"Finding Hope"

This year the holy season of Lent begins Wednesday, March 6. All Catholics are encouraged to participate in the three traditional Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. May this Lent be filled with many blessings for you and your family.

Lenten Regulations

  • Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of Fast and Abstinence (Limit of one full meal and two smaller meals for persons 18 thru 59 years of age; no meat for persons 14 years of age and older)
  • All Fridays during Lent are days of Abstinence. (No meat for persons 14 years of age and older)​
  • There is no obligation to fast during the weekdays of Lent. However, voluntary acts of self-denial are encouraged

Rice Bowls

We will once again participate in the Lenten Rice Bowls program.  Please be sure to get one and use it as a tangible expression of putting into practice the Lenten traditions of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. They may be returned on Holy Thursday evening or at anytime during Holy Week.
