Ash Wednesday, February 14th and Good Friday, March 30th, are days of abstinence from meat (for those who have reached their fourteenth birthday) and also days of fast. The day of fast is limited to one full meal and two small meals (for those between the ages of 18 and 59). All Fridays of the season of Lent are days of abstinence from meat. Fast and abstinence on the days prescribed should be considered a minimum response to the Lord’s call to penance and conversion.
Prayer opportunities include the Stations of the Cross on Fridays at 2pm (Student) and 7pm.
An almsgiving opportunity is to participate in Operation Rice Bowl. Confession opportunities include Saturdays from 3-4pm. Please refer to the confession schedule. Our Cluster Communal Penance Service will be Sunday, February 18th at 3pm at Mary Queen of Peace. Eucharistic Devotions will be held on Fridays from 2:30-7pm in the Church.
