News and Announcements

For Week Beginning March 19, 2017

Next Sunday there will be an after-Mass gathering at the Mexican Inn for food and fellowship. The Mexican Inn is located at the north east corner of Allen Ave and 8th Ave (just down the street from the church). Each person will be responsible for the cost of their own meal.

Help the Ordinariate Thrive - Your participation is essential to the success of the Bishop’s Appeal. While regular gifts to your parish are important, your annual gift to the Ordinariate is equally important. Please join other Catholics from throughout the Ordinariate in supporting this campaign, which will help the Ordinariate grow and thrive! Pick up a pledge card from the parish today — gifts should be made payable to the Ordinariate — or visit ordinariate.net/bishops-appeal to give.

Fast and Abstinence.  All persons who have reached their 14th birthday are bound by the law of abstinence. All adults are bound by the law of fast up to their 60th year. The current canonical discipline of penance for the United States, in addition to the general character of the Lenten season, may thus be summed up: Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of abstinence from meat and also days of fast; that is, limited to a single full meal. The other Fridays of Lent remain days of abstinence from meat. The Fridays of the year outside Lent remain days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the traditional abstinence from meat some other practice of voluntary self-denial or personal penance; this may be physical mortification or temperance or acts of religion, charity, or Christian witness.
