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.
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).
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 May 3rd are now available. If a time you would like to be present is already taken, show up anyway! The more the merrier!

I write these words on Holy Thursday, as the Christian world enters into the holiest and most spiritually intense time of the year. The long season of Lent has prepared us to delve once more into the mystery of the dying and rising of the Lord Jesus. As I have been contemplating the events of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday, my mind has turned, again and again, to the brute fact of pain.

Escribo estas palabras el Jueves Santo, cuando el mundo cristiano entra en la época más santa y espiritualmente intensa del año. El largo tiempo de Cuaresma nos ha preparado para ahondar una vez más en el misterio de la muerte y resurrección del Señor Jesús. Mientras contemplaba los acontecimientos del Jueves Santo, el Viernes Santo y el Domingo de Pascua, mi mente se ha vuelto, una y otra vez, hacia el hecho brutal del dolor.

We stand at a pivotal point in the great moral debate over abortion in our country—not because new arguments have emerged, but rather because laws so breathtaking in their barbarism have been passed, and a film so visceral in its presentation of the reality of abortion has found a wide audience.
