Fridays throughout Lent @ 6:00pm: Way of the Cross
We will pray the Way of the Cross every Friday during Lent at 6:00pm in the church. The way of the cross will be followed by Mass at 6:30pm. Please note there will not be a morning Mass on Fridays during Lent.
As we look to the beginning of the Lenten season this week, be reminded that every Catholic should participate in some way in the spiritual disciplines and penitential practices of Lent. This obligation binds children age 14 to adults. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fast and abstinence. This means that we do not eat meat and have only one full meal. The other Fridays of Lent are also days of abstinence from meat. It may be advisable for diabetics or those with other medical conditions to substitute another suitable penance in the place of fast
and/or abstinence. There is another kind of fasting too in the modern age: fasting from smartphone, internet, texting, media, or computer and electronics. Any or all of the above - for a definite period of time, an evening or a day.
