St. Peter Chanel Lenten Mission To Focus On The Cross

Published February 24, 2005

St. Peter Chanel Church will hold a Lenten mission Feb. 28-March 2 entitled “The Science of the Cross.”

The mission will be held each night at 7 p.m. and will be given by Father Matthew Kauth. Father Kauth will also preach at all weekend Masses Feb. 26 and 27.

Ordained to the priesthood in 2000, Father Kauth graduated from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and from Catholic University in Washington, D.C., with a master’s degree in theology. He served two years as parochial vicar at St Matthew’s Church in Charlotte, N.C., and for the last three years as pastor of St Francis of Assisi Church in Franklin, N.C. Father Kauth has given numerous retreats to both Religious and laity covering such topics as the spiritual life, the sacraments, biblical studies, the “theology of the body,” and Catholic literature with a particular emphasis on Dante.

On Monday, the topic of the mission will be “The Purpose of Life”; on Tuesday, “The Immediacy of the Call and the Gradualness of the Cross.” Wednesday’s topic will be “Love and Death.” On Thursday evening there will be a penance service, which will also start at 7 p.m.

A nursery will be available for child care each evening.
