Lent 2015Fridays of Lent:  Stations of the Cross will be prayed at 6pm in English and at 7pm in Spanish (Via Crucis).  A soup supper, hosted by various parish committees or groups, will be held at 6:30 pm in the O’Gara Social Hall.

On Friday, March 13, the Knights of Columbus will be hosting their Fish Fry beginning at 5:00 pm.

St. Dominic Students will lead the Stations of the Cross at 8:20 am in the church on Lenten Fridays through March 20, except for March 6 when the Stations will be presented in Mime at 10am and 6pm.

Confessions/Reconciliation Service: Confessions are heard each week at 5:00 on Tuesdays and from 3:30 – 4:30 pm in the reconciliation room (enter through the Chapel).  Our parish reconciliation service will be held on Sunday, March 15 at 4pm.

Lenten Regulations: The Christian faithful are to do penance through prayer, fasting, abstinence and by exercising works of piety and charity.  All Fridays through the year, and especially during lent, are penitential days.

Abstinence: All who have reached their 14th birthday are to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and on all Fridays during Lent.

Fasting: All those who are 18 or older, until their 59th birthday, are to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.  Only one full meal is allowed on days of fast.  Two other meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal.  Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices, are allowed.  This obligation does not apply to those whose health or ability to work would be affected seriously.  People in doubt about fast or abstinence should consult Fr. Denny.
