Lent Disciplines of Fasting and Abstinence
Ash Wednesday, March 5, 2014, and Good Friday, April 18, 2014, are days of fast and abstinence. Fridays of Lent are also days of abstinence.
Fasting is to be observed 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. Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk and juices, are allowed.
Abstinence is observed by all 14 years of age and older. On days of abstinence, no meat is allowed. Note that when health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. When in doubt concerning fast and abstinence, the parish priest should be consulted.
Fasting, almsgiving, and prayer are the three traditional disciplines of Lent. The faithful and catechumens should undertake these practices seriously in a spirit of penance and of preparation for baptism or of renewal of baptism at Easter.
Additional Mass 3/23/2014
There will be an additional Mass every month called ” Life Mass”. On March, the Life Mass will be held on Sunday the 23rd at 5:30pm. It will be a vibrant Youth Liturgy with special music and preaching directed to the teens! Come and join us in praise and worship!
Parish Lenten Mission Repent and Believe: A Journey Through Lent
From April 5th–9th we will be having our Parish Lenten Mission “Repent and Believe: A Journey Through Lent”. The Franciscan Brothers of the Primitive Order will be with us to share how we can encounter Christ through repentance and our Faith this Lent. We will have daily mass presided by a Franciscan priest at 8:30am during the mission. On Tuesday, April 8th we will have a Lenten Reflection evening beginning at 5:30pm with the mass. We invite you to join us in worship, prayer, and fellowship. Mass will be followed by a light dinner and reflection about Repentance and our Faith by the Franciscans. The Franciscan Friars will also be available to hear confessions here in the Church every day, all day during the mission. Wherever you are in your faith journey, please join us to help you discover—or re-discover—the Catholic faith. For more information please call the office at 882-4362. lent parish mission 2014
