Sung Compline for the Annunciation

On Friday, March 24, at 8pm, the eve of the Annunciation, the Basilica is privileged to host an ensemble led by our own musician, Cody Lawyer, with Fr. David Carter officiating, for our first public Sung Compline, the Night Prayer of the Divine Office. The service will last about 30 minutes and include ancient and contemporary choral music and chant.

On Sunday, Mar. 26, at 5:00 pm, we will have our fourth-Sunday Missa Cantata, a chanted Mass in the ancient form of the Roman rite. Mass is offered in the Church's universal language, Latin, and translations are provided.

At 6:30 pm on Sunday, Mar. 26, parishioners and visitors are invited to join us for our fourth-Sunday Basilica potluck in Varallo Parish Hall. Bring one or two favorite dishes to share.

Help spread Easter joy by joining UTC and Teens Go M.A.D.'s Baskets of Smiles in providing Easter baskets for children in local shelters. Instead of candy and secular-themed Easter merchandise, we will be collecting books, toys, and religious items for children of all ages. A list of requested items is posted in the vestibule and was inserted in the bulletin. Please bring your donations this weekend, March 26, and place them in boxes in the vestibule.

Church Cleaning Sat., Apr. 1 from 10am-2pm - All parishioners are asked to join in stewardship of our beautiful church by cleaning it to prepare for Easter! Please bring brooms, mops and rags. Fr. Carter will provide pizza for lunch. For more information, contact Shannon Hinson.

Fr. Carter is offering a monthly Evening of Recollection: for Men, normally on the first Wednesday of each month (next one is Apr. 5), and for Women, normally on the second Wednesday of each month (due to Holy Week, the next one will be Apr. 19). The evenings include Adoration, confessions, a meditation on the writings of St. Josemaria Escriva, and spiritual fellowship. Evenings are from 7-9pm and begin in the church. For details, contact Dan and Nancy Fisher or the parish office.
