FAST & ABSTINENCE:
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS:
Each Friday during Lent, you are invited to come to the church and pray the Stations of the Cross. The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. The prayer service begins at 11:40 a.m. (prior to the 12:10 p.m. Mass).
LITTLE BLACK BOOK:
The 2019 Little Black Book for the Lenten Season are daily reflections which will be based on the Sunday Gospels for this Lent (Year C). Reflections begin March 3rd and end Easter Sunday, April 21st. The books are now available at the entrance of the church. Let the Little Black Book be your Lenten Companion and may you receive spiritual graces through prayer and meditation.
Time slots for Adoration & Benediction on April 5th are now available. If a time you would like to be present is already taken, show up anyway! The more the merrier!
"When you look at the crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you then. When you look at the Sacred Host, you understand how much Jesus loves you now."
