Support the CIC’s mission this Lent.

Prayer. Fasting. Almsgiving.

Daily Mass (12pm)

Daily Mass is held in-person at 12:00pm ET 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 invites you to make an appointment with the Lord this Lent. While the CIC is unable to provide Adoration due to our ongoing renovations, we encourage you to visit your local parish and dedicate more time with Christ’s Real Presence.

Confession (Before and After Mass)

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 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 the CIC this Lent.

Our nation’s capital is in urgent need of the spiritual and intellectual light that the CIC offers to the city of Washington. 99% 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?
