Ash Wednesday (March 6) marked the beginning of Lent. These several weeks of prayer, fasting and abstinence—including works of charity—are in preparation to celebrate Christ's Resurrection this Easter.
All Catholics age 14 and older are obliged to abstain from meat on all Fridays of Lent, including the Paschal fast of Good Friday. To fast is to limit oneself to one full meal and two smaller meals (which together do not equal a full meal) and no solid-food snacks in-between. The drinking of ordinary fluids does not break the fast. Excused are the sick and infirm and those for whom these rules do not meet their real physical needs and who may therefore adjust their fast as necessary.
Season of Lent Confession Schedule: March 11th - April 15th, 2019
- Mondays, 6 to 7 p.m. (in addition to 3:00 p.m. Saturdays)
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
St. John Paul II prayed the Stations of the Cross each Friday of the year and every day during Lent. All are invited to come and pray this ancient and venerable tradition of our Church, following the Via Dolorosa of our Lord Jesus: Fridays of Lent – 7:00 p.m.
The food pantry is running out of food!! More donations are needed!!
