OPERATION RICE BOWL:  Join our parish community in a life-changing Lenten journey with Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl. Rice bowls can be picked up starting Ash Wednesday and don’t forget to download the CRS Rice Bowl app! Rice Bowls should be returned at Mass on the Fifth Sunday of Lent– April 2nd.

LENTEN FAST & ABSTINENCE: All Catholics who have reached their fourteenth year are bound to abstain entirely from meat on all the Fridays of Lent. All Catholics between the ages of eighteen and fifty-nine inclusive are also bound to observe the law of fast on Good Friday. This means limiting oneself to a single full meal & avoiding food between meals. Two other lighter meals, which together do not equal a full meal, may be taken during the day.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS:  Stations of the Cross will be held in the Church every Thursday at 2:00PM and every Friday at 7:30PM during Lent. All are encouraged to take part in this solemn Lenten practice.

REMINDER: In the past, we have reminded  parishioners not to park in the lot next to the Church. For a while, everyone listened and did not park there. Apparently, this has become a problem again. The landlord of the building has warned is that he is going to start towing cars that do not belong in that lot. Please do NOT park in that lot. You can use the municipal parking lot across the street or the school lot.
