Support the CIC’s mission through our 2020 Lenten Appeal

Prayer. Fasting. Almsgiving.

Daily Mass

Daily Mass is held at 12:05pm Monday-Friday. During Lent, we are on a spiritual journey to prepare our hearts and to purify our souls so that we are ready to receive God in His glorious coming at Easter. The liturgical message at Mass reminds us of this journey. *The CIC will offer Ashes at the noon Mass on Wednesday, February 26.


The CIC invites you to make an appointment with the Lord this Lent. Daily Adoration is held from 1:00pm-4:00pm Monday-Friday. Please consider dedicating more time with Christ’s Real Presence. You can sign-up for a holy half hour below.


The Sacrament of Reconciliation brings about a change of heart through God’s mercy and forgiveness. Experience the Lord’s compassion through the Sacrament of Penance at the CIC this Lent. Confessions are heard from 11:45am-12:00pm and after Mass Monday-Friday.

“Lent is not only an opportunity for increasing our external practices of self-denial. If we thought it were only that, we would miss the deep meaning it has in Christian living, for these external practices are—as I have said—the result of faith, hope and charity.”

-St. Josemaría Escrivá, Christ Is Passing By



Support our 2020 Lenten Appeal.

Our nation’s capital is in urgent need of the spiritual and intellectual light that the CIC offers to the city of Washington. 95% of the CIC’s operating budget is covered by charitable contributions, it is not a cliché or polite platitude to say that the CIC cannot fulfill its mission without your help. Will you prayerfully consider helping the CIC with a donation to our 2020 Lenten Appeal?
