STATIONS OF THE CROSS EVERY FRIDAY OF LENT at 6:30PM.
During the Lenten Season, or any day during the year you may choose to do, this praying of the Way of the Cross or Via Crucis prayer is done on Fridays. This is a prayer that connects us directly to the Paschal Mystery, to the Passion of the Lord. With this prayer we can pray in atonement of our sins and those of the world. Be encouraged to pray this prayer especially during Lent.
LENTEN FISH DINNER
Friday, April 5th 5:30PM to 8:00PM
On Ash Wednesday ‘Crucifix Nails’ were distributed along with daily prayer devotions. We hope they will be used as spiritual inspirations as we pray for the forgiveness of our sins for which Jesus willingly sacrificed his life on the cross. The nail may be kept in our pocket or purse as a daily reminder of our Lenten sacrifice of meditation and prayer.
Starting Holy Thursday and through Easter, while the Church is open for service, there will be a basket by Jesus’ cross so that we may, in a ceremonious gesture, give our crucifix nail to Jesus.
This is to symbolize our acknowledgement that it is our personal sins for which Christ died, and that personally we are the ones responsible for the suffering and death of Jesus. Let us pray that our Lenten sacrifice will dispose us towards continued conversion and a renewed Easter commitment.
LENTEN FASTING AND ABSTINANCE
The following regulations regarding fasting and abstinence are observed in the United States.
Individuals between 18 and 59 are obliged to fast – eat one full meal – on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Eating two smaller meals is permitted if necessary to maintain strength but eating between meals should be avoided.
These obligations, however, do not apply to those whose health or ability to work would be seriously affected.
