Lent a Season of Renewal

Lent and Holy Week Activities and Schedule
As the Catholic Community of Bartlesville reflects and prepares ourselves to celebrate the Paschal Mystery of Christ, there will be many opportunities to pray together, worship together and deepen our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. 
We will have celebrations at both St. James Catholic Church and at St. John Before the Latin Gate Catholic Church.  Locations are noted on each entry.

One-night Lenten Mission

Forgiveness - Maintenance or Major Repair

Deacon Kevin Sartorius

Executive Director of Catholic Charities of Eastern Oklahoma

Tuesday, March 2, 7:00 pm

St. James Catholic Church

​Deacon Kevin guides us through practical ways to consider the role of forgiveness in our journey of life.  Like the streets and roads we travel need maintenance and repair, our relationships with God, family, co-workers, and others we encounter may need forgiveness to maintain stability.  As someone who leads an organization who serves both the innocent and the guilty, the sinners, tax collectors, and the sometimes forgotten in our society, Deacon Kevin can offer insight and speak from lived experience.
