DAILY MASS DURING LENT
We encourage the practice of Daily Mass during Lent. Even if you cannot attend every day, perhaps you can join us once or twice a week. The Mass schedule is as follows:
7:00 AM—Monday, Wednesday & Friday
9:00 AM—Tuesday & Thursday
8:30 AM—Saturday Morning
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
Stations are an old tradition in the Church, especially during Lent. The devotion began in the Middle Ages when Christians longed to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, but found this impossible. Instead we trace the journey of Jesus along the Way of the Cross to Calvary and Resurrection in our own church by prayer and meditation. Stations will be on
Friday evenings at 4:00 PM & 7:00 PM in the Church.
Abstinence from meat is to be observed by all Catholics 14 years old and older on Ash Wednesday and on all the Fridays of Lent.
Fasting is to be observed on Ash Wednesday by all Catholics who are 18 years of age but not yet 59. Those who are bound by this may take only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted.
The special Paschal fast, as well as abstinence, are prescribed for Good Friday and encouraged for Holy Saturday.
