As Lent approaches, our parish is preparing for Living the Eucharist. This spiritual renewal experience will involve our parishioners in a number of special activities during Lent.  Bishop Noonan has declared this the “Year of the Eucharist” as the Diocese celebrates its 50 year anniversary.  This program is one of the activities that we will be participating in as a parish to celebrate this special year. Registration is closed. We can only guarantee books for those that have pre-registered.  Thank you

 

Fasting and Abstinence

Fasting is to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all 18 years of age and older who have not yet celebrated their 59th birthday. On a fast day one full meal is allowed. Two other meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal.

Abstinence is observed on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and on all other Fridays of Lent by all 14 years of age and older. On days of abstinence no meat is allowed.

Remember: If your health or your ability to work would be seriously affected, fasting or abstinence does not apply. If in doubt please speak with one of our Priests or Religious Sisters.
