Lenten Chowder & Stations

Continuing a Tradition

Parishioners at the former Star of the Sea Parish in Squantum had a long tradition of "Chowder and Stations" during the Fridays of Lent. When the parish closed in 2004, Star of the Sea parishioners along with Sacred Heart parishioners wished the tradition to continue, so they jointly worked on preserving and augmenting "Chowder and Stations." After 10 seasons at Sacred Heart, the program continues strong to this very day, now in a parish collaborative setting.

During Lent, dinner begins at 6pm in Sacred Heart Parish hall and the Stations of the Cross for children precede at 5pm. Stations of the Cross for adults follow at 7pm in Sacred Heart Church. Dinner includes: clam chowder or corn chowder, bread and butter, a light dessert and beverages. Recently, the menu has been expanded to include cheese pizza, baked macaroni, vegetable quiche, and other non-meat items. 

A free-will donation is encouraged to help cover expenses. Remaining funds benefit the St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Volunteers always are needed by assisting in cleanup, or by baking some simple desserts to share. You may call the rectory to volunteer, or send a note via our online contact form.

We thank our recent sponsors from Marina Bay who provided chowder for four weeks of our dinners:
