Prayer consists of song, psalms, canticles, scripture and prayers and are deeply rooted in the tradition of our Judaic-Christian faith. They will begin at 6:30 pm Tuesdays of the Lenten and Easter seasons. (2/20 IC), (2/27 SL), (3/5 IC), (3/12 SL), (3/19 IC), (3/26 No Vespers), (4/2 SL), (4/9 IC), (4/16 SL), (4/23 IC), (4/30 SL), (5/7 IC) & (5/14 SL). If you have never experienced the beauty of this prayer, we encourage you to come and join us. All are invited.

    DEANERY ROAD TO RESURRECTION The Deanery parishes in the Williamsport area are resurrecting (pardon the pun) the Road to Resurrection. This will be done with a slightly different twist then the original. Each Liturgy will consist of Exposition of the Eucharist followed by Evening Prayer with a preached message and then concluding with Benediction. The Liturgies will be celebrated on the Wednesday evenings of Lent beginning at 7:00 pm. There will be a light reception following. Feb 21 – Immaculate Conception, Bastress (Homilist – Fr. Glenn McCreary) Feb 28 – St. Joseph the Worker, Williamsport (2/28 Holy Hour with Bishop) (Homilist – Bishop Joseph Bambera) Mar 6 – Resurrection, Muncy (Homilist - Fr. Shawn Simchock) Mar 13 – St. Lawrence, S. Williamsport (Homilist – Fr. Bert Kozen) Mar 20 – St. Ann’s, Williamsport (Homilist – Fr. Sean Carpenter)

  • CATHOLICS COMING HOME

    After practicing Roman Catholics, the second largest religious grouping in our country is “fallen-away” Catholics, i.e., those who rarely or no longer practice the Faith. A website has been created to assist those who wish to become active Catholics once again: www.catholicscomehome.org If you want to “come home” or know someone who needs some encouragement to do so, visit this site for some inspiration.
