LENT 2020

Parish Lenten Mission

Save the date for our Parish Lenten Mission!

 Our Parish Lenten Mission will take place March 9th, 10th and 11th; there will be a session at 11am or 7pm each day.  Fr. Ricky Manalo, a Paulist Priest, will lead the Mission, entitled – “In These Days of Lenten Journey”. 

Our 40 days of Lent prepares us for our 50 days of Easter celebration!  In these days when conflict and uncertainty exist in our world, we Catholics have a sacred tradition of always returning to this Lenten journey in order to remind ourselves of our identity with the Triune God and with one another.  This mission presents an overview of Christian spirituality within the context of these 90 days, placing particular emphasis on how we come to understand the Body of Christ “on the altar” and the Body of Christ “around the altar.”  

 

How will you Journey with Christ this Lent?

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.
